Something’s Cooking Up Here…

February 1st, 2019

My name is Robinson, and I’m thirteen. for my 7th grade one-day activity, I chose The Hutong. I Picked this one day activity because I like cooking, also because I live in a Hutong. i like cooking because its fun to combine two different flavors to make a completely different flavor. as a group, we decided that we would cook sichuan food. i chose sichuan because my mom was from that place, so i was interested in their cuisine.

reflection:

what did you do well?

I think we did the best on the cauliflower, because it tasted the best out of the three pieces of cooking we did.

what did you learn?

how to cook three dishes

what challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

the beef was too spicy, so i didn’t eat it.

why is one day important?

one day is important because it helps students explore interests and also, it lets us get out of school.

HOW I CAN BE KINDER:

Maybe i can be kinder by being more respectful to my friends, family, and peers.

Robinson’s Catch-All

November 9th, 2018

this is my catch-all. i plan for it to stay in my home, and hold my stuff, like pencils and my phone.

My biggest success was when the catch-all could hold very heavy things, like my computer, and not tip.

my biggest obstacle was when my platforms started to droop down at a angle, and some things slipped and fell. my solution wasto cut the end that stuck in at an angle, and so it didn’t tip as much.

This product addresses the needs of my client by making it customizable, and you can switch the platforms to wherever you want.

My humanities goal

November 8th, 2018

my goal is to read more complicated books, with more words. I mostly read comics, so i want to expand my interests. I want to do this mostly because i need to expand my vocabulary.

My humanities student as a learner goal

November 8th, 2018

My SAAL goal is to be more responsible. I sometimes forget my learning materials, and have to go back and get it. So my goal is to keep a mental checklist, and check off everything i have.

My ThingLink

This is my ThingLink on the Greek perspectives of everyday life. In it, i described a soldier’s family and how they saw the gods.

Robinson’s hero’s journey narrative

November 8th, 2018

The sword: a hero’s journey

This is my hero’s journey narrative. The story is about the Clumsy, the main character, felling the aftermath of the war he was never in. I had a lot of fun making it, and hope you do so too reading it.

safe and supportive learning environment

November 5th, 2018

I am helping by inviting new students to learn with me, and invite them to be friends with me, and by encouraging them and helping them to familiarize with the school, by showing them around and introducing them to my friends so they can help them too.

i can help better by encouraging students to follow those instructions, for example, i can remind someone to stop talking when we’re supposed to be listening.

FALL TRIP REFLECTION

September 25th, 2018

The highlight was going home because I was kinda homesick and wanted to see my family, and i was kind of underwhelmed by the trip, because i did those things a lot of times in chaoyang park

The challenge was surviving or doing the ladder thingamabob because I couldn’t lift myself up when we were on the 3rd log and relied on my friends to move up, but we ran out of time.

I collaborated when I helped and encouraged my friends on the courses, like when one of my friends were scared, we encouraged them by shouting stuff like “you can do it!”

My reflections

August 27th, 2018

1. Describe the activities/sports/clubs you are planning to participate in this trimester.

i am joining the clubs FPR (Futures Public Radio) which is a public broadcasting service, MUN (Model United Nations) which is debating, and roots and shoots which is environmental awareness.

2. How do you keep yourself organized?

i stay organized by keeping everything (folders, books, etc) either in my locker and/or in my bag, so i know where i put it and not lose it.
