5C Experiencing K1

5C Experiencing K1

On May 8th, 5C went to K1 to experience the difference between a Kindergarten and 5th grade. While we were going there, it was very bright and hot that you could barely open your eyes. While I was walking, I was curious why we were going to K1 not knowing the reason why.

First, when we arrived we sang this song called, “ Open Shut Them”. It was very fun singing that song. And after that, we read a book called “Who Sank the Boat?” and some of our classmates were the characters for the book. And others were the boat for the story. We acted out what was happening in the story and we finished our story thinking who sank the boat.

After that, we sang another song called “Speckled Frogs”. We had  some of our classmates to be five frogs for our song, and the others made a pond. We sat like a circle and made some spaces for the frogs to jump in our pond. We sang the song and every time, a frog jumped in to our pond. And when there were no more frogs, we ended the song.

Next, Ms. Angela said a number and we had to show the number as many ways we can show. Some people showed ways that were very unique and I never even thought about. But things mostly we showed were all the same. Because they were mostly what we would show if we had to show it numbers.

Lastly, we took photos of objects from 1 to 10. But every object had to be different. So example, if i took a picture of a pencil for 1, than I had to do something different for 2 something like 2 erasers or things like them and just keep on going until to 10. This was very fun then what I thought it would be.

Going back to K1 felt very weird even though we were K1 like 6 years ago. When we went there, I was like thinking, ‘ Why are we hear?’. And then Ms. Angela’s voice turned to a kindergarten teacher. It was a bit weird because we were like learning something easier than Grade 5 and I couldn’t believe that now I have learned more and could feel the difference between K1 and Grade 5. It’s was actually fun going back to K1 and experiencing what we learned in K1. Through this, I could feel that I improved and learned a lot!

Exhibition Reflection

Last week on Thursday, we had our exhibition the whole day.  Through out our exhibition, we have noticed that people who were young weren't really interested in it, it was mostly adults who were interested in our booth.  Some gave us questions that we never really thought about, and some gave us suggestions for our action.

I think our presentation was good! But I think we could have done better on Tuesday. We were a bit shy and not really explained the whole thing even though there were some that we still had to explain. But it's good that we did get to improve on Thursday while so many schools came to visit our exhibition. I was thinking that adults would be interested then kids because young kids won't really understand it and they won't care about even though it's a problem. But adults do know that this is a serious problem going around the world. And as I predicted mostly the adults came to our booth to see our project.

Our Central Idea was, " We have the Power to Change People's Attitudes towards Gender Identities".s
Our action was to change the bathroom signs in UNIS that we thought were gender stereotyping.
We tried to come up with our own icons that were not gender stereotyping. But it was actually hard to come up with icons that didn't have stereotyping.  So we did come up with our own icon, but the problem is that people who don't speak English won't understand. Because our icon use the letter 'W', 'M'. But it didn't really didn't matter if we were going to use it in UNIS because we all learn English. But maybe in the future, if all the bathrooms signs get changed, the one that we made will be a problem for people who don't speak English.

I really feel proud about how we did, but there's still a long way to go make this action happen. I'm kind of worried if we can success and end this action but even though we don't finish this action, I will still think that this was like a very good experience.
I have never actually thought about presenting in front of the head of school team, contacting other businesses, and trying to change the bathroom signs in UNIS.
This was a very good experience I had through out exhibition, and it was very fun and amazing PYPX!

Grade 4&5 Concert

Grade 4&5 Concert Response Writing

Our Grade 4&5 concert was on March 15. It started at 9:00 am and finished around 10:00 am. While I was waiting, I  could see the Grade 4 sining very joyfully! This concert was so better than last year! Throughout the concert, everybody was smiling very bright. So if I describe it in a color, it was a bright yellow concert! Overall, I thought the concert was very unforgettable and unforgettable concert because it was my birthday!

First there was the Grade 5 Band playing. They were the first ones to start the concert!! They were all playing in Unison and even though some people made mistakes, they just kept on going. The band played ‘Let’s Rock’ and ‘Mickey Mouse March’. It was so outstanding!When I was watching the bands through the screen I felt very Exciting because I was very excited to hear the songs and also I was thinking they were so awesome!!

Second, there was the violin duet which was me and Talya! We were one of the advanced strings. We played the song ‘Fiddle Time’ as our duet. I was a bit surprised that Talya made a mistake in the middle that she didn’t make when we were practicing in the rehearsal! Before I got on my stage for my duet, I felt so nervous because there were so many eyes watching me!!! But I did feel a bit excited because I got to do a duet on my  birthday and it’s very unlikely to happen!

Lastly, all the Grade 4&5 singed a great song called ‘Have You Ever Seen the Rain’ for the finale! This was like the brightest and the happiest song we sang on stage. Everyone was smiling and I thought that everyone’s tedious faces were gone!
I thought the concert was so fast and it was so fantastic!

Overall, I thought the concert was very fun and unforgettable concert!

This is a response to Grade 4&5 Concert.
The purpose of the response is to retell and judge.
One thing I did well in this writing was telling what things happened in the concert like this that happened that didn't happen when we practiced and etc..
One thing I would change is to use more better words than fun, boring, sad.

Discussion Writing: Which is Better Short Hair or Long Hair?

Which is Better Short Hair or Long Hair?

People have many different hair styles all over the world.
People’s different hair styles shows how they look like, and people get interest in it.
Some people think that short hair is the best but, some people think that long
hair is better.

Some people says short hair is better because it’s easy to dry your hair
and to keep it nice.  Because long hair takes time to dry your hair but
short hair doesn’t.
And also people who have long hair uses more shampoo than the people
who have short hair.
So people who have short hair doesn’t
ran out of shampoo faster than the others.
Another reason is that it is easy to get your hair good again.
This might not make sense but, just imagine that your hair is very long and you
just dyed your hair and your hair is in a very bad condition now.
People who have long hairs will take some time or even longer to
get it back good
again because you have to cut it until the bad hair is all gone.
But short hairs will get their nice hair back quickly.

On the other hand, some people think that long hair is better than short hair is
better because they can do many hairstyle that short hairs can’t do.
Example,  you have a very short hair and you have to go to work every day.
It might be boring if you do the same hairstyle everyday or for a whole year.  
But if you have a long hair you can do many different hair styles!
The second reason is that too short hairs are very hard to tie your hair,
but long hairs are easier to tie.
Just imagine that you are eating a soup.  Our parents always says to tie our
hairs because they don’t want our hairs to go in soup. So they always reminds us.
And people who have very short hairs like coming up to your ears(or a bit below), it will be very hard
to tie your hairs because it will be sliding down every second. But if you have long hairs, it will be easier to tie
your hair.

People all have different opinions and there is no answer to it.
People have different perspective and different opinions, there is no right or wrong to this question.
Some people might say short hair is better, but some people might say long hair is much more better.
Well I think that long hair is better. Because you can do many different hair styles
that short hairs can’t do at all.

So I like long hairs better than short hairs.

Fractions Dos and Don'ts

When you add or subtract fractions, you have to be careful of some things when you are adding or subtracting them.
People are not being careful about these rules and they get the wrong answer. I'll tell you the Dos and Don'ts when you add or subtract fractions.

1. When you are adding or subtracting fractions, you have to make the denominator same. So it will be a lot easier. But if the question already has the same denominators, you don't have to make them same again.

2. When you are making the denominators same, you have to also multiply the numerators too. I don't understand why we have to multiply the numerators when we are making the denominator same.

1. Don't ADD Denominators or  when you're solving the question. If you add denominators, you'll get the  wrong answer.
2. Don't SUBTRACT denominators when you are subtracting fractions. If you do, you'll get the wrong answer.

If you are not being careful of adding or subtracting denominators, you might have a hard time in multiplying fractions or dividing fractions. In multiplying fractions you still have to make the same denominator, but if you just multiply them, you might get the wrong answer.
So be careful of the denominators!

Government Opinion

This week was a crazy week. I'll say it was wonky.
On Monday, we did a simulation about Monarchy.
On Tuesday, I simulated about Anarchy.
On Wednesday, I simulated Dictatorship.
On Thursday, I simulated Democracy.

I think that monarchy is the best one because, well anarchy was fun but if this was a real thing it will be a total disaster. Dictatorship will be hard and a bit annoying because you have to do everything that the leader says and you can't do what you want to do.
Democracy will be to annoying because the leader is keep on asking questions to you a lot.

My worst was dictatorship.  Because the leader doesn't even listen to the citizen's voices and just does what he/she wants to do. And we can't complain about something we don't like. Or else she/he will get very mad at me. So we have to do something even thought we don't want to do. And if this was real, my head would be exploding. And I would be very mad. But it was good that it was just only one day. If this was like a year or even more, I'll be tired, stressed out, And in the past, if this happened to people, I feel so bad for them. I think they are so great because they just had to listen to the leader without complaining. If I were I them, I couldn't do that. Well I could, but not to the end.

It was fun simulating this four different types of government.
I am guessing this is something about U.O.I. Because before we started migration unit, we also did a simulation too.
It was fun doing this and I hope this is the U.O.I unit.
