Math reflection

Something we have done that I am proud of is learning habit, especially collaboration. Because, last year I worked with the same people and I didn’t really share my idea or answer to the class. But now, I really try to work with other people and to try to hear others thinking. Also, I try to share my ideas to the partner or to class.
Something that I feel very confident about in math class is algebra and solving positive and negative problem. Because I already studied and also, it is easy for me to do it.

This picture is the assessment about solving the positive and negative problem.

Something that has challenged me in class is to write a word problem. Because I was confused about the negative and positive sometimes and I sometimes had to use the word for example, debt, withdraw, and ect. So writing word problem is challenging to me sometimes.

This picture is that I wrote a word problem in the assessment.

 Reflections on my English language learning: Writing

What are you proud of with your writing right now? What are you proud that you can do as a writer?

 I’m proud that I am using more technical word, because in my first writing I think I didn’t use any of the technical words. Also, I am proud of my strong support I wrote for my claim, because there wasn’t any strong detail in my writing. And I have much organized paragraph than before. 

Now, compare an early piece of writing to a recent piece of writing. What do you notice about how your writing has changed in three areas: 

I think my writing has changed in vocabulary, strong support, and grammar. I have changed in my vocabulary by not many of the misspelling. Also, I have a strong support in my geography writing that I am writing these days. And I correct my grammar after I write and I check if this words fits into this sentence. 



If you had to pick one area of writing (Linguistic Complexity, Vocabulary Usage or Language Control) that you think you have improved on the most this quarter, what would it be? What makes you say this? 

I think I have improved in Linguistic Complexity. Because, I check after I am done with my writing, if it is well organized and clear to read. Also, in my geography project I have been using strong evidence that support my claim for example, using statistic, and the fact that is given in the book.

What area of writing (Linguistic Complexity, Vocabulary Usage or Language Control) would like to work on at this point?

I want to work on Language Control. Because I have many mistakes in my grammar. Also, I forget to use transitional words to connect the idea or start the new idea.

Reflections on my English language learning : Reading


  How many books have you read this quarter? What genre were they? What reading level were they? 

I have finished my first book and I started the new book yesterday. The first one was romance and now I am reading is realistic fiction. The reading level is just right for me.
What has been your favorite book that you have read so far this year? Why? 

My favorite book that I have read so far is ‘Me before you’, because it was the first time I read a romance book and it was fun but also a sad book and I like how the author really expressed really well of the character’s emotion.


How have you used your reading response log to write about your thinking about reading? 

     I have been summarizing the story what I read that day and wrote my feeling about the story what I read.

Copy and paste a sample of your first and most recent reading response entry below. Now, please compare them. What are you doing now with your responses that you were not doing before? 

First entry

Recent entry

I think it came more specific and more inferences and expressing my feelings.
What are some close reading strategies do you use when you read? How do they help you? What other classes can you use these strategies in? Give a specific example. 

Searching for the word that I don’t know. This helps me to build up more vocabulary to me, because if I don’t know the words and just skip it, I wouldn’t know if that word comes out again. Also, this strategies can help in science class about the term that I use in the unit.

What are you proud of with your reading? 

By the strategies that I used made me know more words. So I am proud of building new vocabulary words.        

What do you think you need to work on with your reading next semester? (be specific; give an example if you can): 

Note taking. Because I am not really doing enough of taking notes during the reading. For example when I note take I can express my feeling well and it could be easier to understand the book. So I want to work in that section.

My Science Lab Project – Reflection

In this Assesment, I wanted to show my understanding about motion and speed. 

Also, I learned about acceleration, constant speed. I didn’t know what was acceleration was, but now I know really many about it. For example, I learned that has acceleration in the graph is suddenly going high because it’s accelerating.

I didn’t had many challenge in this project. Because I think it was pretty easy to do it.

I will do the steps differently when I do the next experiment because this experiment our group just started to do the project and not planning what to do so I will plan first at the next experiment.
