Last week on Wednesday Thursday and Friday the young americans came to CDNIS. The young americans are people who have gone to an american dance and singing university. They travel around the world to different schools and teach the students to dance and sing in a big performance.
The first day we walked into the LLAC theatre and they performed a special dance for us. It was very complex and looked very cool. After they finished performing it they said that that was our opening dance. I thought that we could not learn that so fast and would have to spend the whole day just one the first dance. We split up and headed for different young americans. Within 15 minutes we had learned most of the dance and were ready to move on. We learned a big party dance and to sing in a choir. The next day we worked on some new dances like the sports dance and other dances. On the last day we worked on everything to make them better. We had to work on the finishing dances but we learned them really fast. Finally we had are dress rehearsal and were ready for the performance.
This experience helped me be more brave in front of a crowed and when I performed I was not even a little bit scared. My favourite dance was the lion king stick dance because there were 9 young americans who had to pick 2 students that they thought were the most enthusiastic, the most confident and other good things. I was lucky enough to get picked by one of them and was extremely happy. But the dance we did was super fun and we learned new things. I would not change anything they had done because it was so fun and could not be better. I was kind of sad when the performance was over but still happy I got to have that experience.
- Being Balanced
I have been more balanced but I need to be a better listener. Over all I do not have any new goals but I am still trying to be a better listener.
First Semester Reflection
As I reflect on your progress over this first semester I am interested in your thoughts about your progress.
In what area or areas do you feel you have grown the most this semester?
I have grown in my understanding of division. This is because I practiced 4 questions every day and now I get all of them right without help. I also grew at understanding work problems will reading them. Now I can read them and explain them mush better but there is always room for improvement.
In what area or areas do you feel you really need to focus on more as the year progresses?
I think that I need to work on reading more because when I read I have to read it over to understand what happens. I also need to submit my work on time. Sometimes have work that I finished but I forget to hand it in.
Today me and my class went on a field trip the Oxfam. What Oxfam does is try and stop poverty. When we got there we had to take of our shoes and go into a room. We split into groups and were given a household registration. We pretended we were on a train going to the city from the country. They explained that the poor people had to go to the city to get money for there family. The people work for 12 hours everyday with 3 minutes for the toilet or to eat lunch. We had to work at the fake factory and put nuts onto bolts. We had to find out what happened to a worker that was missing. Later we found out that he got injured and went home. It was a fun simulation and after that they told us some more about the migrant workers then we went back to the school. It was a fun experience but it shocked me that so many people have to live like that everyday in those poor circumstances.
