Managing Percy’s Emotions

What could Percy do to better manage his emotions?

Can you imagine having no control? Getting so mad that your brain clouds over, and all rational thought is gone? This might be a good description of how Percy feels. “Will you shut up!?!?!?!’ — it came out louder that I meant” This shows that sometimes he can’t control his actions when he is mad.

Percy’s teachers obviously don’t understand his problem. When Percy does something impulsively like “Finally, when our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot. I wasn’t even sure what it meant, but it sounded good.” Instead of helping him, they just give him detention or expel him. This might lead to Percy thinking that no one cares, which might lead to him just acting out more for attention.

It is okay for Percy to get overwhelmed, but there are better ways to calm yourself down and control yourself. Such as “Walk away, take some deep breaths or find an adult to talk to.” He can try to apply logic to understand his emotions, think before he acts. I think Percy could benefit from self-awareness. When he is about to get in a fight with Nancy Bobofit, Grover stops him, allowing him to stop and think of the consequences of his actions.

If Percy can stop and take a deep breath from time to time when he gets mad, it might help him control himself and think rationally. I also think Percy’s self-control would benefit from more positive relationships. He should talk to someone and tell them how he feels, so what happened with his English teacher won’t happen again.

Science Reflection

What is your biggest take away from 6th grade science?

My biggest takeaway is just that science isn’t as hard an complex as it seems. If you have a question there is a scientific answer that makes sense.

What would you like to work on for next year in science?

Next year I hope we do chemistry because that sounds so fun and interesting.

Our Stories Make History

Our Stories Make History unit was about recording our life during the COVID-19. This will be a topic studied in history books in a few years, so we have to record what it was like to be a part of this experience. I organized my project in a Sway document because it is simple and easy and it organizes work well. This might be useful to a historian so they know what it was like to be living through this pandemic. They get first hand knowledge of what’s going on.

 

Coronavirus Poem

Why?

 

these months have been the worst months ever

and tell me things will soon get better

cause they won’t

things like this don’t

not for a long time

I can’t think off anything that would rhyme

why can’t I just go home

I’m sick of everything being on chrome

my friends are all over

can’t this be over

crying five times a day

some of my friends are all on a beachy bay

why

why

why

Dear Abby, Character Conflict

Dear Abby,

The dance team list came out a couple days ago and believe it or not I got in! Even with all the abortion cramps and everything. This summer was complicated. But let’s not go into that.

Everything was pretty okay (other than the pain), until I found some letters in my stepdad’s drawer. They were about my sister. She died 5 years ago. All 5 of the cheer girls died in the span of like 2 weeks. I don’t know what to do now. They say she committed suicide. But she wouldn’t do that! She had so much planned in her life. I don’t know who to trust. What should I do? Everything is so confusing. I just wish it had never happened. All this has led me to never believe anyone. I just want my sister back. She would know what to do. I know it’s been 5 years, but I miss her so much.

From, Missing

Early Humans and Us Reflection

I feel that my research went quite well in this project, I was able to get many points of view on my topic and I used lots of resources. I feel that I should have put my points of view as well, and not just others. If I could do this all again, I would talk about my point of view and why I think that. I would also talk about how my point of view impacts my life.

Early Humans and Us

This is my ThingLink project about early humans and us. I did mine about diet. My research question was, could eating like early humans make us healthier?

Keep Your Coffee Warm

In science class we made a cup insulator.  My group’s cup insulator was made of mostly two types of blanket. It also has foam, velcro and string. I am proud of my groups collaboration, I think we work really well together. I would have probably changed a few things about the design, as ours worked, but not well.

Lucy’s Island

School is a plain because it seems to have no end and I long for something new.

Band is a mountain, a horrible climb that I wish I had never started.

My family is a valley because I am sheltered between two hills.

My thoughts are a river because they flow through my mind and never stop.

My worries are a volcano, waiting to explode out of me.

My friends are an oasis because they distract me and they save me from the claws of life.

Isolation is an island because it is separate from everything else.

My feelings are a forest reaching for the sun, waiting to be shown to the world.

Chinese is a desert, flat and boring.

The coast is drama because it is the interesting part of life. It is the beautiful part.

My life is the ocean, a never-ending journey that I wish I knew the end too.
