Fraction Of A Set

                                                                       My Reflection

We are learning about unit fractions of a set.
One thing that worked for me was the fraction knowing my basic facts.
One thing that was tricky for me was the unit fractions because I only know that the numerator has to be one, I'm not sure about the rest. my next is to work on the unit fractions.

Comparing Animals Venn Diagram

My Reflection
I am learning to first information in a non-fiction book by skimming and scanning.
Skimming is when we read quickly over a text a text to get a idea of what the book is about.
Scanning is when we look for specific information in a text and we look for key words and phrases.
I read a book about white tailed spiders.
I scanned the book for facts about white tailed spider.
I buddy up with Deborah to compare our animals using a venn diagram.  It was tricky because I did not know what to do because it was confusing.  My next step is to find more facts about white-tailed spiders.

I am learning to make and justify inferences.  In this piece of evidence I was finding implicit and explicit information in the text about white baiting.  I found it tricky because I had no idea.  Next time I should ask for more ideas to help me find the information.
