We have accomplished finishing our Elevator Pitch. We are now working on our videos. We have also met with our mentor again and we know what we will do when the day comes when he have to do our project. Our mentor gave us some very important tips. It seems like every week we get lots of things done every week.

I am feeling good about our actual project. We have even finished our Elevator Pitch. We have not started on the video. We will do that as soon as possible though. We made a We-Video on the Elevator Pitch. We are done working on that video.

For our next deadline on our timeline, we will finish our working on our Ted Talk that will take a while, We may not exactly be close, but we can still do it. Eito, my 20 % project partner, has helped me a lot.  Our project is going very well.Cardboard Bingo Number 20Leo Reynolds via Compfight

St. Patrick´s Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day BrickinNick (DarthNick) via Compfight 

I learned earlier today, the hard way, that you will get pinched if you don´t wear green. I don´t know why I am being pinched because the color of St. Patrick is not green, it is blue. Awhile ago, green became used as a symbol for Ireland. In Ireland, there is a lot rain, so the ‘Emerald Isle’ really is green all year-round. The green grass was  the inspiration for the whole green idea.

Almost There!

We have accomplished finishing our Elevator Pitch. We are now working on our videos. We have also met with our mentor again and we know what we will do when the day comes when he have to do our project. Our mentor gave us some very important tips.

I am feeling good about our actual project. We need to work on our Elevator pitch though. We have not started on the video. We will do that as soon as possible though. We will make a We-Video on the Elevator Pitch. We are working on that video now.

For our next deadline on our timeline, we will finish our video. We may not exactly be close, but we can still do it.

Our Accomplishments


We have accomplished a lot this Week. We finished our elevator pitch and we are almost done with our project, all we have to do is finish our elevator video, the pitch, teach our project, and do our Ted-Talk. We have done our Elevator pitch outline, we  have met with our mentor, we have all our things we need from our mentor, we even have the date we are presenting on! I am happy with my partner and I hope he is happy with the work I put in. Overall I am feeling really good about          our 20% project.

We will work on our video for our Elevator pitch and our video script because our Elevator pitch outline is done. We also plan to meet with our mentor on Tuesday to get all our items for our teaching on Wednesday. We have most of our things done that we need to be done. We have already met with our mentor twice so we already have everything worked out. Our mentor can’t come for the actual part we teach them japanese but he made a video introducing himself.

Overall I am feeling really good about our project so far. We have everything worked out with our mentor and we are signed up for our ted-talk in May. Our project is going a lot better than I thought it would be going and I am happy I have a good partner and I hope he feels the same. We work hard in class, Fridays, on our project and that is a reason we have so much done already. As I said earlier we are presenting on Wednesday and we will meet with our mentor on Thursday to get all the items.

It is That Time of the Year!

We all have that holiday when we don’t want the day to end, right? Well for me that day is Christmas. Christmas is the day our Lord was born, his name was Jesus. What he did for us was HUGE! He had to carry a cross up onto a big hill called Calvary, then he was nailed to the cross he brought up to release us from the sins and Satan, The Devil. This was only 1 of the major things he did for us. This is why we have a holiday for him. If you do not know what Christmas is, it is a day we honor him for what he did for us, and we get a lot of presents which is my favorite part. Sapin de Noël de Strasbourg Francis ROBERT via Compfight

I also like the music of Christmas. My favorite song is The 12 Days of Christmas. Jingle Bells is one of the most popular and just about everyone likes it, I am one of those people! There are many other good songs but these are the only 2 I will list. Christmas songs are all happy, none of them are supposed to be sad so if anytime you are sad when it is after Thanksgiving and before Christmas listen to these songs and you will find yourself singing along!

Christmas is on December 25th and you have to put up a Christmas tree before Christmas or it just wouldn’t be as fun. When you put up your tree you put little metal balls with color or decoration on the branches, we call them ornaments. No tree would be complete without the angel on top of it. When you put all these things on the tree it will look very good and it is a good way to spread the spirit around your family.

My Sporting Communites

As a kid I do sports outside of school. These include Basketball and Soccer. I play at Sports of All Sorts and a school team. For soccer I play for NKSA. I play these sports because I think they are fun, they keep me happy on Wednesdays and Tuesdays. They also let me think on what I need to do to get better at them, so I can open my mind. Lastly they let me go outside and practice and get exercise.

There are some pros and cons about my sports though. Soccer is the leading sport in concussions, basketball has many broken bones. But they both are always fun for me no matter what. They also cost a lot of money to play, but my mom deals with that stuff! Sports are a major part of how some places like schools make money. The athletes can go out and sell things for fundraisers, there parents pay for the sports, they also cost time and dedication to what ever sport you may play!

 

 

Stop This Madness!

 When I think of how unfair some things are in just makes me sad. Siberia and Iraq are always in war and the citizens are living in terrible conditions. So my problem is how bad the people of Siberia and Iraq are living. The leaders are terrible, the ground is terrible, the water is terrible, even the air is terrible! If this doesn’t make you mad or sad I don’t know what will. Even worse some citizens are getting SHOT by the soldiers in the wars, so they can’t even leave their house! And it’s not like their houses have anything entertaining to do.

If anything I would help the citizens living their because in paragraph 1 all the things I said about it. It´’s not just for 15 minutes they are like this it is ALL THE TIME! The soldiers are not that skilled and cause even more racket, so they cant even rely on their military! It is so frustrating that they have to do this all the time and they can’t afford anything for their children to play with so they only cry, and that by itself is a nightmare! The only thing we can do is Free Rice it will help them in hunger.
