Homework: Getting ahead

What can you do at home today to get ahead with your PYP Exhibition work? Do something that outs you further ahead with your work than you were when you left school today.
Make a comment to tell us:

  • What you did
  • Why you chose to do that
  • How you can prove that you did it

So… what are you waiting for?

    I made a list of my investigation of the poster. Because I want to see what people act infront of our poster and if they care or not.
    I can prove that by bringing my list.

      What do you mean by “my investigation of the poster”?

        March 23, 2011 at 6:18 pm

        It means that I have to find out other people’s perspective.

        • Mr. Sam
          March 23, 2011 at 7:21 pm

          How can you do that?

    I added more effect on my powerpoint to print out soon. I also list a list of common websites that people get addicted to.
    I did it because I need to create awareness and to make people amazed. I also got a list maybe to stick it on one of the fake laptops I made. (it was mr. Josh’s idea)
    I can prove that I did it by-
    Showing it to the class tomorrow
    being serious about it
    🙂 😀 😛

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:09 pm

      Sounds good, Pin. Do you have enough things to stick on the laptop screens now?

    I will take some photo for my story book, and I will bring and add at my story book tomorro.
    I choose to do that thing because my picture book really need it.
    I acn bring that tomorro and I think that can show I really did it.

    • Terrie
      March 23, 2011 at 3:53 pm

      Last line, I can bring to class tomorro.

        You mean tomorrow?

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:12 pm

      Are you using photos in your story book? I thought it was drawings.

    I added on my chemicals list and I did some of the Better Choices list; which is drawing and writind a couple of words.
    I chose to do this because I can finish it faster and I can get on with the major things tomorrow.
    I could bring in the work I did on sheets of paper.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:13 pm

      This sounds good. What are Anirudh and Pooja doing?

    I thought of more specific questions and I read through all the questions that I wrote down and change it into better questions.
    I chose to do this because its the questions I’m going to ask in the exhibition and I wanted to know if people are being themselves or not.
    I could bring the questions that I thought of today to school.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:14 pm

      Do you know how you will calculate the percentages?

        March 23, 2011 at 6:32 pm

        Yes, I post my comment in the other clog posting. (The clock is ticking)

    March 23, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    I didn’t bring my exhibition folder, but today I watched my survey and made a pie chart.
    I chose to make this because I need to make an infographic and pie chart is a part of the infographic.
    I send myself an email so I can show people.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:14 pm

      What data does the pie chart show?

      • YEACHAN
        March 24, 2011 at 3:06 pm

        The pie chart shows about the result of the survey.

  7. March 23, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    I’m videoing people who are doing something.
    I chose it because I need to collect who does make the most of the opportunities and who do not.
    I can prove it by a video camera from NIST.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:15 pm

      You are videoing those people at home?

      • March 28, 2011 at 4:44 pm

        Ya,my neighbors I mean

  8. March 23, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Plus I have to memorize the negative quote

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:15 pm

      Type the quotes on here to help you memorize them.

      • March 28, 2011 at 4:41 pm

        The negative quote is “If you wait for opportunities to occur then you will be one of the crowd.” By Edward de Bono

    I am drawing 4 characters for the comic strips.I am also writing down what the story will be like.
    I choose it because i it is my next step for my comic strips.
    I can prove it by bring the work to school.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:16 pm

      You should make sure you finish doing those things, you’ll give yourself a real head-start tomorrow.

    I proof read my writing for my book and edited it. I also added some other sentences that were needed for it to be more interesting. I also thought about the cover for my book and prepared for it my writing a some noted for the fonts or other small things and got a picture that was needed as part of a cover. I also had some small designs for the book just to be a little creative.

    I chose to do that so I could be able to work on it at school straight away. It’s also to do it now than doing it after. The faster I get it done, the more time I have left.

    Tomorrow I can show my story and how it was longer than before. Before it was only stories but sentences have been added about the ‘actions’. I will also bring in the small designs to show what I have been thinking on the visual and creative side, 🙂

    • Mr. Sam
      March 23, 2011 at 5:17 pm

      You should probably separate the story into chapters to make it more organized and easier to read.

      • Am
        March 23, 2011 at 5:21 pm

        I was also thinking of that idea. I would make a contents page and have the chapters in my story. I will prove it by showing my story like a quick scroll down infront of 6SS. I will also watch Ms. Cassie’s video that she sent me.

  11. March 23, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    What I do is that I took the flip camera home and I am going to interview my family. Besides, in the morning tomorrow, if it doesn’ rain, I wiil try to interview as many people as I can. But even if the battery is a huge problem, I will try to save it.

    I chose to do this because Michael’s house is far away from mines, we decided to do interviews throughout different perspectives and as other people and as many people as we can. I can also interview elders but if they’re annoyed I will just interview my friends. Mr. Sam said that the more people I interview and put it up together the more powerful it will be.

    How I can prove that is that I will bring the flip camera to school and show the videos that I got.

    Today I printed out my latest version of Mr. and Ms. Hydration to bring to school. I have chosen to do this because I can’t send the super hero to Mr. Sam so I am going to show it ti him on A4 piece of paper. To prove this I will bring the superheroes to school.

    Today I collected the top ten photos in our flikr acount. I have searched through all the photos(1674 and shortened it down to ten. I also have started my prezi presentation for the exhition.

    I have chose to get the pictures because I want to try and get them in the cafeteria this week so I will have to try to get them laminated and framed by friday. I have chose to do my prezi because I have to get it started on so that by next wednesday it needs to be perfect.

    I can prove I searched through the photos by showing Mr. Sam the photos I found the best. I can also show the prezi I made.

    Today me and Sebi started making a video on the field. Now that we are making the video at the field at NIST we can’t do it at home. So therefore there wasn’t really anything I could do but I sat down for a little while and just planned the video and how we could maybe make it a little bit better.
    I can prove this by showing the small little plan to Mr. Sam tommorow.

    Today me,Pimboon and Pooja started an infographic and I got the part where I had to make 700 cars. which I did not finish because the computer kept on hanging.

    At Home:
    I made my 700 cars now. Thanks to my brother he lend me his computer because the Microsoft on my home computer did not work. I choose it because I needed it for tomorrow because we need to finish the infographic quickly because the exhibition is next Wednesday. I can prove it by showing it to my group and asking it if was the same as before, and then I could prove it that I changed it and fixed all the mistakes.

    Today Johan and I took videos on the pitch for our exhibition. Johan and I took a lot of videos to day at NIST and it wasn’t possible to do at my house or his. We plan a lot on a video and we made it but it need’s a lot of improvement. We did a lot of plaining and thinking but it just didn’t work out the way we wanted to do but we worked hard.

    I wrote a email(my sister helped me with the words)to Mr. Paul but I didn`tsend it yet. I message was to get permission.

    Today I can start planning the deck. This includes:
    – How Paula and I are going to collect the seeds from tomorrow to April the 1st
    – What fruits should I eat for the seeds
    – How much plants do I want on the deck
    – What is my vision for the deck
    – What plants should I bring from home

    I chose to do this because Paula and I are spending a lot of time working together on this at School. If I do this at home we can save time.
    I can prove that I did most of this because I am writing all of this information down on mini pad paper (I forgot to bring pad paper fom school).

    March 24, 2011 at 8:50 am

    Sorry I couldn’t make a comment last night because as soon as I came home last night I had a very bad stomach pain and it still is paining a bit and now I have immigration to go to.

    So what I did was took a photo of some new points I got from home and wrote on my white board and I printed out a piece about street cricket.

    I chose to do that because first, I wanted draw, but then I couldn’t because I forgot them at school so I chose to research.

    I am going to prove it by getting the print out about street cricket and take a photo of what I did on the white board and bring it to school.
