Where is your SUGAR?

December 8th, 2016 · No Comments · PE Health

In the past few weeks, we have been doing a project that includes Sugar-Free or No-Sugar week. This week was about having a week with little sugar (manmade, not natural) as possible or even no sugar in our foods we eat. The purpose was to know what nutrients each food have, and ow much of each food group we should eat more or less. Before the Sugar-Free week and after the Sugar-Free week was very different, having to take photos of each food we eat. It was different from snack all the way to dinner. We needed to find the “hidden” sugars, for example, glucose, which we learned about. Shopping was a great deal, as well as cooking it. When I first started it, it was exciting and was very looking forward to thins week. However, when the Sugar-Free week occurred, it was hard to take care of what I am eating, and what I should eat.

If we ever do this week again, I would change many things from what I did that week to meet a more HEALTHY CHOICE in my diet. I, personally will change how I am paying attention to the nutritions in each food. I usually didn’t even had a look at Nutrition Facts table on the package of the food. After the Sugar-Free week I noticed that I changed to looking at it carefully and deciding which company’s food is better. I think we need to change what we are eating as a family. During the Sugar-Free week, our family didn’t change their food pattern as I change mine. So I would like my family to look back at their food and find the most healthiest food they can find and eat them constantly. I think that the schools should change the drinks they sell in the cafeteria. Ice Tea, Juice, etc. has too much sugar in them, so I think they should be changed. I would prefer the foods in my home and in school should have low sugar, low sodium, low fat, low sodium, more vitamins, more minerals, etc.

My experience of Sugar Week was fantastic and challenging for me. Learning what are carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, vitamins, etc. and what is a healthy food and a healthy choice for ourselves were fun, but also challenging as well. We learned the change between having sugar everyday and having no sugar everyday. What surprised me is that even though the calories we consume is the same, we can have different weight and nutritions in our body. I learned that making fruits into juices and drinking them is not as good as eating them fresh without anything else. I am interested in how many people are paying attention to what they are eating and how the 7 days without sugar can change our lives.

The MYSTERIOUS Benedict Society

My favorite book that I have ever read is The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.  I enjoyed this satisfying book because there are tests, schools, people, and problems that are unimaginable!  There are secrets in every “adventure” that the main character, Reynie Muldoon and his friends gets, which they find it unexpectedly.  I like to guess about the secrets, before I read on to make my reading interesting.  I think people that likes mysteries, will most likely to be attached to this book.  In this book, when one problem gets unfolded, another problem occurs and gets unfolded again. So I think people who love mysteries will probably enjoy this book.

Planet x459 Last Week/Reflection

June 5th, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We were having problems about diseases during the week. we had a town meeting so that we can solve this problem. We came up with drinking the milk (the cure) in the same time. But the problem was that people were not donating the buckets to the people. If we want to get buckets in return we have to give them  one iron so that they can get the iron used for the bucket back. We were arguing about this so the teacher banned us from the planet.

Mr. Stadham help us come up with a solution to help us go in the planet again. Also we talked about other peoples opinion and try to solve the argument. The government is trying to find another problem so that we can go back to the planet and solve the problem.

Planet x459 Week 2

May 12th, 2015 · No Comments · Uncategorized

We have been having lots of problems about the rules. So Chief Choi and the councilors decided to meet with other classes and think of a way to fix the problem with the rules and the penalties. Now we are trying to make a constitution of Planet x459 to let the citizens have the same rules and penalties to not get confused of the rules.

Recently, I have been dying of hunger because people are stealing food. Also people have been breaking my house and if I build it again they break it again so I can’t finish my house to live and eat. I am planning on asking for help to finish building my house. I wish my house is finished quickly.

Planet x459 Week 1

February 3rd, 2015 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

We have been in the Planet x459 for a week. Our president is Chief Choi, we have elected her by voting. The councilors (Michelle, Patrick, and Leonor)and Chief Choi made laws and punishments for 4PR’s Awesome Village. Then the villagers ratified the constitution so that we all agree and follow the law that we made. The village is starting to have houses and farms.

There are plenty of water and wood but there are not enough food for everybody in the world to eat. So I suggest to share and trade foods with others. If this suggestion is not working, I will suggest that the farm should be shared with many people.

There is also some taxes where we have to pay every Tuesday. People were complaining about taxes but the councilors and Chief Choi made it better so they are not complaining now. The taxes are 2woods of any kind. I wish there was no more complaints about the taxes.
