My first goal is to be able to do a spike and a serve really good in volleyball. This goal is important to me because I like volleyball and I want to be in the B team next year. Also, I am doing volleyball right now in P.E. so I want to be better at it. The benefits of achieving this goal are being able to do a spike and a serve really good in games. And also can go in B team. I would like to achieve this goal by praticing a lot. The steps I will take to achieve this goal are practice volleyball with my sister at a park every week.
My second goal is to be able to finish my homework more than a day before the due date. This goal is important to me because I usually finish it in the day before the due date. The benefits of achieving this goal are not having to rush and not sleep late in the day before the due date. I would like to achieve this goal by putting a reminder from 3 days before the due date. The steps I will take to achieve this goal are putting reminders on google calendar and checking veracross.
My third goal is to get better at English. This goal is important to me because I want to get better at writing essays and other writing. The benefits of achieving this goal are getting higher grades. I would like to achieve this goal by reading many books.
My Best Work and Projects:
During this year, I did a lot of things and here are some of the works and projects I liked or I thought I did a good job on.
In art I liked designing our own designs. We first drew a rough draft of our design on our notebook and then drew it on a line of paper. After that, We traced the lines/design on the back of the paper (the line paper we drew on). Then, we attached it on a thick rubber rectangular block and traced it again with pencil to put a mark on the rubber block. After we finished tracing, we carved the rubber block on the lines. And then, we put paint on it and then sticked it on a colored paper. I chose my design to be based on a sakura.
In drama, I liked making a dance with a music in a group. We had this music which everyone had to use and made a performance(movements). It was hard thinking of ideas but it was very fun. It was about gangsters.
I feel proud of my podcast which I made in english. It was my first time making a podcast and I enjoyed making it too. I thought I did a good job on having quotations and speaking in a loud voice.
I enjoyed making things like houses in Minecraft. That was my first time to use it and I didn’t know about it before so I learned a lot of things about Minecraft. I really liked building stuff and breaking stuff because it was fun.
In japanese, I liked making new reports with my group. There were four people in our group so we chose one news for each and then made a news report. We filmed it and made it look like a real news report. It was fun thinking of how to make it look like a real news report.
JAPANESE MUSIC (KOTO)
I feel proud of the piece Nihon no Warabe Uta and Tsuchi Ningyo. At first, I couldn’t play the music but now I can. In Nihon no Warabe Uta, I liked the part “Toryanse”. I learned a lot of skills and I had fun learning them.
Here is a link to my blog post with a vid of me playing Toryanse. click here
I feel proud of the April Exam because I got an 8/8 and I was able to do it with no problems.
I enjoyed doing gymnastics using the trampoline. We did front flips. and handsprings. I really like to do gymnastics so I had fun. It was my first time to do front flips and handsprings using the trampoline and the vaulting box.
I enjoyed doing a experiment we made. I did it with my friend and we used gummies, caramel, honey, strawberry jam, and oyster sauce. We melted it and experimented which liquid will make the gummy melt the fastest.
I enjoyed and feel proud of y tutorial. I made a brownie tutorial and I had fun making it. I learned the techniques we can use using iMovie and how we can make a good tutorial.
I feel proud of my spanish test which I got 8/8. During this year, I learned a lot of words. I want to learn more words and be able to communicate in Spanish with people.
I enjoyed Field Studies the most. I really liked it and I can’t wait to go next year. We did a lot of activities. like mountain biking and canoeing and it was so fun. I was able to talk with people who I usually don’t talk to too.
