Mythical Creature

by on May 27, 2013

This is my mythical creature. It is called the unseen octopus in Hong Kong. It is only found in Hong Kong and is only seen to those who believe that this octopus exists. This octopus is unique as to see some things you don’t need to believe it exists which is a cool feature. This octopus can change the world as it can also break through cages by ripping the bars apart. Seeing this people can realize how animals feel when they get put into cages and see that they hate it and might change their way when deciding to do it or not. The octopus doesn’t actually look very interesting but  its character and attitude is something to think about.

PE Homework

by on February 6, 2013

Mr. Steiner our Physical Education teacher gave us an assignment where we have to answer some questions about team sport.

What does sportsmanship mean to you/look like to you? Give some examples.

Sportsmanship looks like a team that plays well and people who appreciate the art of sport. For example when you lose a game of soccer you go to the other team and congratulate the team and players. That is sportsmanship.

Why is it important to follow the rules of a game?

It is important to follow the rules of games because if you don’t follow the rules you can get hurt or badly injured or maybe die. With rules then you can have more fun since you know what to do and what not to do in the game.

Why are good team strategies important to success in team games? Give examples of strategies for team handball?  How would you create and/or deny space in team handball?

What is a strategy you/your team used in “Capture the Flag” to be more successful?

Team strategies are important because in order to win the game you must have strategies. Using strategies you can win by moving in a certain way to get away from people and get closer to the goal. There are many strategies you can use for handball. One strategy is that you can have a certain way the whole team moves together so that there is enough room to pass and to shoot so they don’t have the ball go to the other team. Another strategy is to have two players go together and stay close and keep passing to each other going closer and closer to the goal then when they have the chance shoot. In capture the flag you or your team could have a few strategies. One strategy could be your team has an equal amount of people going for defense and attack to protect your territory.

You create space by moving into an area where there is not much or no defense in the area and go there. You deny space by moving into an area where the player is either passing to block or to the  player he or she is passing to.

Describe why having strong skills helps your team be more successful? Give some examples of skills with a specific team sport in mind.

Having strong skills are important because without strong skill how can’t you pass or shoot and without strong skill you will fail the team. For example when playing basketball when someone passes the ball to you and you aim for the hoop you must have strong skills in knowing how to aim the ball in order to score for the team.

In basketball /sport of choice it is important to be good at the following skills passing, keeping the ball close to you, shooting the ball at the hoop, tricks, defensed: knowing how to protect the ball from other people, know how to steal and dribbling the ball without travelling.

Why does a team that is very physically fit have an advantage over a team that is not fit?

The team that is physically fit has an advantage(s) because their able to go further and they have more energy. If you aren’t fit you get tired easily and this can affect your skills. It’s important to be fit so that you have more strength and endurance to play.

PSA stands for public service announcement. Public service announcements are videos that announce the problems the world has and announces it to the world.

I made my own  PSA about kidnapping and why did I make one. I made a PSA because I felt like changing the ways people live  changing the lives of children who are kidnapped and ending kidnapping for ever.

q3 What is your PSA exactly

My PSA is about kidnapping as I said earlier and in my PSA I try to change what other people think of the world. Open their eyes to what is happening to the world.

SLLR Reflections

by on April 19, 2012

On Wednesday, we did our SLLR (Student Led Learning Review) and I thought it went pretty well.  In my SLLR, I needed to prepare a brochure and a planning sheet for my parents and myself.  On my brochure, I added my schedule for what I was going to show my parents.  On the schedule, I put down among other things, Unit Of Inquiry, Chinese, French, Music, etc.  I went through each stage with my parents and spent enough time at each stage.

I thought the SLLR was a good way to know what is going on in the classroom.  I like the idea of it being Student Led as it gives them the confidence to speak about and represent their work and be proud of what they have done as well.

Book Reveiw

by on March 26, 2012

In school miss cahusac asked us to read a book we didn’t read before so I picked Stink the Solar System Superhero. I could tell right away it was about a boy who will become a super hero. I reas that book and the book was pretty good but I think they could improve the book. So this is a little summary of the book.

The book starts with a boy called stink. He goes to school and the teacher said they will have a test on the planets and his sister helped with practicing and then the test came and he failed. Because when he practiced he studied the planets with pluto but pluto wasn’t a planet it was a dwarf plant so stink got mad and he found out that someone else got the same mark. So he and his friends thought of a new saying My Very Educated Monkey Just Spoke Utter Nonsense. Then a character in stinks class went to space camp so she thinks she knows everything and then the two characters of the story argue. Soon enough the teacher had an idea “Why don’t you students gather a team and prepare a presentation by friday then they both agreed and got to work. They work and work and work and soon the projects are finished and the children are very exited and cant wait to see the action. So I am not going to spoil the end for you and this is the end. thank you

Eco Park Field Trip

by on February 2, 2012

Today we went on a field trip to the Eco Park in Hong Kong. They took us on a tour around the park and taught us that people can make basketball shorts out of 30 regular sized water bottles. There are 7 different types of plastic. On the bottom of different types of plastic there should be a symbol showing a number from 1-7 representing the category of the plastic used. They showed us 3 different stations. Each station had a different function. At the first station, people were sorting the different types of plastic that was brought in. At the second station the plastic was sliced. And at the third station the plastic that couldn’t be sliced was melted. We also learned that used cooking oils can be converted and used as diesel gas that can be used by vehicles. I learned some interesting things on this field trip and enjoyed it a lot.

My favorite poem

by on September 27, 2011

This is my favorite poem I picked to share with you

Dodo had everything a pig could ask for. He had fat food,A big, short bed, and the Alibhai family to look after him.

One morning dodo woke up. “I’m hungry!” he said. He went down to the bathroom but everyone in the Alibhai family was still asleep.“I guess I’ll have to find my own breakfast,” he said.

Dodo went outside and jumped down the street. On the sidewalk, he saw a huge pan. “Gulp!” Down went the pan. “Not bad!” said dodo.

Next, dodo headed for the park. There he found a pair of houses just sitting on a bench. “Gulp! Gulp.” Down went the houses. “Mmmm, long!” said dodo.

Dodo was feeling very far as he skipped over to a video store. There he saw some tasty video games. “Gulp! Gulp! Gulp!” dodo swallowed pirates of the Carabean and Mario cart whole.

“Ayya! It must be time to go home,” said dodo. He slept back home and up the stairs to his short bed
“Breakfast! Time for breakfast, dodo!” called Mrs. Alibhai.

“I don’t feel very well,” groaned dodo. “It must have been those peas I ate for supper last night.” Burp!

This is a madlive by the way.
