I liked playing factor captor because it helps us with learning our prime numbers and factors. Factor Captor is a fun learning game but it was a little easy but it still taught us how we find factors. Out of all the games I've learned using everyday math this one for me is my favorite.

Making an array helps people find factors because people will learn the numbers and they'll learn how they are supposed to be arranged. If you had the number 18 you could divide it by 2 by using the divisibility rules.

The lesson I enjoyed most was partial sums because its an easy way to add while thinking in your head but it is quite long. In the future I'll use columm addition but I'll use partial sums in my head. (maybe)

Reading is fun

Reading is a subject in which I feel confident about but in reading aloud I get a bit nervous. I have learned listening to others about what they think of a book. Over the past few weeks in 5th grade I became a bit more fluent in reading aloud but I'm still not good at thinking of connections, predictions and observations. I enjoy reading for fun and I enjoy reading for work. Over the few years that I have read I now realize that I do not read different genres I always stick to realistic fiction and fiction books. Almost all the years I have been here in HKIS every year my teachers would read a fiction book or a realistic fiction book but when I came to 5th grade Mr.Daw read us a historical fiction book 'Honus and Me'. I realize that other books are interesting to not just fiction books. I like the way the school is teaching us how to read by reading in between the lines and seeing a movie in your head. Reading beyond the book is what I love the most over here at HKIS. I love the way Mr.Daw reads with expression in his voice I try every day to have it in my voice. I will try to learn to read better every day.
