SLC writing

As a writer, I’ve learned how to write a lead with an open question.

For example, My first draft didn’t start with an open question, but then I learned about it and used it in my final draft.

Another example, I usually started my lead a little boring, but then I did an open question lead and then the lead caught me and I wanted to read more myself so the open question hooks the reader.

After reflecting on my work in writing, I realize that sometimes with my lead I don’t really make it a little mysterious like make the readers guess what I’m talking about, like Arshi did, and then tell them what I’m talking about in the next paragraph.

This is my draft which I used the open question on.

Reading SLC

As a reader I have learned to keep jotting about main ideas, you find main ideas when the whole story is leading to something, and that something is a main idea. And also I learned to keep jotting about important facts.

For example, when ever I read and come across an important information, that’s only when I jot. To find important information like it has to be related to the topic and information people maybe don’t know.

Another example, when I read a non-fiction book about tigers, there were a lot of information for my topic, but I wanted the information that maybe people didn’t know and that’s important. 

After reflecting on my work in reading, I realize that I don’t really jot the names of my books in my reading log. So to fix that I’m gonna leave my reading log on my desk for reading before I forget to jot my book title.

  This is one of my books which I only jotted the important information about.

Student lead conference 

 Dear parents,

Thank you so much for coming to my student lead conference especially because you have to miss some work, but I’m glad you came.

So this past week I’ve been preparing for this student lead conference. I have made a continuum for my behaviour in school, a grit scale, and a science assessment on water hyacinths. I’ve noticed a difference between my first semester and now. What I noticed was that I’m more caring and think about people and their opinion.

In the grit survey I noticed again that I am caring and also that I’m a hard worker. I wasn’t a 1 or a 5. (1 is the lowest scale) (5 is the highest scale) I basically discovered that I am a caring person, and also I have a belonging need.

  And if you have any questions about my school life, well today your questions will be answered.



Tinker Time~

Today in tinker time I did a contest with Eva and Amelie of who can stay the longest in the front splits and then me Eva Amelie and Hana, well Hana wasn’t there but Hana is in the project, so we decided to make a movie about gymnastics and we were just about to add everyone’s name but then tinker time was over. The movie was gonna be about gymnastics like I said and about what we do in gymnastics so we have to film ourselves doing a gymnastics move we’ve been practicing and then once we’ve filmed ourselves enough then we will put the whole thing in our movie emailing who Evers iPad were using to make the movie and then we edit and were done. Next tinker time we will work on our movie and hope to get the clips at recess.

Tinker time!

Today in tinker time I played a new game in cards Called yawnoff and it was really fun and I could never stop doing it, but the bad thing is that I lost, even though I’m sad I shouldn’t be because it was so fun!!! And of course I played with my friend Emma, and also played with Adian and Ms. Liv.  

Winter break highlights 

I watched the new Star Wars movie and it was awesome and cool and really sad. I also coloured my hair and cut it and I loved it really changed me.And over my winter break I did a lot of water sports and it was awesome!! Like I did snorkelling and paddle board (etc.). And I also had a lot of new food like Sri Lankan food and traditional Maldives food. I really didn’t want to leave but knew that I had to for school so went back to Delhi.

Tinker time

Today in tinker time I decorated my Ranthambore journal so it doesn’t look so boaring like it did before I decorated it.

So I didn’t do origami or the gymnastics video, because two things, I’m already done with the gymnastics video with Eva,Hana, and Amelie. And the other thing is that I’m done with origami like I’m not going to do it now,so I decided to do my notebook and here it is.
