Quarter 2 Reflection

The most challenging part of second quarter was all using my time right. I feel like when I had homework I wouldn’t use my time wisely and work on it last minute. So I want to start working on scheduling my time and not waiting last minute. Even though I always got my work done I felt like I didn’t put as much effort as I should have with my work and time. Starting next quarter I will work on my homework early so each night I’m not stressing about work or missing assignments.

An era I think I improved in ELA is my word usage. I feel since I started to do vocabulary I have a better range of words. When we get vocabulary I usually don’t know any of the words, so it’s nice to get to learn words that mean something I already knew. Also the vocabulary has help me right better when I need a different word so I don’t repeat anything. Vocabulary has become a big part of my life in ELA.

Some strategies that I use to help me are color coding, and writing things down in my notebook. These help me because when I use color it helps me remember because it pops out to me. Also just writing down things to help me understand because I write it down and talk about it in class. Strategies have been really helpful in this class.

The Secret War

So far in my book I read about how when Germans,Japanese,and U.S were  preparing for war some people were spies for each other. There was a man named Admiral Wilhelm Canaris was in the German army. People think he helped his allies because he thought Hitler and his Nazi party was bad for Germany. “ Canaris presided over an organization with three main arms.  Abwehr I was the espionage arm, collecting information from German and foreign who operated in the major cities of Europe, the Near East and the United States.” Canaris decided to spy on his own people because he didn’t like how Hitler and the Nazi party was.  Many other people were spies too. For example, Ogawa set up networks to spy on Hawaii so he had more information on the fleet. Even committees were putting German spies out of business so they can work for the British.

Something I found interesting was how the Japanese wanted to work with blacks just to have trouble with the United States. “ The Japanese hopes the work with the blacks would lead to racial troubles that, as one of their messages to Tokyo put it, would ‘stall the program of U.S. plans for national defense.’ Terasaki people also maintained ties with Nisei — Japanese — Americans - orking in American defense plants and serving in the army and navy.” This short part in my book was interesting to me because Japan just wanted to work with African Americans so it can cause trouble with the U.S. They wanted the U.S to focus on something so they could attack.

Some things I learned so far is that the United States rounded up most Japanese people and but them in internment camps because they thought the Japanese were just spying on the U.S. I thought this was interesting because some of these people probably just wanted to go to the U.S for a better life but their getting thrown in camps.

Defeated(SOL19)

Yesterday I had a soccer game against one of the best soccer teams. Within the first 10 seconds of the game they scored on us. After that they scored three more times. The first half of the game was over and we were losing badly. Our coach gave us a pep talk on how to be better, tougher, and stronger. In the second half we were better and stronger but they scored. By the end of the game we had lost but we will not give up next game.

Stressful(SOL19)

Today was the last day of spring break. I was glad to go back to school but at the same time I’m not. This week is going to be very busy for me. I wish we had another week off but we don’t. I have a soccer game tomorrow against a really good school. Then another day we have practice so I will be working hard. Also I believe we have testing for school so my days are going to go by very slow. But I can’t wait till Friday because I am going somewhere with my best friend and I can’t wait to go. If I get through this week I will be happy because all I am waiting for is Friday.

Potterhead (SOL19)

Today was just another boring day so I decided to read my Harry Potter book. I was on the last book and it took me about three months to finish a 759 page book. The ending of the book gave be goosebumps because when I read it something was about to happen and it could have been bad or good. The deathly hallows was probably my favorite because some of the characters acted differently then in the other books. Some parts of the book were really sad because some of the characters that Harry was very close with died. I don’t want to spoil any parts but let me just say the boy who lives,keeps on living. I am so proud of myself that I finished the whole series this year. I recommend you to read the series.

Lost?(SOL19)

My mom and I were on are way to the outlets to go shopping. While we were driving we thought the gps was taking us the wrong way because it wouldn’t tell us where to go. I thought we were going to get lost but we found are way back to the rode we were supposed to be on. After that I thought we were going to get lost again but we didn’t and I felt fine. Once we made it to the outlets we went shopping and I got a new pair of shoes that I love.
