Exploration Stations

Today, we had our Exploration Stations. The 4 stations were: Drama, Music, Community Partners and art. I did not really enjoy any station, but my favorite was drama because I got to introduce all the plays. My least favorite was art because I did not have a plan yet. Showing my learning to my parents was hard because we had to explain what we did.

IB Art Buddy

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:

G4 talk reflection

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:

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.
