We had IB art buddies. My buddy’s name was Thanh. We ask our high school buddies questions about art.
I asked these questions:
Q: How does it feel like to be a artist?
A: Still doesn’t feel real to me that I’m an artist yet.
Q: What is your favorite piece of art you did?
A: I don’t have one.
Here is my favorite painting from my IB buddy:
I read a book called “Flying Solo“. I will rate it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I liked it because it was interesting. I would recommend students to read this book because it is about school. After all, this was a very interesting book.
This is my figure drawing piece.
In this unit, I learned how to draw more realistically. I learned to change concaves into convexes when we do figure drawing. I want to draw these mannequins more skinny because I think the mannequins on my drawing is too fat.
Q: What did it feel like when you came off the stage yesterday after you finished?
A: I felt exited after the G4 talk. I almost cried tears of happiness after the G4 talk!
Q: What do you think is the biggest thing you learned from this project?
A: I learned that positive choices lead to greater independence!
Here is my G4 talk:
Tomorrow is our G4 talk. My G4 talk is called, Head to A Life of Reading. Today I am feeling exited about tomorrow. Tonight I need to work on my gestures, and smiling to further improve my speech.
We have started the year with our unit, Independent Me.
So far, an important fact I learned was too much sugar is very very very bad for your body.
The most interesting activity was discecting a pig’s heart.
I had a problematic time with drawing a diagram of a heart.
I would still like to learn about the other body systems.
I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems so we can be prepared for discecting in middle school.
One thing I like about this is the discecting.
I am very proud of myself because I took lots of notes.
I really like this super unit so far!
Thanks for reading! I hope you have a good day!
Topic: Figurative language
This unit we were really focusing on figurative language. We were focusing on hyperbole, personification, idiom, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia and alliteration. I like to say onomatopoeia a lot because it sounds weird. I think alliteration is the hardest figurative language because I’d have to think of the same letter to start each word. My favorite kind of figurative language is idiom because I have to figure out what it means.
Topic: Nature Tales
This week was fun. We had a crazy week. We had our new unit launch, and it was also crazy because Andrew built a super tall tower with base 10 blocks. It was taller than anyone in the class! (Including teachers) We also got our first nature walk. We also saw a dead owl. It was a barn owl. It was dead because it thought the window was an open space so it bumped its head in the window. Poor thing.
Topic: Hello 2017
My first weeks of 2017 were very very important. My winter holiday was fun too! My friends Ryan and Jia Chi came over to my house almost every day! At school, my teacher spent a million afternoons leaving to the hospital. We also had a new student, his name is Ben. I am looking forward to having a party with my family for lunar new year.
Tittle: last post of 2016
Today we celebrated my best friend’s birthday. Her name is Jia Chi. We also ended our super unit. We made a busy board or a Rube Goldberg. I made a busy board and it includes some simple machines because our super unit was forces, motions, simple machines. Some Rube Goldbergs didn’t work. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!
