In unit 5 of moral education, I learned that a stereotype is a judgement over a specific group of people. Here is an example: ” Girls only like the color pink.” or ” Boys hate playing with barbies.” Stereotypes are basically a saying that is not always true about something, someone or somewhere. I read a story about a lady who judged a guy who was sitting next to her in an airplane by his look and demanded a new seat. They were in economy class where the cheapest seats were. So, the flight attendant said that there was a vacant seat in first class. The lady thought that it was for her so she picked up her stuff and was about to go when the flight attendant said that the man sitting next to her was in a worse condition since he had burn marks and scars all over him and that he deserved the first class seat more. So the woman raged while the poor man got his well deserved seat. This was a good lesson for the woman who showed in-tolerance. If I was the woman I would have helped the man by giving him bandages and a bit of cash. That was my reflection on moral education today!
In unit 2 of math, I studied place value. I learned the 4 ways to write numbers, which are expanded form, word form, base ten form and number form. I also did a few activities in my math workbook and notebook which I will show in this post. The worksheets in the workbook were all about writing them in the 4 forms. I learned a lot from this unit and am looking forward to the next unit. This unit was good too but I preferred the geometry unit.
Here are the activities/worksheets that I did in class:
These are the place value practice sheets.
Here is a doc that includes my realistic fiction story. I am proud of it since it is a good quality story and has a good connection with my recent posts about respect and tolerance. I hope you enjoy!
I have worked really, really, really, really, really hard on this so please do not delete anything.
In this post I am going to show you some examples of these three words, [empathy, sympathy and compassion]. Please guess which is which. One word will not represent any of the pictures. Leave your guesses in the comments.
Samira is feeding an exhausted cat that has fatigue. What is this?
Yousef feels bad for this Nepalese woman that is weeping over her destroyed home. What is this?Saif is consoling his friend Mohammad who is crying since his dad is in the hospital. he shares with him his experience where his dad was in the hospital. What is this?
Here is the doc to the answers, please do not delete anything…or else!:

- Give them advice in certain situations/problems that they are in.
- Make them feel like they are important.
- Make them your friend.
- Always treat them like you want to be treated.
If you don’t know what tolerance is, then in this post I will be sharing the meaning of tolerance and in-tolerance and some examples of tolerance and in-tolerance. First of all, tolerance is when you show respect to people no matter how they look or even if they are different. An example of tolerance would be to play with people who have a different skin tone then you to be respectful and caring to somebody who might look odd to you because of a diagnosis they which they have. This is fine. You can be different because of a diagnosis or sickness that you have. It is up to other people to respect you. It is not your fault that you are different, in fact, everybody is different. In-tolerance is the exact opposite of tolerance. It means to judge people by their looks and make fun of them. This may not seem that bad for people who don’t have any diagnosis, but for people who do, this is just like bullying. It is especially annoying when you are being made fun of because of your look behind your back since you don’t know who is making fun of you, where they are making fun of you how they are making fun of you. Nobody wants this. We can stop this though! We just have to show respect and remember that being different is okay. Always be tolerant and never make fun of anyone.
This is a google doc about what I have done in U.O.I this unit. I have done many slides, innovations and more. Please do not delete anything…… or else!
Steven Paul Jobs:
At birth, Steven Paul Jobs (Steve Jobs) was left by his parents for adoption. He was then raised at the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1960’s. When he became a teenager he attended Reed College. Then, in 1972, before he dropped out, he planned a trip to India for 1974 to study Zen Buddhism. After that he founded Apple with a man named Wozniak in 1976 to sell Wozniak’s Apple 1 personal computer. A year later, they earned fame and wealth and made the Apple 2, one of the highly successful mass-produced computers. In 1985, Jobs was forced out of Apple. After that, he took some employees and founded NeXT which was a computer platform. In 1997 Apple merged with NeXT. Within a few months of the merger, Jobs became the CEO of his former company. Beggining in 1997, Jobs worked closely with designer Jonathan Ive to develop the Ipad, IPhone, App Store, IMac, ITunes and ITunes Store. In 2001, the Mac OS was replaced with the Mac OS X based on NeXT’s NeXTSTEP platform. Jobs was later diagnosised with Pancreatic Cancer in 2003 and died on October 5 in 2011. Which meant he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer for 8 years!
That was Steve Jobs’ life! Thank you!
In my first unit of inquiry, [U.O.I], I learned about systems. I learned that systems keep everything organized and in shape. Systems also give people orders and sometimes can even be laws. We also did a project about systems where we had to have a community with at least 3 systems. It was group work. Me and my group, which was Yoyo, Ahfaz, and me, made a great slide about our community. Which I will leave a link to and the end of this blog post along with my reflection on this unit. I had to reflect about the community that my group made up. We named our community DX Generation, which turned out to be a real name for wrestling duo! I really enjoyed our unit!
On national day, there was a really fun fair. I had a great time. The food there was great, especially Ice Lab. The games were fun too. All my friends went to the Big Baller, which was an obstacle course. I also played a short 20 minute soccer match with my friends. We also went to the field before the fair to run a few laps and explore. I wished that the fair was longer though. I did not really get the time to explore all the areas in the time I got. But I still had an amazing time there. What did everyone else think about the fair and the rest of national day.
