For Chinese Studies I think I have learned a lot. Even though I came in the middle I am starting to get better and improve. I am very happy to learn. Learning Chinese is very fun. The problem is learning something totally new is hard. We have learneed clothing and the whether. My teacher is very nice and helps me to improve. I am happy to go to a school where there is Chinese.
Art has been hard for me. I am not that good of an artist, but it is fun to do. I have learned to draw apes and use my fingers to measure where to put things on my face such as eyes, ,mouths, etc. In the beginning its hard the you learn. My favorite thing so far is the G.A.P. which is the great ape portraits. We got a bunch of equipment, gel markers, chalk, oil pastels. We used them to create shades and made colorful apes. I enjoy doing any type of art.
Music has been amazing. I loved playing the xylophones. We most lessons listen to music and then comment on it depending how the different voices made a very interesting song. The song that we listened to was Wade In The Water. It was a sing used to tell the slaves when they escaped from their masters wade in the water to take away your scent. However that is false. We did things mostly related to our Civil War Unit. I love the class. Ms. Webster also tells us too go on Music Ace to practice our learning in music. It has been a very fun subject.
Physical education has been really fun. The first lesson we went roller-blading. It was nice to roll around. I haven't done that in a long time so it was fun. We also did gymnastics I was surprised that I could flip on the bars. We also did some exercises they were very fun but enjoyable. The best thing Mr. Billington said was to be safe when we did it.The P.E. class has been amazing and I really enjoy it.
For counseling we learned about the brain and how we learn differently. THe brain has to sides the left and the right. The right is how creative you are and the left is how you do in math and other mental things. It has been fun to learn what side of our brain was. I really like having to do counseling.
