Grandma Georges Marvelous Medicine

         My Reflection
I have been learning to relate characters in the text.  

We have been reading George's Marvellous  Medicine.  I thought of some words to describe Grandma form what I learnt from her in the story.  

I found this easy because the author uses good words to describe her in the story. 

My next step is to write a paragraph describing Grandma using these words.

Multiplication Strategy

My Reflection

The strategy I understood really well was the Place Value strategy.  I found the part where you split the numbers into tens and ones so you can multiply them easy to understand.  My next step is to work on harder numbers like 124 x 6.

Break And Make Numbers

 I was learning to make and break numbers the number was 20.  I found this easy because I know lots of questions that add up to 20.When I found out heaps of numbers up that add up to 20 it was easy maths for me and I thought that it was something new for me and I love maths so now I know what breaking and making is.  My next step is to use more practice to help me know more about maths.  So when I know what I know about breaking and making I'm going to know more about my maths.
