Parent Teacher Conferences + Plans For Future

So recently, I’ve had a parent teacher conference. Most of the teachers had good things to say and had some things they were concerned with. One of the most common things the teacher brought up was that I needed to focus and study for tests more. To be honest, I completely agree with the teachers. One of the reasons why I don’t reach my full potential on tests is that I don’t study much. For example, in a recent Science test, I didn’t know what kind of lens are needed for near sighted and far sighted people. I could of studied and find out. As for focusing more, I also agree with this because other than homework, I could get good information in class. For example, we specifically talked about what kind of lenses are needed for near sighted and far sighted people. I feel bad that I didn’t reach my potential and I’m trying to continue my path to reaching my full potential

What I do on the Weekends

What I usually do on the weekends is go snowboarding with one of my friends. When we go snowboarding, we usually go for the whole day. Usually, it’s from 11 AM or 12 AM to 8 PM or 9 PM. When we go snowboarding, we stay around the Freestyle Park and attempt to do tricks. However, after that, we would speed down the hill and try to get back to the park as fast as we can. Last week, 5 of my friends and I went to Cypress mountain to snowboard. However, the snow was really bad that day and it was practically dirt mixed with a bit of snow. The park was closed that day and I tried to teach two of my friends how to snowboard. However, they were taking too long so I decided to leave them. However, while I was speeding down, I hit a rock and did a unintentional cartwheel in mid air and laded on my neck (Karma). It was not painful but it took lots of energy to move my head around for the rest of the day. Cypress mountain unfortunately closed at 3:30 PM so I did not get to snowboard the whole day.

Transdisciplinary Skills (PYP Attitude)

 

Transdisciplinary Skills

The skills I have achieved many skills such as thinking skills, communication skills and social skills. I have achieved theses skills by communicating with friends, teachers and parents. I do a lot of planning and thinking into my projects and assignments. I also achieved these skills by making a lot of friends and communicate with them.

Personally, I need to develop skills such as self-management skill and research skills because sometimes forget to bring my homework and sometimes, my studies are not detailed enough. I hope I will succeed developing these skills and I hope it can help me in the future.

Knowledge (PYP Attitudes)

Knowledge
I have learned many things from UOI, Math, English and Art. In Math, I have learned how to divide, multiply, add, subtract and simplify fractions. I’ve learned how and when to use cancellation and reciprocals. During our Where we are in place and time unit, I liked learning about the American Revolutionary War very much. For example, I learnt about the Boston Massacre. I mostly enjoyed learning about art. What would the world be like without art? My favourite subject in art was the flower vase painting. during this project, we painted a vase and worked on creating bright textured flowers. The subject I like in math is dividing fractions, add and subtracting fractions and cancellation. The knowledge I have learnt this year will be helpful to my future.

Confidence (PYP Attitudes)

Confidence
I show confidence in school by trying to speak French in French class. This shows my confidence because I am new to French and try to learn as much as I can. I also show confidence by trying out new things like math questions, English, and much more. Finally, I show confidence in PE by trying out things that are new to me. I can improve this even more by thinking outside the box and practicing the new PE activity at home or practice French at home every night for 30 minutes.

I should work on my commitment skill because I sometimes forget my homework, and school equipment for example, PE indoor shoes. I should also work on my independent skills because I sometimes rely on others to do the work for me. I can try to improve those skills by remembering to pack my homework before I go to sleep and I can study more to reach higher and beyond the expectations. I can also ask my parents to get me new shoes every once in a while and bring them to school. Working on these attitudes will help me be even more successful.
