I am really enjoying, “Touching Spirit Bear” it has great details and explanations to imagine in my head. I think they have great characters and very unique characters. I think I understand books better if I can imagine them. If I can’t imagine them, for me there’s not much to remember. I think something I really enjoy in this book is the metaphor. I love metaphors because there are endless things they could represent. A book with this many metaphors and so much detail sure is the book for me. I relate to the book “Touching Spirit Bear” in a lot of ways, some are not so good relations but they count. One way is that when Cole gets mad and burns things and wants to destruct things, that reminds me of me. That sounds really creepy but really, when I get mad I want to destruct things. Of course its kind of hard with two sisters around me 24/7… which is half the reason I want to destruct things. I want to destruct things, like Cole, when I get mad. I of course don’t although Cole does. I want to and Cole probably still wants to even now that he is “done with his anger”. That is another way I relate although I’m not very angry, “anger is never forgotten”, and that is for me, my anger is never forgotten. I’m like Cole I want my anger to be forgotten but really I can’t have it forgotten. I can relate to a lot of things in this book. I now I can’t wait to talk with our global classroom this Week, for a great time to hang out and instead of talking on Skype we are meeting somewhere to actually talk with no devices or anything. We will meet together and play along with read of course and get treats. I think it is a great bonus to reading this excellent book.
This is my spirit bear, to me the spirit bear is what drives me, the spirit bear represents my engine. In the drawing it shows everything that I love. Now I will explain why...
The bridge with water is the white rock pier because that is where I was baptized and for me being baptized is a very special thing, when I was baptized the ocean was full of people wanting to be baptized and now its empty in my picture because it was freezing cold when I was in the water so everyone rushed out. It's funny because no matter how cold it is if you've signed up your serious about so no one will back out.
The camera is because I LOVE to take pictures with my sisters and make creative poses and picture, to calm me down I go outside and take pictures.
The hearts (there are two) is for all the people in my life that I love because they have fully changed my life.
The music notes because it's kind of obvious I like listening to music, but not just that I also love playing piano, and the steel drums.
The tree represents a couple things, because I LOVE!!!!!!! to climb, I also love the tree swing by my house, it also represents my family (family tree).
The weirdly shaped thing, is a knot that represents my love for rock climbing because rock climbing is AWESOME!
The pattern represents a quilt because I love sewing.
Hope you like my spirit bear and comment below to tell me what drives you and what you love.
Dear, Teachers at Kalamak Indian Residential School
The teachers at your school are far too strict. You guys strap the students for talking in class and that’s just one stupid reason. I think you teachers should start telling them what they did wrong and maybe give detention, time out, or a different way of discipline but not the strap or starving the kids. You teachers are scaring the kids just to get them to stop something; you said that if they get out of bed at night the devils are waiting under their bed to grab their feet. Which I hope you know is not true. You lady’s should just tell them “we don’t want you out of bed at night or you well get a detention or something else” but don’t tell them there are devils under their bed waiting to grab their feet and bring them “down” to the place where devils are. You said that! You are also changing the children’s opinions on things, you even confuse them and change their names! You are even giving the numbers to wear and be called by. This school needs to change. You could for starters start calling them by their real name. Also this school feeds the teachers delicious ham, bacon and sometimes chicken and you know it, you’re feeding the kids, gross, cold, mush. Sometimes for discipline you make them wear signs on their shirt saying; “I am a dirty wet bed” or something else that is super mean. The teachers at Kalamak Indian Residential School need to learn how to discipline, feed children, and stop assimilating the children.
Who has terrible writing? Me! I hate it but I do, I have to explain what some of the words are. I practice and it gets better but I always want to write faster which makes terrible writing. I need to persevere over this obstacle so I don't need to explain it and so I don't get my feelings hurt more than I already have. To get better writing t my original answer would be practise but practise does nothing, my answer would be slow down and take my time while writing.
I am most proud of my working with others and my big projects that I have done such as
biome's and my movie trailer. I worked the hardest when I was doodling and doing what worked best for me also I when I had good days where I was focused. My behaviour this term was happy and focused but sometimes I was sad and staring into space. The favourite thing I learned was the four principles I learned in art, learning about global read aloud and learning about Carley's life. This is because from the art I can now point out the principles of art, learning/relearning about global read aloud was so fun because I got to blog and read. Learning about Carley's life is me pretty much saying I LOVE "ONE FOR THE MURPHY'S"!! I enjoyed reading it during global read aloud so much that it was one of my favourite things to learn. On a whole I have been coming to class very much prepared because I love school... so why wouldn't i come prepared! Three things I need to do better is not get distracted and doodle to much and I need to practice my math more and more, last but not least I need to work hard and finish my homework %100 of the time. I think I am a good classmate and that is because I love helping, doing work and I happy a lot. One thing I want to do to be a better classmate is not get distracted, be happier and learn to work well with other types of people ( e.g., unfocused ). I expect on my report card, to see sage is a good classmate to others an enjoys helping others. Three smart goals are be even more helpful, do my homework %100 of the time and don't get distracted.
I have achieved a lot of goals in the past and one of them was to finish my homework 95% of the time and I would go home put my bag down and do my homework straight away. Another goal I had was to do a one handed back hand spring on the trampoline broken finger.( see personal blog)
I did achieve my goal I did my homework even more than 95% my only difficulty was that I got busy a lot so i might of had to wake up earlier to finish my homework, most of the time I finished it the day before though, and for my goal of doing a one handed back hand spring, I don't know, I am doing it but it's more of a back flip with one hand down.
I knew I had achieved my goal on doing my homework 95%, when the end of the year came and I got a good report card, and I know I kinda did the hand spring because my sister, mom and I thought it wasn't bad.
You want to reach me do you? You want to get in my brain and teach me how to learn. No no no I will learn myself, you can help, but I learn my own way. I enjoy sports especially rock climbing if you link what we are learning to rock climbing or sports I will be the perfect student, Another thing if you let me doodle while listening to you, boy will I be good. If you link music to learning I'll be sugar to your tea. You want to reach me? Get in my brain, well you can reach me if you link those things to your teaching. I f you let me learn the way I want I will be working very good.
