An ahh haa moment I had this week was during math. It was when the teacher explained that the diameter is always the diameter x 3. Some pieces of Evidence that my learning is growing is my marks. My marks have really improved from last year. I can also feel that I understand everything more better than I did last year. In the next term I feel my learning taking me to the next level and always trying to go above and beyond in everything.

A big "AhHa!" Moment for me was today during math. We were taught that the diameter is just a third of its Circumference, and the bigger the Circumference always means the bigger the diameter. It all makes so much sense to me. I've seen my learning grow in my hundred word challenges. I feel like they've been more creative and I've put more poetic devices and stronger words in them. I also saw my learning grow today when me and Chipmunk memorized the first ten digits of Pi, 3.1415926535. I hope I'll memorize the first 20. I think my learning will take me somewhere creative next term. I want to find ways to study better. For example creating a song to memorize something. Or studying 20 minutes a day a week before a test. I want to try using more, new poetic devices in my writing.

today a big ah ha moment was when in math we did the radius thing i remembered that i had learned that from my dad so i sorta knew where we were heading.

Today I had ah ah moment in math I couldn't know what was a reflex angle some the only thing I kwon about a reflex angle was it had the circle outside the rays so I got that and I know that was a reflex angle.

A huge aha moment today was that when I was doing my corrections for my poem and I had zero idea what to do then i sat there and thought and themn i came up with an idea so i redid my whole poem.:)

An ah ha moment was during math when the teacher was helping me with my angles. I feel like I could do better in math next term. I have this feeling that I didn't do good in it let alone any subject.

I was reading a story (Dear Canada: That Fatal Night) and it was about the sinking of the titanic. It helped me understand more about the titanic, because we mostly just think about the ship hitting the iceberg, but we don't really think about what the people on the ship thought.

The biggest ahh ha moment for me this week was in math when we were learning diameter circumference, I didn't understand how to do it at first, and now after studying i learned how to find the diameter in the circle.

An ahha moment in me has been in socials. I really found how to bring out the better meaning about my choices about witch children's rights are being violated on my project. If I didn't my only article would be #11 ( you have the right to be protected from kidnapping ) but I knew that I should go be above and beyond for this so I pulled out 2 other articles that could fit in my project.

My ahha moment was my first idea for the child's right which was on the Toronto toddler Elijha who died from himself from walking out of his grandma's apartment and went missing after walking out of the apartment building door and was later found and later died in hospital.

The comment I'm going to leave is about what I want to learn in term 2. In term to I would like to learn more about the child's rights and how much they are broken in the world. I would also like to learn what we will be learning in science. Last of all I really want to learn and really work hard in math.

my ah ha moment found out how to measure a reflex angle with only a protracter that goes up to 180 degrees

An ahha moment I had was in math because I was not lining my protractor to the proper line and so I wasn't getting and exact measure. But when I was studying for the test I realized my mistake and I was able to fix it before the test. Another ahha moment I had was in social studies. Because I was able to find a right that applied to my article because I found that it was a very hard article to find a right to. And when I found I found it I was proud in the growth of my learning.

One big ahhhaa moment I had today was when we did our math. Specifically when we learned that the diameter is about onethird of the circumference. It makes sense because if you think of the ball having four sides then you would think the diameter would be equal to onefourth. Since the object is round all the little parts that then wrap around would add on so the diameter is only onethird.

An ahha moment I've had this week was actually today when we were doing math. When the circumference is divided by the diameter we realized that it would be close to 3. I wondered why it would always be close to 3. I didn't really understand the logics to it, until pi was explained.

An ahha moment I've had this week was today. It was during math, when Mrs. Farrell was explaining Pi. I knew what Pi was before, but I didn't know what it actually meant. Now I know that it's really useful, and fun. I enjoyed math today.

Some pieces of evidence that my learning has been growing are seeing more effort being put into my work. I know this because I can see my work improving, and I am digging deeper (sometimes without even noticing it.)

My ''Ahha!' moment today was during math when our teacher explained how the radius works. Another one during math was when we found out that the diameter is just the third of the Circumference.

An ah ha moment I had was when the teacher explained what a Reflex angle, I didnt think you could draw an Acute angle but the only thing you do different is add a circle to the Acute.

A big ahha moment that I have had is in math. I realized that if you multiply the radius of a circle by 2, you will get the diameter. And I remembered some of what pi was. It is a really big number. And also when you multiply the diameter by pi, you get the circumference.

An ahha moment I had was in math class when we were measuring reflex angles and I didn't know how because I was away. So I asked my friends and I realized that you have to measure upsidedown and subtract the answer you got from 360.

Evidence in my learning growing are in poetry I have been improving in my marks because I have been using ore descriptive words.
