Passion Project Portfolio Entry

A few weeks ago, we started something called the Passion Project. During Passion Project, we did a project about something we were passionate about.

The thing I learned most was…

Time management. I have never been really good at time management. I have always just did what I had to do without making sure I had enough time for the next thing. Through this project, I learned how important time management is.

The best thing about this passion project session was…

The best thing was when I made the piggy bank. It was fun to see a pig form out of a plastic bottle! But it was quite hard to cut the toilet paper roll…

Next time I think I will…

Do something else like crocheting. I think that my project was a bit boring and the result wasn’t that exciting either. Next time, I will manage my time better and maybe think more about my topic!Photo on 10-2-2017 at 1.19 PM


  在二年級的時候,我又長長的瀏海,黑濃濃的頭髮,和一個圓圓的頭。 我的頭髮沒有砸起來,張到我的肩膀。在右邊 綁了一條辮子。我沒有的那些粉刺在我的前額上。兩道淡淡的的眉毛在我的不大不小的眼睛上。我的面龐是個健康的膚色。我的下巴還是那麼尖,那大大的笑容還掛在我的臉上。


 我的外貌變了很多因為我長大了。 我希望長大後,,我想沒有我的粉刺和張高一點兒。





            星期三下午,我從學校回了家。我覺得很累剋還要堅持一下,因為還要去上鋼琴課呢。我們就開始出發了。我們上了出租車,很快就到了鋼琴老師的家了。在我和哥哥當中,是我先上。  我已經很累了,可是還要上。我就拿了我的鋼琴書放在鋼琴譜架上,就開始了。我堅持了,因為我喜歡彈鋼琴,我也很想進步。我很快彈完鋼琴了。現在又要做功課了。真是有很多東西要做啊,但我不抱怒。


Portfolio Entry #5⃣️ DHMO

Ms.Williams came in a few days ago to teach us something. She said we were under a situation and we had to fix it. She told us to pretend we were the City Public Health Director. The radio had just reported that there was a dangerous substance called DHMO that we had everyday access to. What do we tell the frightened city? Hoax or real?

We went to a  DHMO.org to check it out. In the end we found out it was a fake! DHMO is actually water!💧

I learned that in order to have valid info, you have to have a lot of resources and check to see if the website had valid information!



Portfolio Entry #4⃣️ Marble Challenge

This is  a really memorable piece of work because I learned how to work better as a team and it was just fun!

This is a reflective piece of work. We were required to write one after doing activity of trying to make a  ramp for a marble out of newspaper and masking tape. The ramp had to be at least one foot high.

I learned from this activity to stay more on task, work better as a team and to speak up fro myself when I want to.

Here is the photo:


Math Portfolio Entry #3

This a piece of my math classwork. Our teacher told us to make up our own number system with a partner. Imagine that! My partner and I created the Platio alien number system. Platio means six in this alien language.  The aliens we made up have three(rhin in alien language) fingers on each hand.

It was pretty hard work! Easier said than done! I am proud of this because this is a really big accomplishment for me. I haven’t really done anything like this before, so this is new. It was very exciting!IMG_0234 (1)

Portfolio Entry #2

Here is an essay I wrote at the beginning of school.

The theme is…

You get a set of magical sidewalk chalk. Anything you draw comes to life. Either describe what you will do with the chalk or create a list of rules for using the magical chalk.

I am proud of my work because I really like creating fantasy stories, short stories most of the time. I think I have done a really good job at this one with the magical chalk. I have always wanted to have a set of magical chalk/pencils. I think what I drew was pretty good,too. I also think that I made the story have a lot of good vocabulary words.

Before I didn’t really like writing. I thought it was too tiring! Now I understand more of the joy of writing stories and how cool it is to be the creator!

Here are the pictures:

My Entry for my RED Binder.  By Naomi  Niou  5B   2016-2017

This is a poem I made. The type of this poem is the Epitaph, it is not the title. The title rather be Bob Joe.

I am proud of this because I(personally) think it’s a bit humorous.

It is about a person named Bob Joe who was never the same after meeting new friends. This is called peer pressure. So pick your friends wisely!

Making Clay Models Experience

How would you feel if you were going to make a clay model with an artist? I was excited! It was going to be fun,  I just knew!  Afterwards, I felt so proud of my artwork.  😄

Listen to this recording to listen to my explanation:



在中文課上,我覺得我做得最好的是尊重老師,我給我自己一個五(1-5)。在中文課上,我覺得我做得最不足的是我上課不舉手。 我今年中文的學習目標是我每天上課時最少要回答一次問題。在聽,說,讀,寫,這四方面,我的目標是我要舉手多一點!👋
