  1. The Nile River Flooded in Mid June or July
  2. The Desert was one of an advantage 
  3. The Vocabulary words and what papyrus were

I would speak a little clearer with no background noises.



(6 Grade) How to Help my self

Sometimes, I can get distracted very easily, and it’s not easy when doing my homework. So I’m going to show ways I can stay focus and on tasks.

Firstly, I can go in a room that is the farthest from where my family is, then lock myself in that room so that I won’t get distracted by them, I think for me that I should bring all the materials i need incase I go out and get then will never return back into my room. Next tip is that there is an app called STAY FOCUS that I got from the app store, this is very  useful since you can set a timer of how long you want to stay focus then every website you go to for example like youtube and like that, it won’t work for the amount of minute that you set the timer to be, but if you go to an article, the ads and pop up websites or something that you would be willing to press, will not appear on that screen, but then in every 30 minute or so they will give you a break and do anything for 5-10 minute then return back to your task. The third tip is that for me, I tend to get bore and start doodling and not focus on the task. So there is this solution that might help, and it is that when I am bored, I can listen to music for about 5 minutes and continue with my work, and I think that will wake my mind up and now I can focus on my task again. To wrap thing, I would like to sit in a comfortable place since I am way better at focusing when I am in a cool, comfortable and a cosy place, but not too much since I can sleep or just get around and sit there enjoying!

So these are the ways I can Help Myself

A little Paragraph about my life

A few weeks ago, we were working on Memoir about our selves. We all have a lot of funny, scary, and a memorable moment that happened to us, or not us only, there might be a friend or a family member in it. And this is a little paragraph of my memoir:

                                          Incoming Bomb!!

It was a cool sunny Sunday morning with birds chirping and cool breeze brushing through my face, my family and I, we were going to eat breakfast. It was a cool day outside, so my family  decided to sit in a place that was peaceful with a lot of trees around. Then we ordered breakfast and drink and Yadada, I was enjoying myself and playing around with my cousin until I got super duper tired and needed a drink. Me and my Cousins, we were telling stories about how we stepped on poop or had animal do their business on us. I actually never had an accident of animal doing business on me so  I was fine, well, at least not yet. I wasn’t aware what would come to me today…

‘ Thump, Thump, Thump’  My heart was pounding…  “THE WALL!!!!!! A sudden voice came, it was our turn. My hands were sweating, my body was trembling, I thought I was going to faint at that point. I slowly walked up with my group, I was smiling, very awkwardly then we started to introduce out self.

My first teammate (Kim) was presenting first, then Helen (My other teammate) then back to Kim, and while they were presenting, it was my only chance to skim through my script and TRYING  to memorise it. Then… my nightmare came true, it was MY TURN!!! I read as fast and carefully as I could, trying my best not to screw it up… ( Yadda Yaddah Yadda)  YASSSSS!!!!!!!! I am DONE!!!!!!!!  I did not screw up, at all (Phew!). Then, my group and I, we grabbed everybody’s attention… Clap!! Clap!! Clap!! All hands were clapping, again, I stood there smiling very awkwardly, trying to hide my face.

              QUESTION TIME!! 

Our first questions were pretty easy, Mr. Jeremy asked us: (1) Where will you make the prototype (2) Will the sound in the other room be transmitted into another room which will cause distractions?

Then The answer was: Kim: (1)As we said in our pitch, we are going to make a prototype in the 5th grade classrooms, then if it is successful, we will make it so that it will be in the whole elementary (Grade 1 – Grade 5). (2) The sound would not be transmitted through the other room because we will make sure it is going to be like the permanent walls but it would be slidable when needed to be slide. We will have a strong magnet so it would not slide when it is touched accidentally.

Question #3 Ms. Roxxane asked us: (3)How do you know when it is successful? (4) How long will it take to demolish the wall?

This time, Helen answered: (3)We will know if it is successful because when we cannot hear sounds from the other classrooms and also we will send out a survey  and the grade that have the sliding wall will put a suggestions or comment about the sliding walls, and if we have some suggestions we need, then we will fix it over the summer.

(4) Helen and Kim answer(s): We did not really research that yet because it actually depend on how thick the wall is, so we are not sure how long.

{ As you can see, I seem to talk less then my other mates because I don’t like talking in front of crowd, and I was helping answer the questions that the judges asked }

                                         A Few Moments Later (1 Day)

In the Morning as I walked in the classrooms, people were talking about the shark tank and guessing would they make it in or not. I wasn’t sure if I would want to be picked for the 2nd round because I don’t really like presenting in front of crowds and also, if I go to the second level, there will be more hope and I would be sad if I don’t get a green light, so I did not really care f i get picked or not. Just then, the 2 other classes were pouring in to 5ME classroom (the class I am in) then Mrs. Roxxane, she was opened the door and we all shushed right away. { I will skip to the good part because the other parts are just talking }

Ms. Roxxane (I don’t really remember some of the things she said): Soo… We are all excited for the conclusion of level 1, Don’t be disappointed if you did not get the green light, maybe it was too complicated to make or we don’t have enough time, and the judges had a hard time choosing, but we came in to a conclusion, 7 teams had been chosen, and they are the Green Wall and the Plastic bottle Garden.

We did not make it in, I didn’t really mind. But then we had no homework for ONLY A WEEK!! I wanted it to be a month!! Or years!! 

And here are the teams that made it in with out having to work with other teams (You get it? Probably Not) : Hut Of Learning and The Standing desks. 

                    To conclude this, EVERYONE did a FANTABSOME JOB!!


TOO MUCH FUN (? or ??)¡!¡!

YAAAASSSS?!!!! FINALLY!!! I am back?… ALIVE, I first thought I could not make it back alive..?.  But I guess I was totally wrong, cause I love it and want to stay in Cat Tien for a few more weeks.

It was a fantastic trip?, although some people were homesick..?. But still, we all had a lot of fun! I my favourite activities were the group challenge, Moon bears and also the Bon-Fire?. I think that the Safari was really cool? because we saw some deers, moose, weasels and porcupine (etc…).  We got to eat soft melted, roast marshmallows

!!!!!!! I did not really recommend the bathroom but it is ok. The A.C was so cold, and as you know, in the forest?, there are lots and lots of bugs?. We needed a lot of bugs sprays to avoid all the bugs. The Bon-fire was awesome because we got to have Marshmallows, tell scary stories?, and sing! When it was the student-led bonfire,

The Bon-fire!!!?

Anna, Helen, Halia, Isobel, Saki, Soobin, and I, we told and act out the scary story, the storyteller was Anna, and the main to actors were Halia and Helen, the sound?/lighting? effect was me and Saki. We had a volunteer, she was pretty scared (Lol? )and screamed so loud when Anna came towards her(LOL#2?). The Group challenge was also great because we got to cooperate with each other and there was lots of fun games?! The Moon bears centre was really cool? cause we get to hide foods? and later see how the bears get the foods?. There was one bears that I named Cookie?, but then he ate one of my classmates food first, so he said it was his bear, but I still have the credit for the name?…I really liked how there was NO TECHNOLOGY? because you get to explore the nature??.  

We went on a night? sensory hike? and the morning? gibbon? hike?, the night sensory hikes, we saw a lot of stars? that were really bright and also some fireflies which I thought were also stars, too. The morning hike, I was a bit grumpy?,but I manage to stay on my good mood?, it was pretty cold❄️ but a few minutes later, when the sun started to rise?, it was warmer. I almost fell asleep when we were taking a rest, I was so tired because my cabin slept at 11:30 or so, but we luckily had a loud alarm⏰, so it woke us up at 5:00 – 5:15. The gibbon? sound wasn’t as much as I expected when we were hiking, but then right when we were in our cabin, the gibbon starts to sing/call. In my head, I was like “Uhhh, We seriously went hiking for nothing…”  But then the sunrise? was really pretty and the air in the morning was cool and it felt fresh! 

I think that the challenge for me was the bugs?, they were everywhere around our room (Don’t panic, they won’t hurt you), also the hike?, I wasn’t a very good Hiker so my legs had to suffered the whole way… There was a snake? in my friends room, but it was harmless(I think ?), I was so shocked? when I heard about it, but then problem was solved.

I think that this trip helped me understand a lot about sustainability because we are interact with nature? and we are helping save the natures, so we use things that are reusable? and is very eco-friendly(Green).

So my reflection about the Cat Tien trip means the trip was… FANTABSOME? (FANTASTIC AND AWESOME), AMAZING?, AND FUN?!!!

Sorry If you had to read a long post, the trip had so much fun!


A Boat ride to the Primate centre
Moon bears finding the food we hid!!

Information Report Rubric/Reflection ?

Howdy people!! Tet break is sadly over?, but the fun is going to begin, at school?!!

We have been working on our information report an our teacher checked it, and this, now is the final check…  We use our C.A.R.P ( C=Contrast A=Alignment R=Repetition P=Proximity)  Rubric to help us guide through. I think it helps a lot because it can attract the reader easily. 

I think I made a good progress but i need to work on it too.

2 Week Reading Goal + Action Plan?


My goal is to read more Biography or fantasy more than Mystery. Also my other goal is to read at least 30 minutes?.


Time myself to read at least 30 minutes. Make a chart? of Biography books, fantasy? and Mystery? and try to balance the genre I am reading?.


Wednesday: I found a Fantasy book and timed myself for 30 minutes

Thursday: I read for 30 minutes but I didn’t choose a fantasy book or Non-Fiction

Monday: I read a non-fiction book for 34 minutes

Tuesday: I read a non-fiction book for 33 minutes

Thursday: I read a national Geographic book for 44 minutes

Friday: I read a realistic fiction book for 34 minutes


I think that I did good for the time I spent reading the book because I am starting to feel like the time⏰ is shorter then what I expected it to be, because I get so hooked into the book?, but I think I should improve on reading more fantasy books? ? because I think that if I try reading more, I think I will like it and start reading other genres, not only mystery books?. 


WASSUP’!!For our Super Unit, we did a project, my partner was Helen. Our experience was about Chemical reaction, so the question was : How many Mentos will make a ziplock bag explode?}

I learned that it works, but the type of Mentos wan’t a good brand so that it did not make the bag explode – explode, but it only explode like the zip opened. I also learned that Coke and Mentos has a Chemical reaction because in the Mentos,

I really like the part where the zip opened and then it spilled all over Helen and a bit on me. and also the failure, we expected it to explode so we had gears, but then it did not explode, at all.

It would have been better if we had better Mentos because our were not good quality and so it did not have the ingredient to make the Physical reaction.


THE CONCERT… Yesterday was the fall concert?, the fourth grade was a blast, but when it came to is, the 5th grade, ehhh, I don’t think so… I think it was pretty good the instrument part??, but when it came to the singing part,hehe…?. I think that we need more practice because like we only had 2 practices and then,BOOM, it is Thursday. If you know the song Henry Martin, we had a solo part, so each class sings each verse, and our verse, we did not remembered at first but we actually made it without a mistake!!! That was the best part of all, but the part that I don;t think was so fluent was the recorder (It is like a flute, not a recorder machine or anything, it is a instrument) some were squeaky and some were too loud and some people were not even playing it!! I actually played, but only the first part, I did not play the rest??. Then, it was kinda funny because one of the song, when we practice, it was so fluent but guess what? When we sang it to the audience, we got messed up and some were mumbling the word… I think that we need some more improvements.


I think that it is time to go!! SEE YA ALL!!?

Reflection Time #2 (Inquiry)

Lol!!! Something weird just happen, but I am not going to talk about it in this post, in this post we are talking about the inquiry info…?(Humph…)


So I have been following the schedule, but the problem is, the day of my schedule, I am following the structure but the date, eh, because sometimes we don’t do it in class, neither do I do it at home, so ya… I found a lot of answer and I fixed my old problem (If you didn’t read my other post) I changed some question and now, it is very easy to answer the question. SO I am basically on task… Not really, hehe… I do not like the most is the taking notes because I forgot to do it so I am too lazy to do it again and find the website, but I have to???.. WAH!!!!I am almost done with the paraphrasing, I only need about 2 more then I think that I am done!!! YAY!!! I am on TASK.
