Expressing my ideas

Hallå! (hello! in swedish)

Hi guys! today I’m going to talk to you about expressing ideas. Basically my teacher said that we should choose an idea and express it in a different way. I chose to express my idea by making a video. Unfortunately I could not put the video on my blog because apparently my video exceeds the video length limit. The process I went through was tiring. I had to get a load of pictures from the internet that I thought was appropriate. next I downloaded a song that seemed like inspiring music for the intro. The downloading part took a while, especially since I was choosing from a bunch of choices. Next I used iMovie to combine everything. All I had to do left was a voiceover explaining my idea. I was so frustrated  at myself because I could never get the voiceover perfect. I was scared about doing the voiceover because I get stage fright and even though I’m only talking to a computer it felt like millions of people were watching me.I eventually couldn’t get it done at home but luckily our class got more time to do it at school so I got it done at school. It was frustrating because I still couldn’t get it perfect at school, but I knew that if I didn’t get it done now then I would have nothing to turn it. So I tried my best and I completed it. Although  even when I completed it it doesn’t mean it’s good. I definitely was not meeting my standards that I hoped for. I was hoping that I would have some really cool effects and have some good recording but in the end all that came out was a cringe worthy vid, and that not a good thing. I wish that I would’ve spent more time on it at home so then when I work on it at school it would be epic with tons of special effects and great scientific words that I used in there that makes me sound like miss smarty pants. Instead a whole load of eww came out of it.If I were a teacher I would grade my work a -1/10.

Well thats all for now.

adjö!(bye! in swedish)

Questions I answered:

  1. What process did you go through?
  2. Did you meet your goals or standards?
  3. If you were the teacher what grade would you give it?
  4. What is one thing you would like to improve on it?

This is me poster

Oi, gente! ( hi people! in Portuguese)

OMG one of my first work in grade 5! YAAAY!

Audience: Wait a minute… Grade 5 ?!?! YOU NEVER POSTED THAT GRADE FOUR ENDED OR THAT YOUR IN GRADE 5!

hehe… right well i’m in my third week of grade 5… sorry I didn’t post i guess?but anyways that’s not what the post is about. Its about my poster (the picture up there if you didn’t see because your unobservant). I call this work…

This is Me! technically I didn’t come up with the name because my teacher did but we can pretend that I did.(The drawings on the poster were created by me so all rights reserved to me). So basically the drawings on the poster are supposed to be what I value and what represents me. As you can see from the drawing above you can see 4 different flags. Thats because I come from 4 different places. There is a Chinese,Japanese,Taiwanese and Indonesian flag all representing places I come from.You might also see a unicorn and a half cat man, well thats because the animals were supposed to represent my thought of randomness.Theres also some inspirational quotes as I do like to read inspirational quotes on the side. So in a way my work tells a story. A story of me from my background to me now.We had to present these to the whole class because the whole purpose was to share about who we are. I feel like this piece of work show how I am as a learner just by the way I chose to present this. Like how I drew it meaning that I like to draw my work instead, and how I think randomly shows that I get distracted easily.

If I had a chance to go back to my work then I would because  I didn’t really colour much of my work nor did I draw to much. I felt like I could of shared some more things like what’s my usual emotion or what do I do in my free time.I would also like to improve on how I presented my work because during my presentation I kept on saying ummmm…  and making an awkward pause.

 

Questions that I answered:

Does your work tell a story? How?(question 8)

What does this piece reveal about you as a learner?(question 15)

One thing I can improve on.(question 31)

#THECRAZYCLUBHOUSE😋

So you might be wondering why I did #THECRAZYCLUBHOUSE as my title,well I named it that way because I’m talking about my crazy and weird clubhouse!

Basically in math we’re learning about perimeter, area and volume of 3D shapes.To do this we made our own clubhouses and measured the area and perimeter of the clubhouse base.We also measured the volume of the whole clubhouse. To make our clubhouse we were only allowed to make it out of 3-5 shapes.The options of what to make your house out of were, triangle,Tall Skinny’s cousin(a.k.a a shorter and fatter rectangle),Tall Skinny (a.k.a a rectangle) and a cube. We were also asked to use to shapes as our base.This is how my clubhouse turned out to be!

WARNING!!!

If you die by seeing ugly,crazy and weird things then stop reading this post and go watch some cartoons.

OK,But I warned you…

Clubhouse 1

clubhouse 3Clubhouse 2

Clubhouse 4

See I told you it was ugly and weird…

Anyways we also had to report about our clubhouse’s Area,Volume and Perimeter.

Here’s my report:

Well thats all for now I guess.

Unit Vocabulary

Caram, és bo estar de tornada (Wow it’s good to back) 

Language:Catalan

Seriously! after all the hard work in school I really need a break by writing and what’s a better way than writing to all my friends from the other side.Anyways I’ve done a lot at school but i’m going to explain some thing really important to our new unit.

P.S our unit is STP(Sharing the Planet) and our central idea is Human Behaviour Affects the Balance of the Ecosystems.

So basically there were categories to choose from to add onto our unit board.

The categories were:

Tundra Food chain,Grassland food chain,Fresh water food chain,rainforest food chain and unit vocabulary.

I chose to participate in the findings of unit vocabulary,but Samantha also chose unit vocabulary so we were partnered up.Unit vocabulary was about finding new vocabulary that was connected to our unit then find the definition of the word.

Since we were a team of two I found the words while Samantha found the definition.Here is our list of words.

Now I know what your thinking…

WOW Mischa that’s a whole lot of words!

Well it actually isn’t.That’s why i’m really disappointed in Samantha and me for finding such little words with loads of time!

Anyways this is only the document.Here is our real poster.

Well yeah.

I guess that’s all for today!

My Own CSI!

Causation CSI

你好ni hao…

(Hello in Chinese)

First of all i just want to say that the CSI i’m talking about is not the police CSI. I repeat it is NOT the police CSI. CSI means colour,symbol,image. You can check my CSI on the top of the page. My CSI was about causation. I chose the colour black and white to explain causation because black is the colour of war and white is the colour of peace. Causation causes both of those things. A thing bubble, a lightbulb, a peace sign, a blueprint and a gun for my symbol. A gun represents war, the peace sign represents peace, a lightbulb represents great ideas, the thinking bubble for thoughts and a blueprint for great ideas. Some people or things can cause all those things and causation is about that. I chose the world for my image because things can cause the world to change. Also if you believe in the big bang then the big bang caused the world to from.

Well that’s all from me today!

再见!zai jian!

(goodbye in Chinese)
