My favorite memory so far has been when I told Samantha that she could have a lunch in the room with friends. But later I told her the only day I had available was all the way until the end of the year. It was hilarious. Ha haha. Just kidding. My favorite memory this year so far is when we exploded pumpkins because it had to do with math and it was fun to see the pumpkins scare you guys.
What's your favorite memory?
As a kid, I liked Math the most because I was really good at my multiplication facts. But later on when I went to high school and I realized that my teachers had not prepared me for the challenging concepts of algebra, geometry or calculus. So, for a while I didn't like math. It was until I went to college that I really felt good about Math again. My other favorite subject is reading. I enjoy reading a good novel. I get so into the book that it's like watching a movie in my mind. When I find a good book I don't want to put it down. I like social studies because I get to find out about some crazy things that have happened in our world that most people wouldn't even believed they happened. For instance, landing on the moon, dinosaurs, mummies, ancient civilizations, wars, civil rights struggles, etc... And Science definitely awakes my imagination. It's unbelievable to think that there are small microorganisms that we can't see but that someone thought of it. Like germs, or cells.
What is your favorite subject? Why? And has it always been or has it changed?
I think I learn best when I do things, like experiments or activities that are with partners or in groups. Sometimes when I go to my math class I don't understand everything my teachers are saying so when I have a partner I feel more comfortable sharing what I did or didn't understand. I don't like to learn by only reading but also by doing things. I like to use materials ( small cubes, longs, flats, number lines, drawings) for math. I like to learn by looking at videos.
How do you like to learn? Or how do you think you learn best?
