Describe what you did on the page and give your opinion of the final piece. What do you like the most about it? Why? How well did the NY student's work fit in?
In the 'Letter F' page, I created the background including the objects that started with the letter F. As you can see, I drew things like the ferris wheel, frog, fish, fence. etc. I also helped to attach the tissue paper onto the fossa. I also put everything together on the iPad. In my opinion, I like this page better than my 2nd one because we spent more effort on it and I feel like it turned out better. I really like the Letter F page and it turned out better than I expected. I like how it is very colorful and the animal is in a cartoon style. I honestly don't know why but I prefer animations over the realistic drawing. My NY buddy did pretty well and the coloring was great. I think it would be better if the lettering was darker.
Show/Insert your other jobs (anything extra you did for the book) ie research, drawings, layering 3 animals/ cover. Discuss what was easy and what was challenging. What are you proud of and how have your skills grown?
Besides doing my first page, I also created another page with Pepe which letter U. I also did the layering for the research page for letter S. Once again in letter U, I created the background including the things that started with U. I was also in charge of editing everything and putting every part together same as Letter F. In the U, I just got the pictures of the seal and layered them together on the iPad. Something that was easy was actually drawing it and just cutting it out. Something that was challenging for me was that when I edited the pictures on the iPad, I didn't really know where to put specific things to make it look pretty. I had to fiddle around and see what fits best. I am proud how the final pieces all turned out. I feel like my editing skills improved and I can do it more effectively now.
Explain what you did for your publicity job, add a screenshot/link/photo. (ie donation boxes, banners, letters to the school, book launch)
For the publicity job, I created a script to talk infront of the MS as a whole and for me, I created a presentation to go along with the speech. Each person wrote their own part for the script. We also copied and pasted some from the blurb. We planned out the dates and how everything will come together at once and it was pretty organized. We already talked to Ms Burger and got everything accepted. I am really looking forward to the Book Launch.

How did you feel about the Skype call?
I felt like the Skype call was super fun getting to actually talk to them in person. I saw my partner and it was fun talking to her. I really enjoyed talking to all of them and they were really outgoing and it wasn't as awkward as I expected. They also took selfies with us via the call and it was just really interesting. All of us had a great time asking and answering each other questions to be able to get to know each other more.
Discuss what do you think of our final shop? How will you promote it?
Our final shop looks really cool and organized. It just feels really professional and something actual authors would do. I am really excited to receive my final book and finding out the total amount of money we will be raising for WWF. I am especially excited since the book is hardcover. I will promote it by using social medias (Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc) emphasizing that all of the money that we get will be going to charity. I am really enthusiastic to promote this to people to raise awareness. Overall, this project was really fun and I'm super excited to receive the book!!!
