I did well in my introduction paragraph, and using specific vocabulary throughout my essay . I would like to improve in writing my conclusion paragraph. There are a few areas that I marked different from Ms.Rivera, I thought the evidence and information I gave was not strong enough to support the claims. The biggest challenge that I faced throughout the essay was researching, because there wasn’t a lot of strong evidence and information on the topic I was writing about. To solve this problem I tried to find some websites I’ve used while the debate.
In the book “Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief”, Percy Jackson was making many decisions.One of the decision he made on page 3, was when Nancy Bobofit was throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in Grover’s hair. He just got so mad and said:
“I’m going to kill her!” I mumbled
Grover tried to calm me down. “It’s ok. Like peanut butter.”
He dodged another piece of Nancy’s lunch.
“That’s it.” I started to get up , but Grover pulled me back to my seat.
“you’re already on probation,” He remined me .You know who will get blamed if anything happened.”
From this text in the Percy Jackson book we can see that Percy can’t control his anger, he wasn’t using the right words. This choice has a big impact on his community, he was already in probation. If Grover couldn’t stop him, he will get in another problem. Referring to the article “Recognizing and Managing Emotions” from the website www.skillsyouneed.com , he is making decisions with emotions. He could combine his emotional response with more rational considerations, examples like “stop before you decide, to give yourself a chance to think” or “ consider what might happen as a result, and how your decision might affect others”. I think these are really good strategies for Per Jackson when he is emotional, and he could change using these strategies.
Another decision Percy Jackson made was on page 29, where Percy ditched Grover when they got to the bus terminal, because Grover was freaking him out. He was not caring about others; he just made the decision. One of the strategies he could have used from “Having good friends can improve our wellbeing, especially during the holidays ” by Washington post, adapted by Newsela was to write a letter. Maybe Percy doesn’t want to talk face-to-face, he could write an letter.Making good decisions are hard but we can try to change with these great strategies from these articles.
In Percy Jackson and the Lightening thief, Percy is very Stubborn.Percy knew his mom didn’t want to go with him and he is still telling her mom to come, and he is not listening until his mom came. On page 48 and 49 the book says, “That’s the property line,” my mom said. “Get over that hill and you’ll see a big farmhouse down in the valley. Run and don’t look back. Yell for help. Don’t stop until you reach the door.”“Mom you’re coming too.”“No!” I shouted. You are coming with me. Help me with Grover.”
The author writes “mom you’re coming too.” Symbolizes Percy isn’t going to leave without his mom and needs her to come with him, where his mom couldn’t come. This shows that he is stubborn and strong-willed.
In Percy Jackson and the Lightening thief, Percy is short tempered.Nancy Bobofit was throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in Grover’s hair. Percy got mad immediately.”I’m going to kill her,” I mumbled.Grover tried to calm me down.He dodged another piece of Nancy ‘s lunch.“That’s it.” I started to get up, but Grover pulled me back to my seat.” This is a passage from page 3, on the book.
This conversation from “Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief” shows that Percy has a short temper, and he couldn’t calm down. Hence the words, “I’m going to kill her” this shows that Percy is angry.He couldn’t control his anger.
I think I’ve learned many things in science class, even though I am new. I think I learned lots about the ecosystem and habitat, this unit was my favorite.If I was giving a comment on the report card to my self, I would say try to be more confident and ask more questions. I am not really that confident on making models in science, analyzing data, and constructing scientific explanations. I would like to learn about animals or plants next year.
This project is called Our Stories Make History, it’s about what we learned in this unit and what we’ve been through the coronavirus period. I made a thing link for this project, I made tag for each assignment. I’ve also made a tag for a explaining what each tag is.I think this primary source is will be helpful to a historian or future 6th graders, in the future, because they would know what we’ learn during this coronavirus time staying in home.I think everything went well in this unit, I found that looking for sources that are trustworthy was challenging
