Meu Projeto

     The point of our presentations were to show our understanding of the imperative form. I wrote about Julius Ceaser in the imperative form. During the process of making my presentation I learned a lot about the imperative form and Julius Ceaser. I enjoyed making the presentation.

Pythagorean Theorem

     Understanding relationships and establishing patterns will help us measure and define physical space. The Pythagorean theorem connects with our essential math system because this theorem is a very special theorem. It consists of A2+B2=C2, and accurate for each right triangle. 
Two math problems relevant to what I have learned this unit are:

A soccer field is a rectangle 90 meters wide and 120 meters long. The coach asks the players to run from one corner to the other diagonally across. What is the distance?

A fire truck parks 8 meters away from an apartment building. The fire truck extends its ladder 15 meters to the very top of the building. How tall is the apartment building?

The Third Post...

     Currently I am reading two books which are, Run Silent Run Deep and Wonder. A strategy I am using in class and during my reading is mostly for shadowing, exploring details of historical fiction and visualisation. One of the examples of for shadowing in the book Wonder was, when August was very nervous and almost didn't want to go to his three day school trip. Is saw this as a for shadowing because I knew that something bad was going to happen during his trip away from school. In the end, something bad did happen to August. Second, exploring details of historical fiction was big part of the book Run silent Run Deep because it was took place in World War 2 which made me observe main historical facts through out the book, such as, the S-16 a commonly used submarine in World War 2. Next, visualisation was occurring in both books, but the most visualising happened in wonder. This could be because Wonder is a easier vocabulary and a lower lexile level than Run Silent Run Deep. Even though there are some differences in both books a like them both just as much.
     At first I thought my goal was relatively easy, but now I see that it is pretty hard to keep up with. For instance, when I come home I have many situations to deal with, such as, sports, homework, and Dutch lessons. These circumstances affect the time I spend at home, equaling for only a small period of time left for reading before I go to bed. Even tough there are nasty circumstances to deal with I do my best to achieve my goal which is to read 40 mins evenly spread out over two languages, English and Dutch. A core value I am clearly demonstrating through out my reading goal is perseverance, because to achieve my goal every day requires this core value.
