Line Shoot

Today I played line shoot on the digital connections website. It will tell you a type of line and you had to click on the right line. The 6 lines were point, line segment, ray, line, intersecting lines and parallel lines. We had to get over 90% on the time mode. I got 95%. I was very proud of my score.

Basic Facts Karuta

Today Shannon, Daniel and I played Basic Facts Karuta up to 100. Daniel had to say a number and me and Shannon had to get the number that added up to 100. Me and Shannon came a tie.

Number Stones

Today I played number stones with Fraidoon and Oh Hsen. In number stones there are two players and one judge. The two players have to choose 1, 2 or 3 numbers and the judge will tell them a maths equation. If you choose 3 numbers it will be hard. If you choose 2 you get a medium question. If you choose 1 you get a easy question. The two players have two take each others counters or beans surrounding them. At the end we count how much pieces we have. The person with the most pieces win. In my game I beat Fraidoon by three.

Subtraction Triangle

Today I did Subtraction Triangle. I made a mistake in my triangle by not putting big numbers in the bottom boxes.


Today I did Studyladder and  I got 10 questions out of 10! My goal on Studyladder is to get questions right faster than I did today.

Addition Triangle

Today I did addition triangle and I finished it in 30 seconds. I could of done better but it got a harder when I went higher.

My XtraMath Results

Today I did XtraMath and I got 44 in a row. I think that I should of done better because I have got way bigger scores before.

Make A Recommendation

Title-Absolutely Fantastic (At Some Things)
Author-Liz Pichon
Type Of Book-Fiction and another funny book from the series.

I would recommend this book to my friend Eric in my class because he likes to read funny books. In the book sometimes Tom makes jokes or plays tricks on a boy in his class named Marcus Meldrew because he shows off, he is annoying to him and he is disrespectful and rude to him. I would also think that he might like Tom's grandparents because they are funny (especially Grandpa).
