Hello internet! It has been a long time since the last time I blogged, I hope you are doing well! Just recently I finished a unit in maker called Witness to History. For that unit our driving question is: How can we, as photojournalists, tell stories of our community during this period of physical distancing? Well, my answer is us Photojournalists can tell stories of our community by interviewing people safely and really try to take the right photos and place them in the right order. The curriculum competencies are:
Be an Empowered Learner: How might I use technology to learn more? To answer the question, I might use technology to learn more by research articles and watching educational videos.
Be an Active Digital Citizen: How might I use technology to connect to the world? I might use technology connect the world by sharing informations and stories of other communities.
As it for our final product, it is our Photojournals you can check that our down below.
Hello internet, just this week my class finished a project called is the end of our world. During this project I learned how to use GarageBand more efficiently. For this project the driving question was: Who or what has challenged your worldview from the transition from elementary to high school?to answer the question our teacher a hit song from the 90s Is the End if My World as I Know It by R.E.M. and our teacher create a lyric templelt for us to field in to make or own lyrics.
To get ideas for our lyrics we created a MindNode bassed on our worldview using the 7 aspeccts of worldview. On the MindNode we had to write the expectation of high school which some ture out to be the opposite. here is a link to my MindNode. moving on to the next big milestone – milestone three – where we record our songs. I had a bit of diffricuties keeping up with the song’s tempo since my lyrics are quite squeezed in together. Some thing I would improve next time is definitely to count the syllabus of the word before writing them down. Here is a video for my individual song.
I know is kind of bad but luckily when we are doing the peer critique we could chose the persons we are comfortable to let them listen to you song, and of course, I choose one of my best friends- Annie! The very next day we were assigned to our groups, I was in a group with Ryan and Nya, go check out their blog and recent posts, we mixed up our lyrics together and we put our best parts into the song. We also had to have photos of us in grade 7 to grade 8/now here the video.
Create: What literacy skills am I using to write, speak, and represent in the texts I create?
Cause and Consequence: Who or what influenced events to occur and what were the consequences of those events?
was our curriculum competencies! Which was pretty mind blowing.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, see you soon.
Hello internet, about two weeks ago, on an sunny yet chilly Saturday, the DI regionals is held in Seycove! I was so excited but also very nervous at the same time. Finally is 2:20pm, my group’s challenge time, after a ton of rehearsals we are ready to go, but still very nervous. 8 minutes later, the challenge is done and it surprisingly went… well! Our classmates loved it our teacher loved it, it went smoothly except that the flag didn’t really stand when we’re presenting.
Any ways, going back 1 month, was when we first met our groups and we know what categories we were assigned in. I was in Fine Arts – picture this! – with four other people – Erin, Logan, Dries, and Josh, check out their blog and their most recent posts! – one of the important thing our group first did was identifying and understanding the Challenge requirements as outlined in our challenge document, I was the DRI of the time choice elements which one of the most important part our presentation later. Right after we finished our first milestone for this project the teachers assigned the next, milestone two, where we map out a plan for the challenge and where we find a picture for our solution. Here is a picture of it!
To move on faster, we started milestone three, where we assign roles and responsibilities to each other, I was the DRI of the team choice element 1, we fist decided that a rocket was a good idea which later at the regionals we notice that the rocket was too small of a prop to be the team choice element. What hing the other fine arts team present, all of them doesn’t have cool cardboard costumes like our team so we decided that our team choice element is coming to be our costumes. Last but not least, milestone four! Milestone four is where we plan out the time of how long it will take us to do something. Since Im the DRI of the rocket (because we didn’t know we would be changing the team choice element to our costumes at that point) I planed that it would take us at least 30-60 minutes which it didn’t, the rocket toke us about 20-25 minutes.
Next was building time, I spent 1-3 hours, on average, after school working on our DI stuff. I didn’t have much pictures of us building but here’s some.
On the last Friday, we were so nervous, spent at least an hour on DI after school. The next day our flag wasn’t working, we started to panicking but according to my friends, classmates and teachers we did great! So here is a video of our presentation!
Is getting close to the time when Jesus is born, and that means… is Christmas🎄! When you ask a little child: “Buddy, what holiday or time of the year do you like the most?” They ether might say “my birthday” or 90% says… “Christmas!”
For what I know families all around the world celebrates Christmas, is just that some country doesn’t celebrate it like what we do including decorating, having multiple gives, spent time with your whole family, when I was still living at China( if you don’t know that click here!) I loved Christmas even though I didn’t know the meaning of it, but do spent time with my whole family. Christmas is known to be celebrating the birth of Jesus(click here for solving your mysteries behind Christmas). Now I’m in Canada which make me know more about Christmas
now I want to share with your my Christmas photo!
This weekend I will be putting up the Christmas light and the Christmas tree, and I’m pretty sure that my brothers are doing secret Santa at school. Comment down below if i should decorate my room Christmas theme or not.
Now i have wrote a pome for you
“Is this time of the year when it snows,
it is the time of the year when happiness is found.
Run down the steps and you already know
below the shiny tree the presents you will see.
look out the window you will see, the snowy weather had just begun.”
any ways thats all for this week’s topic i hope you laughed a little at mr. Grinch, see you guys at next week’s Challenge!
the past two weeks my class did art for maker. It was so fun! My teacher Ms.Maxwell also introduced us to one of her kind friend Chloe, she is currently working as a graphic designer. The whole project was so fun for me because I love art, even though I didn’t have time to draw because of high school, but this project brought me back to art.
First of you need to know the driving question. For this unit of maker our driving question is: How can we use our Apple Pencil to support our learning? I think the Apple Pencil supports our learning because ,for example, in pages is easier to write notes if you have an Apple Pencil, you only have to tap the document once then is automatically lets you draw on the document! And same with notes! Another example is that the Apple Pencil has a pressure plate and when you are drawing if you press harder the line will get thicker. That’s why I think the Apple Pencil is helpful to our learning. People with an Apple Pencil will have more advantage than people without an Apple Pencil because is harder to draw with your finger than drawing with a pen or pencil.
now let’s talk a little bit about the first milestone we did for the project. The first milestone kind of got me into art again, and this milestone is called…… word art! So basically we had to draw our name depending on our personalities, and this is the one I did.
next milestone I wasn’t really into but it is called… sketch noting! We were given a link to a video on YouTube, the video is about growth mindset and fixed mindset. Even though the art part I didn’t really like I still kind of liked the video.
What do you think so far leave you thought in the comment section below! Milestone three! This milestone was awesome and this is…… self portrait! In this milestone we have to trace ourselves, the cool part is we could redo the background and the most awesome part is….. I will show you at the end, he he. Anyways I loved this milestone!
that one was real bad right, ya I know. Anyways next milestone! Milestone number four really show how good I’m at drawing, he he he. This milestone is called……. fruit bowl! Oh my, you do not know how much hours I spent on this one that it almost look real! I colour dropped every bits of the details on the fruits I will show you the final product and the process video of one grape.
final milestone! Milestone number five! This one out of all of the other ones is my favourite milestone, it is called…… your logo! We basically had to think of a company w might want to make some day in our life. I wanted to open a fashion, clothing and accessories store like Hot Topics there is a link for those of you who want to do some online shopping. 😉
Now what you guys are waiting for… I drew my teacher Ms. maxwell
My first task is to make a story with an emoji generator so here’s the story!
Once on the emoji planet, there is an very anxious emoji he gets anxious when he hears the saxophone, the trumpet and he doesn’t like watching plays nor drinking water! One day his Mr. Dragon caught him playing video games during class! Everyone was laughing at him, so he grabbed his lunch and ran out in the washrooms. Mr. Whale and Mr. Octopus the janitors heard the story and knew his condition so they felt bad for him. They walk into to the washrooms and gave him treats to comfort him. That afternoon the anxious emoji gave his treats to the sad cat. That night an unbelievable thing happened! The cat the anxious emoji gave treats to brought the princess emoji to his house! Soon he found out that the sad cat was lost and the cat was the princess’s pet! Not so long after the anxious emoji and the princess meet they fell in love. After they had married the anxious emoji isn’t anxious anymore.
I hope you did enjoy my story and now you will be guessing what the books or movies are with emoji!
1. Lion King
2. Charlottes Web
4. End Game
6. Toy Story
8. Jojo Rabbit
9. Star Wars
10. Beauty and The Beast
Moving on the the emoji math!
