The school year is almost over and I feel like I have accomplished a lot. At the beginning of the year I didn’t care about my grades that much. But now I have all A’s except for one B+. I’m pretty proud of myself because I feel like I actually worked hard to get those grades. I think I’m going to keep working hard on grades and turning things in on time. I also need to work on studying so I can do good on my tests. I feel like I’ve changed personality wise too with caring about things because before I didn’t care.
I feel like people keep secrets because they might think that if they let it out then people will judge them. Or maybe people will stop being friends with them if they let that secret out. This could lead to feel like you’re alone and then something tragic could happen. I feel like if we actually find someone who cares about us to tell our problems and secrets to then we would feel so much happier. We wouldn’t be alone and we would have people around us that we could trust and feel happy around. This could apply to my peers because maybe they feel like they can’t trust anyone so this would help them a lot.
In Romeo and Juliet when Friar Lawrence gives them advice I think he is telling them to love eachother but not to love eachother too much or they might get sick of it? I don’t know if this is exactly what it means but it kind of sounds like it. I don’t really think this is good advice because if you really do love someone I feel like you should love them the best you can and make them feel loved. I don’t think that Romeo and Juliet will follow this advice because I feel like they really love eachother.
I think that people can be capable of hating people because maybe that person has done something to them that they don’t like. But I feel like sometimes it can just be for a stupid reason that people should get over. I have someone that I don’t like. I don’t like her because she is rude to a lot of people for no reason. She makes fun of people and it makes people feel bad. I think it’s dumb that she does this but maybe she has her own problems. I think people can put this hatred feeling behind them if they just think it through and let it go.
Shakespeare has been around for awhile. Except I’m not sure that it should be taught anymore. It is a really old curriculum and we should use a new one. Shakespeare is also really hard to understand for some people. He uses hard words that kids our age might not get what he is trying to say. Also Shakespeare can be very tedious when you are reading it so if you do do something with Shakespeare you actually need to see the play instead of reading it. If it’s boring the kids are not going want to read it. I feel like it shouldn’t be taught anymore.
I don’t really know that much about Shakespeare except for the Romio and Juliet one. I’ve seen that gnome movie about it but that’s about it haha. I just know that he wrote plays. I think it might be cool trying to understand the things that he wrote. I feel like we should learn about it because he is and was very popular so I think that it’s important that we read about it and learn about it. I feel like it might be a little hard because I feel like I won’t be able to understand it but it will be good.
I think that it’s good being able to asses and grade my own work because it can help me with a lot of things. It can help me with being honest with myself and other people. For example, if you were grading your own homework and you got a couple of questions wrong then you might want to change them but you have to be honest and keep those wrong answers the same. It can also help me with being judgemental with work and things like that. Because if something was done wrong by someone at work but it needs to be exactly right then that would help because you could tell them nicely to fix it.
Term 3 I got a B+. I feel like I could probably reach for an A for fourth term. But to do that I think that I need to turn in my work on time and when I turn it in and do it I need to make sure that they are done profficently and good so I can get a high score. I feel like I need to actually study to so I can do good on tests. Also if I do bad on assignments and I get the chance to redo it I’m going to redo it and get a better score.
I thought that this was a good book. I think it taught some good principles and learnings. When we first started reading I kinda got bored of it but then when we got more into it, it was better and I payed more attention. I think that some parts in the book were sad like when Tom was “proven” guilty or when Tom got killed. I like atticus in the book and I think he was a good guy and that he was just a good person. He also taught some important things to everyone and Scout and Jem. Overall, the book was good.
In the book To Kill a Mockingbird, Miss Maudie says “We’re making a step. It’s a baby step, but it’s still a step.” I think this is meaningful and powerful because she said that they’re making progress but it’s just going slow. I think that this is how we can live life. We can make progress and things like that but we can take it slow and work on stuff that we need to work on and improve. I chose this quote because I feel like a lot of people can maybe relate to this and look back on it.
