SLC Special (ART)

As an artist this year I have gotten to like it, last year it was my least favourite subject. We did some pretty fun projects like pottery, zen tangles, and prints. In all these projects they were a long term-many step project. I liked using the materials. Art is awesome because we get to chat and do fun art work.

Here is some of the work:

    
After this I realise that art is all around us, there is so many types of art. I will practice to do other arts.

Thank you!

SLC Special (Spanish)

En clase de Español aprendemos mucho. No solo aprendemos español, aprendemos trabajos divertidos. 

No quiero ser mal pero Es facil. Yo quiero construir más en los talentos. Aquí hay unos trabajos.

Nosotros en clase tenía una lesión sobre Los tiempos por los 1200’s a los s 1800’s. Fue muy interesante. También  fue una prueba después de la lección. El año más importante en todo tiempo fue 1492, de Sr. Giangrasso. Yo estoy agracido por aprender más en esta lección .

Otra memoria fue un juego divertido   que se llama Space Race. Hay que dar respuesta preguntas sobre números o colores o algún tópica otra. Hay equipos también y quien respuesta las más preguntas correcta es el ganador. Fue divertido porque yo aprendí y tenía mucho divertido.

En español yo revisé mi español y yo pienso que es importante a aprender el segundo más hablan idioma en el mundo. En el futuroGracias a Sr. Giangrasso por sé mi maestro esta año.

Gracias!

SLC Tech

This year as an online member I have learned so many tips and tricks to be a better online person in researching, projects like this, and etc.

This year I have joined a Creative Commons Squad. It is an alternative for copyright. With my fellow members of the CC we presented a drop-in session to teachers. It was a fun experience  learning and presenting. Here are some licenses of CC:

  

Reflecting on this tech stuff, I realise that it is a part of our everyday life, it is very important to learn about technology and online tricks, or any device. I will practice these tricks and remember them most times when I’m on a device or online.Next year I’ll be in middle school with an iPad 24/7, I need to apply to these thoughts. Thanks to Ms. G, the head of the CC squad and teacher of all tricks and tips to me.

Thank you!

SLC Social Studies

 As a researcher in social studies this year I have had a freedom unit. We really learned the theme of gain/maintain/losing freedom. Here are the works:

We read these two books about slaves that try to gain freedom by escaping their owners. I can reflect on this later by being grateful to be free. These books were also fun and interesting listening about their lives. We did a reflection on January’s Sparrow, one of the books:

 
As a reasearcher in social studies, I realise that history is important, especially the freedom unit. It teaches us how much people suffer, and how wrong people were having slaves. Later researching I want to us better keywords. 
Thank you!

 

SLC Reading

Reading is a good subject. I have gotten to improve in my volume and stamina. I have been a strong jotter to. Here’s my work:

  
This is a page of strong jots I did while Ms. Liv read us Marshfeild Dreams during read loud. I summarise, make connections and write how I would feel. Here’s another type of jotting:

  
This is called Connecting the Dots. You find connecting ideas in a story which I did a lot.

Reflecting as a reader I am a good one and love certain genres. But I still want to record my reading, I haven’t got round to it. I plan to make a page of book starlings that I read.

Thank you!

SLC Writing

This year in writing  I have become a great writer, I’ve been persevering to wright a lot and strongly. I want to continue to work on this. Here I have 2 pieces of work to show you:

I recently have wrote an informational piece on Vultures Disappearance. This is the writing part, the model is in my Science SLC. I have learned how to not bore the reader with a ton of information and really show  the reader my topic and view. 

  
My second piece of work is my fantasy draft. I chose this and really like this because it was a story that reminded me of one of my favourite books, Percy Jackson books. It also follows the 5-step hero’s journey really well.

As a writer I realise it is fun and later on in life it will Help us with reports etc. I will continue to strengthen in writing.

Thank you!

 

SLC Science

I have 2 examples of science work. The first is on Vultures disappearance.

I’m helping Concerned scientists save Vultures by convincing people to ban diclofenac. Here’s my model,

  This model showing relationship shows the 4 steps of Vultures biggest threat killing them. As a scientist, I discovered the importance of Vultures. I chose this model because it shows relationships on the topic.

The next project was an expirement on Swingers, here is a picture of a swinger,

   In this expirement we swung the swinger and saw how many swings it could go.I liked this expirement because we got to change variables like different lengths of string or a different item to stick onto the bottom. Comparing results was also fun so that’s why I chose this expirement.
  Scientists have to really work hard to find conclusions. This makes me realise that scientists are hard-workers in changing variables, calculating results,etc. Thank you!

SLC Math 2

I have set a goal on a mathematical practice to do this unit. It is practice 8, utilising patterns.

  I am trying to find connections in different problems.
As a Mathmatician, I’ve learned that many practices apply to our everyday problems. I feel strengthened in the other practices so I decided to Utilze patterns. I’ve also learned to overcome challenges.

 I was looking for examples of patterns and I found this:

  These questions connect, I discovered a pattern that the answers decreased 1/2 every time.
After reflecting on my work in patterns I realised that patterns are everywhere!

Thank you!

SLC Dear Parents

Dear parents,

         I have thank you for coming to this SLC to listen to my work. This last week we’ve been gathering our best work from each subject. I’ve been thinking about how much work we’ve done, it’s amazing! 

          This week I took a continuum on my behaviour. I took one last semester. It’s mostly the same, but I’ve improved In following; my passion. I want to get better following the class beliefs, no one follows the class beliefs to me. Being honest to the paper, the his shows me a lot about me. It makes me realise that hat sometimes people don’t know everything about themselves.

           Some social skills I have are making friends and taking risks. I love taking risks! I’ve grown in solving problems on my own.

Let’s learn more about me! To answer your questions I have work to show you for each subject. Once again, and thanks for coming to my presentation!

All the best,

Scottie

Tinker time reflection 3/4/16

Today in tinker time I was finishing up an iMovie. The actor that was supposed to be there was gone so I had to do it myself. So what did I do?

I found a picture of him and a picture of me, the other main character. It was not together so I found an app called Drawing Pad where you can put multiple pictures, write text, and draw. On this I published a photo and sent it to Jeh because he had the iMovie. He added the photo to the final slide to finish the iMovie. Then he sent the movie to me. I was proud I figured how to do it myself.

Next time I will make sure all the staff for a project can be there that day.

Here is the photo I created:
