Here’s a picture of my poster that I made in Mandarin! The poster is about my daily routine.
This is my skit video; I did it with Tessa and Ana. In the poster, we were supposed to put our family information, our information (school etc) and our daily routine. I learned how to explain my daily routine in Mandarin e.g. 我早上七点半去上学 means I go to school at 7:30 in the morning! Learning this was hard work because I sometimes struggle with Mandarin, but I manage to learn everything before the skit!
My success for this class was that I manage to learn everything by myself. I learned a different kind of Chinese vocab words. How I manage to learn everything by myself was by learning the vocabulary at home, learning the skits I did in the past and I also tried to memorize everything that I learned.
My struggle for mandarin was remembering the Chinese characters and the pinyin. I struggle the pinyin the most, especially in the vocab tests.
Without Ms. Chung’s help, I wouldn’t have learned anything in mandarin, so I really want to thank her for helping me with mandarin since semester 1 till now.
Democracy (The picture of the gummy bears holding the signs says “Vote”)
Tyranny (The picture is kind of hard to see but the gummy bear that is leaning on the blue piece of lego is holding a sword)
Oligarchy (The picture shows 3 gummy bears together which explains oligarchy because oligarch means few.)
Monarchy (Picture shows 1 gummy bear sitting on a throne and the citizens are listening to what the king is saying.)
-I thought that every government in Ancient Greece will be same (for some reason). I thought that everyone will have no rights at all, and I also thought that the governments were all mean and cruel to their citizens.
-I think it is important to learn about the governments because we can now know how the governments developed from a long time ago. And whenever people ask us about Ancient Greeks government we can just answer it right away.
-Democracy because it still exists today, they helped people by improving their lives. They always would want their country to be safe, they also listen to people’s ideas to make their country even better.
My product for dragons apprentice is a face mask! We will put in Strawberries, Aragon oil, Coconut oil, Honey, Oatmeal, and Water. Our main point of making this product is to cure acne and more. We realized that there are a lot of people that have acne so we would want to change that problem by making this product for people to use.
3 main points that I think I should put in my poster is adding my products name have a little bit of description about the product and also I should put fonts that are readable for the customers.
Just do it- Nike had been the best-known shoe brands in the world. People wear it everyday and everywhere! But what does ‘Just do it’ really mean? What it means is that don’t think just do it, take risks. Why I think this is the answer is because the main way to learn is to take the risk and never give up. What I really think about Nike is that they are showing us that their product is very unique! “Just do it”.
After Ancient Egypt unit my teacher decided to do something very fun. Her idea was to mummified fruit/veggies! It was really fun. The first thing we did was add salt and baking soda to a plastic zip-lock bag. The second thing we did was dig out the guts of the fruits and the veggies. The third thing we did was put salt and baking soda into the fruits and veggies which were in the zip-lock bag. The fourth thing we did was wrap the fruits and we put them into the zip-lock bag. Lastly, we left it out for 10 days! After 10 days we got it out and see if anything has changed. And the fruit that we added in (which was an apple) changed the most! The tomato didn’t really change, but the cucumber did.
My Top 3 favorite learning subject in social studies is the SEE, THINK, WONDER. This is my favorite because we use a lot of thinking just for 1 picture. When we are done with writing our see, think, wonder Ms. Wolf shows us what the picture is, and some of them might be very interesting! My second one is the BREAKING NEWS. This is my second favorite because it was really fun to do, especially the part where we could write random stuff about our topic! My third favorite is making to timeline because it was really fun to make, plus it was also challenging because some pictures won’t fit into your paper so you have to cut it, then you ruin the picture then your doomed! Well, at least that’s what happened to me.
This is the mummified fruits and vegetables after 10 days
This is what I am currently learning in Unit 2!
In Math, I feel like I have achieved a lot of my goals. I didn’t know that I will reach this far! I am really happy that I reached Unit 2 because I thought that this day will never even happen! ALEKS really helped me reach my goal for math. Because when I was in 5th grade I was really bad at math, so I used a site called ALEKS and it helped me a lot with math!
In Math, I have successfully learned and understood Fractions and Decimals. These problems were a really hard for me to understand when I started learning them. In Math, I am also very sad/disappointed that I haven’t really understood adding/subtracting negative numbers. I wish that someone will show me a better way to do these kinds of problems. My goal next time is to understand how to add and subtract Negative Numbers before Unit 5.
In Social Studies we had this project with was very fun! We had to make and Egypt World in Minecraft! The choices were Ancient Egypt, Canaan and Kush. But I chose Egypt, just because it has more information, and it’s the most easiest. What we did in the video was explain the 3 important environmental factors etc. (I don’t want to spoil everything!)
For learning about Egypt, Canaan and Kush I had learned a lot of things from Ms. Wolf, I also learned about the 3 important environmental factors which is water, topography and vegetation. For the learning about Egypt I have learned that the Nile River floods every summer, and spreads out silt! Silt makes farming better and faster. I also learned that the Nile River is the source of fresh water, fresh food, you can also wash your clothes from the water! Plus you can also travel from the Nile River!
In this project I am proud of myself that I have accomplished this assignment by myself! Also I am proud of myself by learning a lot of stuff about Ancient Egypt!
In this project I would start doing this project more early, and finish the project on time! And try something harder than something easy!
Today I will be talking about what I did well on my vlog about my Lit Circle book and what I didn’t do well.
In the vlog I have introduce the viewers about the book that I’m reading. I also told them a little about the book, and not giving away the whole story.
Now for the conflict. I have explained that this book is person vs. person, but I didn’t say why the conflict hooks the reader, and I also didn’t put in a quote to explain the conflict.
And the next one was Main Character. I explained clearly about the main character, how it changed in the story, or how it didn’t change, but I also forgot to put in a QUOTE!
I have rate this book 5/5, and recommend this book with reasons. I also spoked clearly, so it will be easier to hear, and i also stumbled a little bit, but I didn’t stumble a lot. 🙂 I made eye contact to the camera, and not to something else. I also did not show my notes to the camera, and my video was no more than 2-3 minutes. I also need to avoid words that i sad e.g. ‘like’ and ‘guys’.
Have a nice day!
