Phase 2 Reflection

I am most proud of the amount of vocabulary that I have learned this year in phase 2 plus also the new tenses because I had struggled with it.I consider myself a Spanish-speaker yes but not fluent because I still need to practice my Spanish from the tense when to conjugate it and also how you formulate good sentences, but the most important is that I can write correctly in Spanish and that is something that I need to improve in phases 3 and that I could work during the summer like I am going to Spain and my dad speaks Spanish too. If I could take the course one more time I would like to have better-organized notes so it’s easy for me too find it and memorize my work but also I would like too improve my work and do more at home because I know it could help me in my grades. My first action for phase 3 is too have organized notes, second is to study more my work, third I need to take quizzes and read books in Spanish.

Unit 3 Reflection

1) What we have learned this unit is relevant to me in French and English because those are the languages I speak but also because were learned the past tense in Spanish and I already knew it from English and French. It is also connected to I&S because we are doing a bit history about other countries and spreading a thing from countries to another one, this relates to Spanish because we are researching about a Spanish-speaking country.\

2) Reflexive with past tense and commands are the key words.

3) What we have learned this unit has a moral which is past tense is not very easy but when you study hard it becomes easier but also learns your terminations meaning your -ar verbs ending and -er/-ir. Also, commands are important because, without it, our parents wouldn’t tell us what to do.

4) During this learning experience, i felt great and happy because we learned new things by doing fun activities, for example, listening to music and filing the text, doing some quizlet live and other fun activities.

5) For a bonus, i want to add a Wordle just because it’s fun.

Grade 8 Portfolio


I think I am good at communication because I can speak four languages. I am currently speaking English, French, Spanish and Japanese. I am still learning Spanish and Japanese. I believe that communication is one of my strong ATL skills and that I should keep it up and improve the one’s that I am week at. I choose to talk about English where we did creative writing on poetry and PE where we did handball skills and our presentation.



I’m a student that is organized and I never get messed up in my things I also reflect a lot of what I did today on the work I did and things that I could improve. I believe that self-management is also one of my strong strength and that I should keep it up like that, I would relate this ATL skill to music and art because you need to be very aware of what you are doing. Most of the work that we do is alone and is very important because it reflects how you are capable of doing something without the help of others.


I think that I am good at socializing with others especially in design and drama because in those two subjects you work a lot with different people you try and see a different perspective of the activity we are doing. We also do group work and we should not be afraid to work with boys and they are not going to eat us. In those two subjects, my grades are good but I think that if I did a bit more of socializing mostly with boys things could change.


I think that I am good but could improve my thinking ATL skill in math and science because those subjects are a bit hard for me and I need to improve them to get good grades. I think that math I need to look more at the formulas and memorizing and doing the worksheet, for science I that I have to study hard and learn formulas to understand the work of science and how different components work.


I think I should improve my research skills in I&S because I feel that they ar every poor and that if ai am very focused and into the project or research my work could be also really good and really interesting to read, this would show that the work I did is really important and that it is useful.


Goal 1:

My first goal is to be able to improve my research skills in I&S so my project means a lot and I can improve my grade. To make that happen I will read a more in English and when I am doing my research I should ask Mr.Hutton or other students what they think of my work.

Goal 2:

My second goal is to improve my grades in Math and Science because later on, I would like to be a doctor and those two subjects are important. To make that happen I will study hard those two subjects and make more work and study time. I hope this will pay and in semester two I will get better grades.

Goal 3:

My third and last goal are to be able to improve my thinking skills in most of the subjects because thinking is the really important thing because without this you would be dumb. But mostly it is to develop new vocabulary and things to say not make mistakes in your work. To make that happen I shouold talk mor with other people and ask them what they think of what I say of belive,

Thank you for coming and listening to my Student Led conference and I hope that you understood what I did in semester one and that I will improve the best as I can my grades to be a great student. Hope you enjoyed my presentation of my work.

Explaining my confort zone during G8 Expedition

The grade 8 trip was great and we got to discover a lot of things about different people and about the activities. The first day we arrived at the camp was great because we discovered the place and where we were going to sleep. We also went at a gym and we played activities with the people from canyons. The second day we went for canyoning and rafting I really enjoyed rafting because I had already done before but laso because we cot to jump of from cliffs and that was pretty cool. I was not able to go for canyoning in the afternoon because i have asthma and that is very sad. I was very angry to everyone because i was not able to go for canyoning and i wished i could go for that activity because it looked great and i had never did some canyoning before. This was the saddest thing that happened to me and it was worst because i was alone for two hours and a half and it was very paineful to me because i was wandering what the others would be doing during tat time and how they were enjoying compered to me that was stuck at a table in the dinning area. I enjoyed going for rock climbing because it’s an activity that I am good at and  also i had already done this activity before so it made it easier for me. I learned that in rock climbing we need to be communicating at all time and also be alert because anything can happen it you are not careful and make something wrong. We also went mountain biking and i do bike a lot around my house and other places so it was not very difficult but i enjoyed the part where we went to a park to practice our strength on the bike and it was pretty cool. I learned that when you are biking you are using much more energy than when you are walking because you have to be careful to where you go and the direction you are going. We went canoeing on the 3 or 4 day and we got to play a race game with my team and splash each other and it was very fun because I discovered that you can enjoy things eventhow you are not on the ground but that you are on water. It was a fun experience and people rely liked it.


Unit 1 Reflection

This unit was very interesting and thanks to the test i saw what were my weakness and my strength. Something that I need to improve is my conjugation and the way that I am going to improve my conjugation is that every night or 3 night in a week I showed chose two to three verbs and conjugate it to all of the tens. Another weakness that I have is that when I start to right something I get confused and I don’t structure my sentences and my text gets messy and then we can’t read what I have wrote because it is messy and wi don’t get the point of the story, to make that change I will read a book in Spanish every day for 10 to 15 minutes to improve my text structure. Another weakness that I have is that I am not very good in grammar and it is very important if you want to be good at Spanish to improve my grammar I will do a bit of quizlet every night and so improve my grammar.  One of my strength is that I am very good in speaking in Spanish because every day or 3 i listen some videos in Spanish, watch movies and speak a bit to my dad in Spanish. Another strength that I have is that I learn very fast another language and that I am very interested in it. I really look forward for the fallowing of the year and improve myself in Spanish because it is a lovely language and also because my father is fluent in Spanish but most of all is because Spanish is easy for a french to learn and also because I like the Spanish speaking countries and I go most of my time during summer in Spain and I really want to improve my Spanish to be good at it and use it latter in my life.

Spanish Goals

This year in Spanish for my first goal I would like to improve my vocabulary because I feel that it is very poor and i would like to have a good level to have Spanish when I am going to take the IB. To improve my vocabulary I would do 10 to 15 minutes of quizzlet every night so I could improve my vocabulary. My second goal is to be able to well structure text’’s and have a good grammar and good words to make the text more interesting and in a higher level, to make that happen I would read more in Spanish. My third goal is to be able to well conjugate in Spanish and use the good conjugation for each verb and time because if I have understand this than it means that I am supper in Spanish, to make that happen I will go on one of the conjugation site and practice this every night 10 to 15 minutes. For my forth goal I would like also to improve my strength with verb’s and adjectives that we do when we go in a circle because it is useful, to make that happen I will go on one of the site on the blog for the verb’s and adjectives for 10 minutes each day. This are the four goals that i want to be able to achieve during this year in Spanish and I will do all of my possible to do my best.

Reflection of my goals in September:

My first goal for this year was to be able to improve my vocabulary and it improved a lot because know in my vocabulary I have 35 new words. To make that happen I did some quizzlet and read in Spanish some of the words came from class also. My other goals went very well and to make that happen I followed what I had to do like to do more of conjugation on a site.
