I think that it was really brave of Misty to go all the way to ABT and perform/practice, especially since she had a different skin color. That must of took a lot of effort and hard work! Plus, when she hurt her back it must of hurt a lot, but she still continued. That must of been brave too! I felt good for her that she made it and got promoted, and she is still helping other children dance. I really liked that story!
When Grace Lin first came in the library, I thought: “I have read her books, and they are really good!”, so when she did the act with the six suns and the powerful hunter, I knew it was a story that Madame Chang told Rendi while he stayed at that hotel. I also know that when she later said that the tiger is good and bad, I knew from in one story that Madame Chang told that the powerful hunter that shot down the five suns once was a tiger that the village gave a baby rabbit to take care of and that tiger turned back into that powerful hunter. It was good to know what she really was talking about, and I really like her books! Also, when she started speaking Chinese to the class I was really excited because I knew all those words that she said! It was the best visit ever, and I hope she can visit again!!!
When we started this project, I was very excited and nervous. What would I do? Will it be cool? What if I mess up? I million questions flooded my mind as I my topic: video games. At first My question was gonna be how video games evolved over the decades but after Ms. Edwards gave us a lesson I decided that my main inquiry question would be How have video games affected human lives and what can be improved. After that was done, I was relieved, but that relief didn’t last long. Soon, our five sub questions were due. I came up with three right away: How does it affect the brain, how does it affect the eyes, and does it improve hand-eye coordination. Then I added the questions: How do video games affect a child’s learning? and How do video games affect a child’s sleep? Then I went over all the questions and thought, those questions are too identical, so I changed them to: 1. How many minutes of video games does an average child play a day? 2. How do video games affect the eyes? 3. Do video games improve your hand-eye coordination? 4. How do video games affect a child’s learning? 5. Do video games affect a child’s sleep? after I got this done, saved, and double-checked, that was when I really felt like I was done with the questions. I wonder what I’ll do for my answers……
Today we were supposed to choose a topic to write about. There were SO many possibilities! I could do aero dynamics, roller coasters, video games, and so much more! I was like, which one should I choose? I’ll do candy. No, that doesn’t sound right. I’ll about aero dynamics. No, that doesn’t sound right either. At the end I wound up choosing video games because it is interesting, I know a lot about it, I play it a lot, and when I present it to the other grades they’re probably going to crowd around my stand because everyone likes video games! I can’t wait to write about it!!
