Personal Project Reflection

June 18, 2018

Today I started my project.

I am feeling confident about my topic.  I feel that I made the right choice about teaching a class.  I am looking forward to watching how the students are like in the class and teaching them new things.  I am nervous if I do not gather enough information that I actually need.  I need to get my paper ready for when I will be keeping notes while watching the class learn.  I think I am going to be a great teacher to the students/children I will be teaching.

June 19,2018

Today, I learned that it is not easy to just go up to a teacher and ask her if you can teach a class. I had to do all sorts of things like finding the correct timing day, and what I shall teach to the students. I am changing because I never new that being independent is actually quite fun. I improved on my mini booklet/checklist that I started yesterday. It basically has a form of what the kids shall be able to do that I created. I made it to help me when I am watching the class, because I can quickly just fill out things like if they are concentrating, care about their work, or respecting the teacher. That way I will know how to treat the children in that class. I demonstrated self management because I was working independently and confident.

One of the most enjoyable things I did this lesson was when I was practicing to teach to the class.  Something challenging was when I was practicing and I was trying to explain it, because I found it to be a quite struggle to know what I will be saying. To improve that, I will keep practicing everyday to get better and better. By the end of the week,I am aiming to be done with the (KHDA) check, and the reflection for it. On the reflection I will write all about the behaviors of the different students and more information about my watch. Today was a good day. I was able to do all the things I needed to do.

June 25, 2018

Yesterday I could not do my blog since we were in a feild trip at the time of the blog post. So after that I continued my project.  Today I added the last touches of my project. First I finished off my poster. Then I started making flashcards with multiplication ecuations on the for the students to solve. I did not finish it yet, so when I reach home, I will finish my flashcards. Today was a good day because I did the work that I needed. Tomorrow I am aiming to teach class 2DO at 8:00. Then, at the end of the day, I will double check with Ms.Oselavin if tomorrow, 8:00AM is the time to teach. After that I will teach the class, then my project will be all finished.

June 26, 2018

Unfortunately, I couldn’t do the teaching today since the class I will be teaching had P.E that time. So I talked with the teacher and agreed that we shall change the dat to something like Wednesday. I am looking forword for the day I will teach because I have been practising and practising how my lesson would workout.

June 2018 Personal Project

JUNE 2018 PERSONAL PROJECT

 

My ideas are:

  1.  Writing a Persuasive Essay.
  2.  Learn another language.
  3.  Teach a class something.
  4.  Learn all about Ancient Egypt.
  5.  Work on some science projects.
  6.  Create a recipe book for people.

My final decision is that I will… teach a class something that they don’t know about. I want to do that because I really enjoy teaching.

My plan is to…  

Firstly, I will be going to some teachers to ask them what their students know and what he/she is teaching.

Next, I will email or talk to that teacher. I will email her/him about when I shall come to the class to listen and understand how they are.

After booking a class I will be like the (KHDA) and have a seat to see the childrens learning. I will be there for around 30 minutes to an hour to see what they already know,and what they dont know. That way,I will be inspired to know what I shall teach.

Soon, I will Teach the class that I feel confident in teaching about the topic that they seem interested in. I will then write notes about what the students learned in that lesson.

Lastly, I will gather up all the information about my lesson and project, then write it on a big poster.

I will keep my work / information on:

  • A clipboard while I am watching the class for 30 minutes to a hour.
  • A poster at the end with information just like what they did not know, and what they know now.

My final ‘product’ or my aim I am working to achieve is… to teach children/students information about things they like learning about.

Transdisciplinary Themes I am Working on:  

WHO WE ARE: beliefs & values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; cultures

HOW WE EXPRESS OURSELVES: expressing ideas; creativity; music, drama, art, writing, poetry.

HOW WE ORGANISE OURSELVES: Organization & communities; economic activities & trade.

Approaches to Learning I will Focus On:

Thinking Skills – Understanding. Using knowledge in new situations. Comparing & Contrasting. Creating, designing, or inventing. Expressing opinions. Making good decisions.

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’s Rights and Resposibiities

This month in U.O.I, we were learning all about children rights and responsibilities. A right is something that a person should have.  For example: Everyone should have the right to have a family. / In your case: Everyone should have a family. A responsibility is something you have to take care of. Just like your supplies.  

Weeks later,we had a project when we had to search up search up a refugee/poor person, or a charity helper. I was a woman named Maria Christina. I learned all about her. Like what happens in her life, how she got inspired to be a charity helper, and how she helps people.  It was pretty hard because it got a bit confusing. We were meant to keep notes and write our bibliography. At the end of getting all the details and researching, I was told that we were able to draw photos to help the audience the idea of what I am trying to explain.  It required a lot of work during the process. After I did everything I was meant to do, I practiced to a friend as if she was the real audience. On the last day, It was finally time to do the presentation. I waited for the people to come and watch my act. The reason why I am saying “act”, is because I was speaking in first person as if I was the real character. Many people came to my exhibition. I was impressed. Here is a video of my act:

My stars and wishes:                                                                                                                    Stars:                                                                                                                                                  – I was focused

– I did not go off topic

I tried my best

Wishes:

– For the exhibition to be a shorter time

– Add more details

An important thing that I learned this unit is that everybody should be treated the same way as everyone else. It is unfair if someone has more things than someone else.

Something that I did that was unique was getting a donation website and and pasting it into a paper. I made 47 mini copies of small paper with the website. The website basically has more details about Maria Christina, and some videos.

UOI Reflection

What is Energy? Are these words just stuck in your mind?  If they are, you are lucky you are reading this, because you will learn what energy is, and if you already know what energy is, you will probably learn even more information about it.

What is Energy?                                                                                                                             Energy is a power that allows objects to go, move, and even happen. Energy is all around you!                                                                                                                             

Different Types of Energy:

  • Human Energy
  • Biomass
  • Nuclear
  • Geothermal
  • Sound
  • Potential
  • Kinetic
  • Hydro Power
  • Solar
  • Renewable Energy
  • Nonrenewable Energy    

In U.O.I, we made posters, papers, and worksheets about Energy.  I had a lot, but my favorite was when we each chose a topic booklet.                                                                  To look at the book, CLICK HERE!

We also had a trip to Sustainable City. We learned about the different types of energy and how they work. My favorite thing we did was visiting the greenhouse, and learning about how they recycle things. I like it because I learned most about them rather than everything else we learned.  Here are some photos of my favoite things:

How they reuse things:

GreenHouse:

Thank you,

I hope you get a chance to visit Sustainable City somehow.

Learning About Decimals

Last month in math, we were learning all about decimals!

Decimals are numbers with a point to separate it from its fraction. When there is a fraction after the decimal point, the numbers keep going on and on. After the decimal point it starts off as. tenTHS, hundredTHS, thousandTHS, and so on.  For Example: 32.45 .  The value of the four stands for 4 tenTHS.(Or 0.4.) And the 5 stands for 5 hundredTHS.(Or 0.05)  Decimals are used in money, measurements, and also in your daily life.   

My friends and I have worked together to create a poster that is, ‘All About Decimals.’:

Before we learned about decimals, I thought they were just all about money. But now that I look back to what I thought earlier, decimals are more that just money. They are really important.

But I am still wondering if there are more decimals we use in life like, money measurements and , more.  Comment any questions you want to know about.

I love U.A.E!

Are you bored of staying in the same place for a long time? Well,the U.A.E is a place made just for you. I love the U.A.E because there are so many yummy traditional foods, it is a nature dream, and lastly there are so many entertaining places to visit.  So, are you already persuaded to go to the U.A.E? I don’t think so. That is why you should keep reading to find out more.

The first reason I love the U.A.E is because there are so many traditional foods to eat and drink.  Just like, Arabic Coffee, Luqaimat, and Dates. All of these treats are so delicious. I bet, as soon as you pick at least one of them off your plate, you will never regret leaving a single piece.  One day, at my school, there was a fun fair.  The people working at the fair, let us have a taste test of treats called, Luqaimat and Dates.  They fed the teachers the same thing, except they also gave them some Arabic Coffee.  We all seemed to enjoy the treats. I was so impressed on how good the treat tasted, that I couldn’t wait to get back home and ask my mom to buy me the treats from a market.

The second reason why I love the U.A.E is because it is a nature dream!  Just like the places called, Jebel Hafeet, (any) Desert, and The Dubai Safari. One day when I went to a desert with my friends and family, we had so much fun because we started climbing up hills, we competed in a race on who could get to the top first, and we were looking at different animals there. After a while we had a seat on a mattress that is made for the sand. We started eating some traditional foods, then went for a walk to explore the different animals in the desert.  My friend, brother and I found some camels that were camouflaging which made them pretty hard to see. We also saw, red ants, scorpions, and the creepy crawly lizards, which we ran away from.  After about 4 hours of the fun, sadly we had to go home.  As I am saying this, I have experienced so much, that I cannot wait to go next time!

The last reason why I love the U.A.E so much is because there are so many entertaining places to visit.  Just like, Burj Khalifa (Dubai), Yas Waterworld (Abu Dhabi), and obviously the 7 Emirates which are, Dubai, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah, and Fujairah. In 2017, I went with my friend to Ras Al Khaimah, we went to a hotel called Hilton Doubletree.  There were water slides, restaurants, and so many kind people.  We even met girls our age named Savannah who was (9), and Talulla who was (6). We went to a kids club together and we went to a big pool, then played underwater hide and seek. Soon we got a slushy for FREE! Now, our trip was just a 3-4 day trip.  So on the last day, we said bye to each other to go back home.

Again, I love the U.A.E so much because it has so much delicious traditional foods, it is a nature dream, and there are so many entertaining places to visit.  I bet you would be ready to pack up your bags to get yourself up in the air on your way to the U.A.E . Come to the U.A.E, and when you arrive you will never regret taking a step out of it.

My UOI Work

I have so much amazing UOI work on advertising. But my personal favourite is my advertisement for people to come to Starbucks. 

I like it the most, not because it was the last one, because it is perfect to my targeted audience.  The audience I made it for is, adults.  I showed that by adding in some dull and dark colours just like, olive green, blue, orange, black, peach, brown, gray, and lastly bronze and dark purple. 

It is also showing that it is for adults because it has a lot of writing, and only one photo which was the logo. So I am not sure kids would be attracted.  Then I put in a menu incase the adults get interested, and a ‘more info’ box on the bottom left corner of the page.

If I had more time I would fill up the spaces because now it just looks like it is unfinished.

I am sorry, but the slogan ‘A better treat makes a better day’, is really blurry.  Anyways, I have a task for you to do.  Do, you have any improvements?, or favorite parts?  Well, comment all about it down bellow.

-Thank you.

Maths Unit 3

Do you know what prime and composite numbers are?  Well neither did I until I started unit 3. This unit my classmates and I were learning what prime and composite numbers are.

What are prime numbers?                                                                                              Prime numbers are numbers that have no more than 2 factors, one and itself.  (Did You Know: Prime numbers are most likely to be odd!!) Here are some examples of prime numbers: 23, 5, 11, and 73.

What are composite numbers?                                                                                               Composite numbers are numbers that have more than to factors. But they don’t have to have a specific amount of factors. These are some composite numbers:12, 35,and  72.  (Did You Know: Again, Composite numbers are most likely to be even!!)

Here is a photo of a poster that me and my 2 friends  Aiya and Aleena made about math:

‘A U.A.S Experience’ – U.O.I Project

“Looking for a school in Dubai?, well ‘X’ marks the spot for you. Come to U.A.S where the future of learning never ends!”

Hello, my name is Sumaya, and I will be sharing with you my presentation I worked on in class with my friends, Aleena, Naveen, and Amirah.  Aleena and I were creating a banner to persuade children to come to U.A.S – Elementary. But Naveen and Amirah were cooperating together to make a banner for TEENS to come to High School in U.A.S. 

I think my group did pretty well because we were focussed on our topic, we had at least 4-5 things to share with others, and lastly…. we were creative on how we could design the poster so we could attract all people. 

When we started looking at other people’s projects once we were sharing, me and my group started talking about how we could improve by not having too much writing, and just a couple more pictures. 

When we were sharing our project we felt really proud of ourselves because we were able to answer every single question somebody asked us.

At the end of the day, I felt really proud of my group and I because in just 3/three days we created a banner with so much info and photos. Here is a photo of our banners.

 I am really sorry, but one of our teammates named Naveen was absent, which means she could not show up for the project.

The Wright Brothers – The Story

Today I am going to be talking about the Wright brothers. I will be telling you all about how the Wright Brothers have changed our world by explaining and putting in some photos of what they invented by teamwork.

First of all, I’m sure you are really confused on what I’m talking about. So here is where it all began:

In 1871 Orville Wright and his older brother Wilber Write, one day decided to invent the first ever plane! Everyone was so surprised of how it turned out. Here is a photo of the brothers plane:

Of course it is not as good as the planes we have now, but it was the best plane back in the day. They even got a RECORD!!!

then…

Years and years past by, sadly , Wilber Wright died in 1912, and younger brother Orville survived until 1948!

But here we are, we followed their path and made it to this. We try harder and harder until you reach your final goal! Thank the Wright Brothers, without them, we can’t even fly from one place to another! imagine you being stuck in one place your whole life!!!! Terrifying right?

In this post, the lesson was  for you to keep in mind,’ If they can do it, you can do it!’
