Hello everyone!

Today I’m gonna be talking about the skills I used in school because it’s something that all the grade has done. Also I want to inform some people what are the things I’ve done in school so far and things I want to improve on.

Social skills

I demonstrated this skill in different subjects because it was like a teamwork thing to do. I think this one is my first because most of the time I work well with any person for projects or activities. One of the examples is PE, usually we get into teams that the teacher makes like we just finished a unit of handball. We got into separate teams and I had lots of fun because I got people who I normally don’t talk with and I end up liking my group so much. Another social skill that I used was in drama class, we got into groups and we came up with a storyline and we performed. This was a really fun performance because I got to work with people who I don’t usually work with. Something that I want to improve on is to maybe sometimes interact with the person more, like try new things for projects that might help, etc.

I used that skill in different classes and group services such as:

  • Student council
  • All of my subjects
  • Chowa
  • Red and white or Gincas

Communication skills

I demonstrated this skill in all the subjects because in all of them I communicated. I used my skills in research notes, like I tried to communicate my opinion and my thoughts, just to be more creative. I used communication skills in art, design, english,etc. One of the examples is in art when we got to describe our pots in our own words. I used my imagination to describe it as well as I could and it turned out good. Something that I want to improve on is maybe not repeating the same thing when I’m talking to someone or when I’m explaining something on an essay.

^^ Design notebook and the topic is about bullying (Communication skills used to communicate people about bullying)

I used that skill in different classes and group services such as:

  • All of my subjects
  • Chowa
  • Student Council

Thinking skills

I demonstrated this skill in quite a lot of subjects. I used this skill to help me out in things that I wasn’t sure of what they were, also I used my imagination a lot of think about a solution of something. Thinking is really useful in a lot of subjects because it can make you think differently about a topic. Thinking helped me a lot in art to describe some drawings and pictures. Also thanks to my thinking skills it was easy to get imagery in my head.

^^ My animation and my pinch pot that I made in my visual arts in school (thinking skills used by thinking of the shape of the pot and the way I wanted to show my animation)

I used that skill in different classes and group services such as:

  • All of my subjects
  • Chowa
  • Student Council

Self Management

I demonstrated this skill was really useful in a lot of subjects, like in every class I tried to make a goal to do by the end of the class. This worked for me a lot because in most of the classes I tried to make sure I was working hard and doing my best as i can do. Another thing I tried to do was to be organised in everything, like be able to finish all the homework in time and being able to study for any assignments, tests or something in general. Something that was really useful was Veracross because the teachers wrote the homework and assignments so it helped me to remind myself that I had homework.

I used that skill in different classes and group services such as:

  • All of my subjects
  • Chowa
  • GinCas
  • Student Council

Research skills

I demonstrated this skill is a skill that I used in every single subject because most of the time we need to research about an specific topic depending the subject. Also we use research skills for to know more information, and to help ourselves to find good information. I used this skill in a lot of subjects as I said before, for example like we just finished an I&S presentation. It was pretty intense because it was a hard to find really good information for my country  and also to put all my information together.

^^ that is my presentation of I&S that I did with my partner lukus! Also my science presentation on how to make a better bicycle( research skills used to find most of the things about Mongolia)

I used that skill in different classes and group services such as:

  • All of my subjects
  • Chowa
  • Student Council
  • Red and White

Goals

  • One of my goals is to improve in all subjects as possible (as much as possible), like giving more information if I have any any assignments I get. Also improving in my tests, and by that I will try to study as much and work as hard as possible as I can. Trying that will help in the future a lot because that means I can get way better grades and that will help me to get more into school so I can be more responsible.
  • Another of my goals is to be able to learn Japanese because that’s the main language in Japan I feel bad to not be able to communicate with people. I will be able to learn Japanese faster by studying a bit every night like reading or writing something in a paper to be able to have better understanding. Also if I want to ask or know something in Japanese, I can just ask any Japanese speakers that I’m friends with so I can know the meaning. This will help me in the future because I will be able to communicate more with Japanese people and I would be able to understand more the Japanese classes in school.
