My Comment of the week goes to Boston!!!

Here is the link to his blog: Link

Do you know about the Matriarchs tale?

Do you know about the Matriarchs tale? If you ask people some will know and some will not. The Matriarchs tale is really amazing when you read about it. Just imagine a small group of female elephants( Only Female) and the leader is called the Matriarch. She has to follow one word sent down from all the other Matriarch before her. That one rule was that the Matriarch was to only have a female calf and never a male. Why only a girl? The male elephant might one day seize power.

So of course this book is about elephants ( My favourite animal). Anyways I had to record myself reading 40 seconds of this book.  What was really interesting was when the Matriarch had twins one female and the other male.

What I thought what was easy was reading this book and trying really hard to get difficult words right.
What I thought what was annoying was that Marta and Manaaki always interrupted me.

Here is my work and I hope everyone of you think I did good.
Comment down below what you rate my reading.

What was easy was Making it look pretty
What was hard was remembering all the steps

I hope you enjoy.

I'm having trouble with understanding this ( DECIMALS)

I chose to represent  the number 6.95 in a variety of ways. Did you know that there are 69 tenths and 5 hundredths in this number. You can also say that there is 6 ones, 9 tenths and 5 hundredths. Sometimes in can get really confusing (especially for me) but once you understand it,  it  get easier. We have been learning about how many tenths, hundredths and wholes are in any given number.  We were also challenged to share the different ways in which we can show our learning.

I thought I did good because I didn't even know what we were doing( It was hard for me to understand what we were learning).

What was easy for me was drawing the decimal.
What was challenging was understanding what I had to do.
