Personal project Reflection

June 18, 2018

Today I started my project. I am feeling proud of the work that I have finished in this lesson. I am looking forward to Presenting to the grade 1 and kg2 kids. I need to get thinking about how I am going to organize it for each kid to be able to write on each paper. I also need to start thing about what other things will I put on the paper. Another thin is that I also need to think how I am going to make it so it is not too hard for them. Overall today I am happy of what I have done in this period.

June 19, 2018

Today I learned that I need to think more about what the kids are comfortable more than what I know. Today I changed some of the papers because I realized that it was going to be to hard for the younger kids. Today I improved my thinking skills I was more focused and made important changes. Today I was also more focused than yesterday and managed to get more done.

Today I demonstrated the profile communicator because I learned to discover new and better ideas from people and the internet. I also demonstrated communicators because I helped other people in their projects and worked together to help each other. This is why I think that I have improved from yesterday.

June 20, 2018

Today I was challenged, The difficult thing that happened today was thinking of ideas for the papers. Another thing that was difficult today was trying to focus because it was very loud. The most enjoyable thin for me today was testing the questions and games with other people in my class because I got their feedback and that made my work way better.

By the end of the week I want to have prepared everything for the younger kids. By the end of the week I also want to have learned to accept ideas from all possible search items for example Ixl, teachers, students, and parents. all of these are places where i can get more ideas from That is what happened today. It was a very amazing day.

June 25, 2018

Today I added the last and final touches to my project. I first finished off all the posters and found all the books I want to take with me. Then I planned  the papers and the books for kg2  and grade 1.  I put the classes thing in different boxes. I also had to collect 20 papers for grade 1 and 18 papers for kg2. I had a choice of colored paper and plain white paper. I went with plain white paper for grade 1 and colored paper for kg2 because grade 1 are more responsible. After that I had to double check with teachers when I  can come in to their classroom to present. After  what I had done that my project was complete. Today was a  successful day.

Personal Project



My ideas are:

1: Science activities

2: Make some activities for the younger kids


My final decision is that I will… make some activities and give them to younger kids


My plan is to…  reflect on what I learned this year and make some activities and see what the younger kids know about these units.


I will keep my work / information…  a box in the classroom

Self Management Skills – Using large and small muscle skills effectively. Organization:. Time management. Safety. Healthy lifestyle. Appropriate behaviour. Making good choices.

Communication Skills – Listening. Speaking. Reading. Writing. Presenting.

Research Skills – Asking questions. Observing. Planning. Collecting & recording data/information by drawing, note taking, making charts, writing etc. Organizing information. Making conclusions.


Children Rights

This unit was all about children rights. A right is something that all children all adults should have. For example of a right that children  should have is the right to be free and safe with a family. If a child does not have this right that is called a denied right.

In this unit we had a project were we had to chose a person that had denied rights or someone that was helping with the denied rights. I was Salva Dut . Salva Dut is an 11 year old boy that got lost from his family for 19 year but he is now the founder of water for Southern Sudan. I chose him because he has an inspiring story and because the book that I had recently red was called ” A Long Walk to Water” was all about him.

After the project I now have a lot of stars and a few wishes some of the stars are I had a lot of facts to give about the character. Another star I have is that I spoke in aloud, clear and confident voice. One wish that I have is I wish that I could have made my speech a little longer. I also wish that I could have changed my pose because sometimes I forgot to say why the pose was like that.

in this unit I learned that some children get married off at a very young age. I also learned that every child should be treated equally.

If I were to do do it again I would Probably change my character because I noticed that I did not have much to research.

This project made me add Tab For a cause to my computer.

Now I have a question for you if you had to do my project what character would you choose.


Energy Unit 4

My bus is moving, well how is it moving? It is moving because it has energy, but not good energy. It uses Non-Renewable energy. It uses Fossil Fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. A bus uses oil to make it MOVE.

Renewable energy such as wind power, hydroelectric power, solar power, and geothermal are all considered Renewable recourses because they produce energy and do not pollute the planet.

Renewable and Non-Renewable energy both impact our planet differently. Most of our Non-Renewable energy sources pollute the planet while creating energy. Renewable energy on the other hand creates energy while not polluting the planet.

Although solar energy is good for the environment solar panels are very expensive and are inefficient because one solar panel can only light up one light bulb.

Here is a picture of me presenting my project at our energy summit.
Here is a picture with my friends Aiya and Areej is Sustainable city.

So which one will you choose Renewable or Non-Renewable energy

Persuasive Essay 2018


Are you sick of your parents bossing you around? Well show this to your parents so they can stop lying to you to do things, start being more organized about time management and mostly to stop using their phone.

Tick tock, I am late, should I tell you why I am late? Well because my parents were not organised about time management. It is very important that every parent should be organized about them and their kids time management. My first piece of evidence is that when kids grow up they almost always follow in their parents footsteps. So that means if your parents are not organized about time management it is most likely that you will not be organized about your time management. Another example is that kids can start becoming lazy. One time I had swim class that started at 4:15. At 3:55 my mom said that we have loads of time before you start swimming. Another piece of evidence is that kids will start leaving things to the last minute. Let’s think about homework. If kids need to bring back their homework on a Sunday they probably do it on Saturday. So that’s why all parents should be organized about them and their kids time management

Are you sick of your parents practically lying to you to do things, well I am for multiple reasons. My first piece of evidence is that kids can actually believe it and cry or get scared. I know this by personal experience. My mom had once told my sister when she was little that if she did not eat her vegetables she would lose all her toys and your siblings will never talk or play with you. In addition to this is when they grow up they might still believe in those which can also lead them to be scared about what they do. Something similar to this is that they might actually think that those things are real, and they will start to feel that they are forced to do those things. My mom had once told me that her friends mom told her children that if they wouldn’t clean their room people will start making fun of them and you will have bad luck. Until this day they still clean not only their room but their whole house. Surprisingly when they she came to my house she cleaned  our whole house. This is not a coincidence because she is my moms closest friend. So that’s what happens when your parents lie to you to do things.

Although parents should start being organized about time management and stop lying to their children to do things they should especially stop using their phone. They should stop using their phone because it will encourage kids to spend more time on their phone or devices. Especially when the parents tell their children to leave their phone at the dinner table and two minutes later the child sees its mom or dad glancing over at their phone and slowly picking it up, and finally after hours of sitting and staring on their phone they put it down.  Another piece of evidence is that they can get very distracted very easily which can lead to serious injury. It can also lead to sickness. This recently happened to my friend. Her mom said it was because she used her phone to much, and when I asked her why she used her phone to much she said that she tried to act like her mom. So parents you should always and I mean always spend less time on their phone.

Now that you know about the importance of a parents example to their children, then spread all the reasons to your friends and family for the hope of them setting a good example to their children. If you are a child show this to your parents. But if you are a parent remember this and know that your children want to copy you and if you do not set a good example your child will probably set a bad example to their children. Now go off child explore the world and remember even if your parents do not organize their time management better, lie to you, or maybe even use their phone to much you should always set a good example to everyone. So just imagine a perfect life when your young and older. So go ahead and set a good example to your children.


Maths Unit 4 Reflection

This math unit was about decimals. Decimals are fractions written in a different way. For example 3/100 is the same as 0.03. You may not believe it but o.o7 is the same as 0.70. Just because the 0 is at the end it does not mean that it is a larger number you are still saying that you have 7 tenths and 0 hundredths.

My favorite part about decimals was measuring in decimals and turning cm into mm.  If your pen was 3.3 cm it would be 33 mm. But just remember removing the decimal is not only the case.

We can also see decimals in money for example $2.20. In words that is two and twenty hundredths.

 At the beginning of this unit I thought that a decimal was the point in between the numbers. But now I know that they are fractions written in a different way. During this unit I learned that you can see decimals in a lot of places. I had once saw a decimal on one of my moms papers and on one of her shampoo bottles when they said that their as 1.8 ounces of product in the bottle. 

Now to prove that you have learned something which is bigger 3.50 or 3.5? I hope you learned something from this post. After this I dare you to go try decimals.

I Love Camelbak Water Bottles

“CRASH!” That is the sound of your water bottle breaking. You should try Camelbaks water bottles. They are amazing. I love Camelbak water bottles because, there are different types of them, they have good advertising, and they have a lot of sizes, let me tell you more.

Maybe I don’t want a water bottle that has a drinking hole. Or a twist cap. Well that is okay because Camelbak has a variety of different types of water bottles. For example, a straw, a drinking hole, a twist cap, and a leak proof water bottle of each one of those. As I am saying this I am realizing that I have a lot of choices to choose from and I always go for one of the straw ones that are leak proof, because personally those are my favorite so I always go for them. I remember when I had a different brand water bottle and they only had one type of water bottle which was a drinking hole,i got drenched in minutes. I know that it’s not my clumsiness because it happened to almost all of my friends. Personally I think that they can get very messy. I think that having different types of  water bottles are really important is because everyone is different and likes different things. I know that one of my friends loves Camelbaks drinking hole water bottles. I remember when me and my friend were about to start school and we needed to go shopping for school supplies. We went to millions of stores before we actually found a perfect water bottle. Most of the stores we went to only had one type of water bottles which was a twist cap. But that was not the case when I stumbled by Camelbak. I was amazed to see different types of water bottles. I was especially shocked to see they had a leak proof and a spill proof one. Now I realize that Camelbak has a larger variety of water bottles than I thought.

Now that you know that Camelbak has different types of water bottles, you should also know that they have good and honest advertising. My current water bottle from Camelbak has advertising all over the water bottle. Camelbak has many different suppliers one of them are eddy. It is very rare to find a Camelbak bottle without a supplier. But when they do they also advertise that company. They advertise it at the bottom of the water bottle. At the bottom of the water bottle it says Camelbak, and underneath it is their supplier. Why I love this is because it lets people know that their suppliers  also have good water bottles. When they have a supplier they will always put their logo. Unlike other water bottles they have advertising multiple times on the water bottle other water bottles have advertising one time on the water bottle. As I am thinking about this I am realizing that no one really pays attention to the advertising for the suppliers. But even if people don’t pay attention to the supplier advert. Camelbak still are honest and at least put the companies name and logo. That is why they have good and honest advertising.

Tall or short, Camelbak has got it all. Maybe you are looking for a tall water bottle, a short water bottle, or maybe even an exact 750ml water bottle. If you are a person that does not drink a lot of water you will like this. Camelbak sells a variety of water bottle sizes.If you do not drink a lot of water you can get their biggest size. 750ml and at the end of the day you can see how much you have drank. Why I find this useful, is because I live in Dubai, and in Dubai it is really hot, so I usually never even think about water. I just play and swim. It is not only useful to me but also useful to my mom because she can judge if I have drank a lot of water.  Either way tall and short water bottles are amazing.

Gulp! Gulp! I love drinking from my Camelbak water bottles because, they have a variety of different types of them, they have good and honest advertising and because they have a lot of sizes. I am 100% sure if you ever see me you will for sure see me drinking from my Camelbak water bottle, because I love Camelbak water bottles.

Reflecting on my Personal Inquiry Proect

Do you ever get confused between logos? Well one day I was looking at logos then vs now and I noticed how some logos are pretty similar. In my class we had an advertising project so I decided to do my project on how logos are similar and different. Although I worked alone I got a lot done in three periods ( 3 and a half hours)

I organized my project by making multiple venn diagrams comparing how their logos are similar and different. and another page of where I think they got their ideas from. Along the way I even created a theory which was that almost every pizza company uses the color of their ingredients in their logo.

The companies I compared were Coca cola, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Apple, Samsung, Twix, Galaxy, Maped, Crayola. What was  weird though is that I thought that some companies copied each other. Even though I worked alone I still think that I had good communication skills, because I asked people about their opinion. Then we had presenting. That was a bit tiering  just because I had so much to say.

Overall I think I would give myself a 9/10 job because I think if I would do it again I would probably make it a bit clearer to read because it was a bit messy. What would you do your project on?




This week we have been looking at adverts such as, TV ads, Print ads, and Radio ads.

*I leaned that there is a larger variety of different  adverts such as, billboards, posters, fliers and many more.

I want to know why adverts such as this on have such small writing?

i think advertising is important because without advertising people won know when you have invented something. For example if you are hosting a bake sale and everything costs 10AED no one will know to bring any money to buy anything and your bake sale will be a fail.

I want to share the advert that I disliked. I disliked it because the mans voice is very boring and it sounds like he does not want to be talking or doing the advert.  What do you think makes a good advert?

Click Here to view the advert that I dislike it is number one “Marmite Mondays”

A Great Innovation

Do you think a small sensor can help you potty  train an animal? I bet not but our central idea in UOI was The World Changes due to Natural Processes & Human Innovation. We learned…….

*Mountains will not last forever because of root wedging  and ice wedging.

*Sand is on the beach  because it gets eroded as it is in a river or a stream.

*What are Innovations and Innovators they are people that gather supplies that are already invented and create something new and useful.

  A piece of work that I want to share is my innovation. I chose this because I worked hard on thinking how it will work especially because people were asking me a lot of questions of how it will work. This is a sensor that I innovated for your newly adopted animals not to urinate in your house. My example that I am using is bags, you put the sensor  on the thing you do not want your animal to urinate on. The sensor can tell if it is a animal by the heat of their body. When the animal touches the bag a alarm will go off caring the animal away.


Do you still think a small sensor cant help you potty train a animal? Well I hope not, that is my innovation do you think that this will help YOU in your animal kingdom?????
