Here is a video of two of my friends and I singing "When You Believe", which is from the movie Aladdin. We take turns singing the verses, then we sing the chorus together. I sing the first verse, then Leilanie, then Olivia.
I had a great time working on the exhibition, even though it was tiring at times! But now that it is over, it is time to write a reflection!
I think one thing my group did well during the exhibition was being able to get people interested in our subject. We always answered people's questions, and got them interested by getting them to learn more about our problem, and action. I think we were also good at explaining to people about our action. Our action was to put our group's logo on the bins in the school, and we had a bin with our logo on it, so it was easy to explain.
Here is a photo of Daksha and I getting people interested in our group.
I think one thing I did well as an individual was getting people to play our game. When I was a guide, I asked the little kids if they wanted to play our game, and helped them with the answers to the questions. I also made sure that not too many people came to our stand, because then kids got upset that they could not all play the game. Phoebe also told kids about the game, and brought them over to our stand.
Here is a photo of me helping some K5 kids play our game.
One thing I think I could have done better on was telling people about the information we found out. I mostly talked about our action, and I think I could have explained a bit more about our information that we found out. If I was to do another big project like this, that is what I would work on.
Here is a person from the pink dolphins group talking to a person visiting their stand.
Here is the rubric I made and marked myself.
Hi people! Have you been wondering how the exhibition has been going so far? Read on to find out....
I am going to answer some questions that Andy assigned for us to answer. The first question is, "what have you done for your exhibition group so far?" We have been doing many things, but the latest thing we have done is start to put our logos on the bins in the school. We are about halfway. We have also been working hard to merge our concept questions together, for the real exhibition.
Next question.... "what do you still have to do?" Today Daksha and I started designing a game that we will let people play on the day of the exhibition. We plan to get together on Friday afternoon, and add the finishing touches to it (we are doing most of our work at school.) We also have to make a slide show to show to the people coming to the exhibition.
The next question is, "do you have any concerns about the exhibition?" I have to say, the only thing I am really concerned about is time. We currently only have 4 days in school to get everything sorted, and I am a bit worried about that!
Next question, "is there any area of the exhibition that you are really proud of?" For meI am really proud of the fact that we have started to put the logos around the bins in the school. I thought it would take much more organizing, and we got it done so quickly. That is what I am really proud of.
And the last question, "what will somebody learn when they come to your presentation next week?" They will learn about the process in putting the logos on the bins in the school. They will learn all the steps, and thing we had to do.
This week for the student blogging challenge, our challenge is to give tips for new bloggers, as well as what a good subject to write about is, and how to successfully blog.
I'm going to start with some tips for beginners. I think a great way to start blogging, is to write some things about you. It can be as simple as your likes and dislikes, hobbies, or even the pets you own. Just remember, never reveal your personal details, like your address, phone number, or full name. I also wrote a blog post about not putting your picture on your blog, which you can access here. Another tip is to remember that a blog is not a journal. Try not to overuse phrases like "and then I", or "so then."
To me a good blog subject is anything that will keep your reader interested. Try not to write too much about one thing, because it is likely that your reader will get bored. If a lot of things happen to me in one day, I try not to write a million blog posts about those things, but instead write one blog post about my day, explaining all of those things in it.
There are many ways to successfully blog, but to me the main one is to get someone to check your post for spelling errors. Don't you just hate it when you get to your favorite blog, but there are so many errors in the post you are reading? If the person is someone you know, or is in your class, offer to edit their post.
