My Reflection
I was learning to make a haiku. I had to do it about something in nature. So I did winter, because penguins and Snowman Steve*. I found this work tricky because how many words are there for ice? It was originally supposed to be about antartica, but people thought it was about winter so I just pretended it was about that all along. My next step is to create a detailed backstory for snowman steve. Oh yeah, and do a haiku about something I´ve never heard of.
*𝅘𝅥𝅮Snowman Steve, not a hat thief. He definitely owns that hat!𝅘𝅥𝅮 Mandarins

Personality Thing

My reflection
I´m not really sure what we were learning about this. Like, we were talking about how Meg in A Wrinkle In Time has a rebellious personality and Mrs Borcher (Google wanted to call her Mrs Scorcher) gave us this activity. I found this slightly tricky because I don´t like talking about my personality. It just seems kinda vain to me.

Auckland Skyline

My Reflection
We were learning to paint using different techniques. Maybe I should have learnt to draw first. Anyway, the process (The Calvin way)!:  
  1. Paint the sunset 
  2. Draw the skyline of Auckland on black paper. It is crucial that you do this badly.
  3. Cut out the skyline. This must also be done terribly.
  4. Sponge paint the water. Make sure the paper folds over and gets blue on your lovely sunset.
  5. Glue the skyline on to the paper so that all the tops of the buildings stick out.
  6. Upload!
This was actually quite easy though.
How to do it properly!

  1. Paint the sunset by mixing the colours: Orange, red and yellow
  2. Draw the skyline of Auckland on black paper. It's easier if you make the buildings very wide.
  3. Cut out the skyline. This is why it's easier if the building are very wide.
  4. Paint the water by dipping a small sponge in paint and squishing it against the paper.
  5. Glue the skyline onto the paper.
  6. You're done!

Anyway, my next step is to learn how to draw. And cut.


My Reflection
I was learning how to persuade people to believe my point of view and to speak confidently in front of an audience. I found this incredibly hard. It's just something about reading from a script that just makes me so nervous. I wonder what would have happened if I had just made it up as I went along. Probably an abomination of a speech. Hmm. You know what? That's my next step. CONTINUE THE PRODUCTION OF EXPERIMENTFRUITS*!

Imformation Report

My Reflection
We were learning about the issues that are harming our ocean (Oh my gosh! I could never had known that from the name of the slideshow!). I made this with a whole bunch of other people, as you can also see by the slide. My next step is to*... I dunno.
*This part of the reflection is so FRUSTRATING! There's usually not much else I can do to further this learning. Hmm... I wonder if I can put I dunno. Experiment! Experimentfruits!
