Haiku Poem

We have been learning how to create a HAIKU poem with three lines. The first line must have 5 syllables. The second must have 7 syllables. And the third should have 5 syllables. But the catch is this poem dose not have to rhyme. First we had to come up with a noun to write about. Then we had to come up with at least three adjectives which we will use in our HAIKU. It was very frustrating for myself because I could not come up with one for the first half an hour. But then it just came to me. Now I am relieved it is over. YAY

Word problems

WALT : solve word problems using the strategies we have learned in class.

Melissa weighs 156 kg. Sandra weighs 98 kg pounds. How much heavier is Melissa than Sandra?
156-98=58            156-98=58
100-90=10             98+2=100
50-8=42                  156+2=158
6+42+10=58 kgs        158-100=58 kgs

If there are 236 bottle caps in a box and Jeffrey puts 188 more bottle caps inside, how many bottle caps are in the box?
236+188                                  236+188
236-2=234                               200+100=300
188+2=190                               30+80=110
234+190=424 bottle caps✓         6+8=14   
                                                 300+110+14=424 bottle caps

Brian went to the store 4 times last month. He buys 89 erasers each time he goes to the store. How many erasers did Brian buy last month?
89x4=                                 89x4                                        
80x4=320                          12x4=48
9x4=36                               77x4=308
320+36=356 erasers.      308+48=356 eraser

Victor has 135 apples stored in boxes. If the are 9 boxes, how many apples must go in each box?
135 ÷ 9 =                      135 ÷ 9=
108 ÷ 9 =12                  36 ÷ 9 = 4
27÷ 9 = 3 99 ÷ 9 = 11

12 + 3 = 15 apples 11 + 4 = 15 apples

One winter night Jake the dog went out to gaze upon the stars. He then heard a disturbing noise from the trees. A black cat appeared as he walked towards his house.

After taking a good look at him, the cat meowed and another family member came but no others were to be seen. He noticed that they were walking slowly and looked very hungry so he took them inside for some milk. Jake’s owner saw what he was doing and he decided that they could use some fresh tuna from the refrigerator.

Then Jake saw that the cats were cold and sleepy so he put them on his back in front of the fire but not only to keep them warm but to let them have a peaceful sleep. Jake was feeling like a humble father that had two wonderful cat kids.

A few months later the cats were all grown up. They were beginning to cause a lot of trouble so Jake’s owner said that “it’s time for them to leave” but Jake wasn’t ready to leave them by themselves.

The next day Jake took his favourite cats outside and took them to the trees where he found them, they started walking further and further but they never turned back.  

Jake felt like a humongous piece of him left but he knew in his heart that they were strong enough to take care of themselves and they could live on their own now.

Multiplication Game

I have been trying to know all my times tables off by heart.

I had good fun playing this multiplication game but it was hard and challenging because I only know some of my 8 timetables.  

I am now going to practise my 8 times table so that I can play this game much better next time.
