Progress Report

For my first report card of the middle school I think I did pretty well, but I still have lots of areas to improve. For English, I want to improve the style of my writing and I will always check over my work when writing anything because I easily make mistakes. I think my content of my writing is good though. For math, need to work on criterion B by knowing different math methods to answer questions. For Science, I need to improve on using scientific language and to remember the small little details on tests that we need to know. I am pretty good at showing evidence with the data collected from experiments. For social studies, I want to start using more socials vocab and I want to try to make my conclusions and introductions to my essay really clear. I am good at accurate information in my work though. For French, I want to try to use different study methods to study for tests and quiz’s, for example, using quizlet. In D.T the category that I need to improve on was the Research and Analysis. Now on my second project, I understand is required for each stage of the process of building or project. My strongest stage in D.T was the designing stage. For P.A I need to not be afraid when acting. I am going to try to get all E’s in my next report card. Overall, I think that there are many strong areas of my studies that I have but lots to improve. I am going to improve on my weakness’s to get better marks. I am excited to see the outcomes of my next report card.

Electives (September, October, November)

My electives that I am doing this year are Journalism, Active for Life and Art of Today. I like all my electives. In Journalism, we are interviewing people about the cafeteria and getting different opinions about it. Right now in Active for Life, we are doing Rock Climbing and I am really enjoying it. Next week, we are going to start snow shoeing. I think this elective is the right choice for me because I love doing different types of sports that we don’t get to do at school. Right now in Art of Today we are making personal logo’s we can stick on t-shirts. I think this elective is good for me because I like making art and crafts . I don’t like drawing but I like making art and crafts. Also, this elective will improve my visual arts skills because I am not very good at that subject. I am really glad we are doing electives this year because electives can focus on the areas we are most interested in and it can focus on areas that we enjoy the most that doesn’t necessarily relate to school work. For the rest of the year, I am going to have a fun, enjoyable, learning experience in my electives.
