It has been a fantastic and memorable year in 4C. Parents, thank you for all of your support. Students, you have come so far this year. I am proud of each of you. You will be missed. Keep up the good work in Grade 5 and come back to visit anytime. Have a wonderful summer. Here is the poem we created together about our year.
We are From 4C
We are from the swish of the flag marching towards the food
From sweating and hot humid air
From the drops of silence when the corn lands
From Ms. Thao’s art gallery to the treks of geologist
We are from the stinky smell of the lunch box to our stinky feet after PE
From rainbow lemonade to a robot maze
from SDG’s to little alchemy
We are from hugging legs to fidget spinner mania
From “Don’t give up” to “Music is fractions deal with it”
We are from shots of paper in the bin to the scraps of paper on the floor
“In Math we learned that music notes are the same thing as fractions. So we learned how to add music fractions up to make a whole.
Then we could make our own song, get one from the internet or use one Ms. Mindy had for us and we had to write the fractions for the song. Then we changed the fractions into decimals and put it into scratch to hear our song.” – Felix
“Our class made a video to show how sounds add up to a whole. In our video Eulalia and Hai Nam were making a whole note. Ha Chi and Hedvig’s table were making a half note. My table was making fourth notes, another table made eighth notes and another made sixteenth notes. We were learning math through music because everything that you see is almost Math, like when you read a clock or when you cook. So technically we were making fractions from music.” – Talya
Visit the students blogs next week to see the music that we coded into Scratch.
