Young American and progress report reflection

In Young Americans I had a lot of fun performing and learning the dances. This year, I got a part that I had to be in the front and pass a baby down to another person. My favourite part is the Disney medley because we got the Lion King part and we got to stomp really hard and we got the Hercules part and all the girls screamed NO MORE BOYS!!!

For the progress report, we did a self reflection in class, then read our progress reports. In my reflection, the things I wrote about were close to what was on my progress report. I need to work on being more involved in class.

Reflection of 2019

In 2019, I have accomplished some things and in 2020 I want to accomplish some things too. In 2019, I read books both in Chinese and English. In Chinese we have to read 1 chapter per week and the second week, we have to read 1 book with a book report. And for English we had to read 40 books by 22 of January and I read 35 books and wrote 35 book reports.

In 2020, I want to be more focused when I do my work or anything. I would try to move distractions away, so I could focus and not get distracted and I will finish my work faster.


Guessing game

In this game you need to guess the secret colour which is purple. You would have 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 chances. If you guessed it right it would say good job, if you guessed it wrong it would say wrong.

Performing Arts Blues Projects Reflection

In Performing Arts we studied the Blues, after several weeks of exploration, we wrote our own Blues. The Blues is a style of music that tells stories and express emotions. Other characteristics include noodling, playing chords, writing lyrics and performing.

It went well, we finished writing the lyrics because we thought really hard to make rhyming words into sentences that makes sense. I think we could have improved our lyrics because some of the sentences don’t really make sense. If I was to do it again, I would improve the lyrics and be there to make the video. I used two ATL skills, they were: time management and respecting each other. We used time management because we finished in time and we respected each other because we respected each others’ ideas. We thought of rhyming words and made them into sentences that connects to waking up in the morning. I think the most challenging part is thinking of the chords. I think the creative choices we made is writing the story/ lyrics.

Our Blues told a story about me waking up in the morning and what I did, it also expressed tough emotions because my toy Meaty had to be washed.

I enjoyed this project because thinking of the lyrics is fun.


In our class, we needed to make a table with my height and me times 10, times 100, times 1000, divided by 10, divided by 100 and divided by 1000. It was really fun and hard trying to find the things that is the height we calculated. One of the things I found was me divided by 1000 would be the size of a tip of a pencil and it was really hard to find a picture with the tip of a pencil, so I had to crop out the tip of a pencil from a picture.

Explanatory Writing

I wrote an explanatory writing for language about the experiment we did in class. We had to write steps, ingredients, hypothesis and conclusion. I did an experiment where I had to pour supercooled water onto ice and it was supposed to form an ice structure. It didn’t work at school, but I did it at home and it worked. I think it didn’t work at school because when I brought the water to school, it got too hot and it didn’t work.

I wrote my hypothesis, then made a diagram to show what I think would happen if I poured the hot water and supercooled water. I wrote what I saw when I was doing my experiments. And I wrote a conclusion and wrote what happened and what would I do better if I had to do the experiment next time.

SMART goals

My goal is to manage my time better. I will know that i have achieved my goal when I didn’t have to rush and finish my work on Thursday night. I can achieve my goal because I can plan everything I need to do in the beginning of the week and finish my work on the days I planned. It is reasonable because I can achieve it. My goal is relevant to Grade 6 because there is more work in Grade 6, so if I can manage my time better, I can finish my work in time and still have time to play. I think I would reach my goal by January. 

My goal is to read more books. I will know I have reached my goal when I read 40 books for the 40 books challenge. I can achieve my goal because now I have been reading more for the 40 books challenge. My goal is relevant to Grade 6 because our class has the 40 books challenge. I think I would reach my goal by January.


Goal Setting

This year, there are some goals I want to achieve. I want to manage my time better because if I don’t plan what I want to do, I would need to finish up my work last-minute. I want to achieve it by planning what I want to accomplish every week on Sunday, if I followed the plan, then I would not need to rush to finish my work last-minute.

I also want to read more books since our class has to do the 40 books challenge and also I am too lazy to read books, so I want to achieve this goal by reading 1-2 books a week.

I wish could achieve these goals because I won’t need to rush to finish my work last minute and I will learn more words





Highlights of G5 :(

My favorite highlight of grade 5 is the G5 camp. We got to do some climbing activities, kayaking, hiking, and playing games. My partner and I didn’t go to the top of Jacob’s ladder,  but we all had a lot of fun. On the kayak, my partner and I always go faster than the instructor and we play some games with other group members. In the hike, we went an easier way and we played games to get our instructor’s fig bar because we were very hungry, one of the games I like is trying to build the tallest tower with rocks. 

I am very excited to go to the G6 camp because I heard that we will go for 4 days and 3 nights and that is the first time I left home for 4 days without my parents. And I heard there will be a base camp and our group will stay at base camp for 1 night and 2 days at another place and sleep in a tent and we would have to jump off a jetty that is 8 metres tall, so I am so excited! 🙂
