Final Post

In my ESL class, we could choose what we want to study about. I choose to study more about art supplies. I chose art supplies because art is my favorite subject and I want to learn more about the things that we use in art. There are many art supplies so, I choose one of the art supplies. I study about flubber. First I made a post for the Knowledge stage. In the knowledge stage, I research about art supplies. Second I made another post for Comprehension stage. In the Comprehension stage, I have to understand more about flubber. Next, is the Application stage. In this stage, I made the flubber. Last, is the analyze stage which I'm doing now. In this stage I need to answer my UOI question. This is my question:

What are the effects of making homemade art supplies?

There are few effects from making homemade art supplies. First effect for students is that we could do it again and we save money. Like the materials cost Rp.100.000, 00 and the flubber at the store cost much more and hard to find, To make flubber is very easy and the materials that we need to make flubber is easy to find.

Second effect for me is that I could have new experience and I could learn. We could learn how to make a perfect flubber; I make my own flubber, so we have new experience. It is very fun to make flubber at home because I like to mix and squish the glue until the glue becomes flubber, but I want to put more drops of food coloring, so the color of my flubber is not blurry.

Third effect on artists is the flubber that we made is not as good as the one at shops. Flubber is hard to find in shops. The materials that we used and the materials that the shops used are different, so the flubber that we make at home is not as good as the shops made. But it’s better to make your own flubber than buying it because we could have new experience and we could learn something.

This is my interview with Mr. Jabiz (My ESL teacher). Please Enjoy!

Art Supplies: Week 5

This week is the fifth week to learn about art supplies. Here are the projects that I made for the fifth week. Please Enjoy!

My second task for this week was to tell about my flubber. Here is a paragraph about my flubber. 
My flubber turns out perfect as I want it to be. My flubber is purple. My flubber is fun to play but when I put the flubber in a cold or hot room the flubber will melt and become water. I love to play with flubber.

Art Supplies: Week 4

This is a  movie that I made about the difference between watercolor and flubber. Please enjoy!

The next step is to "Predict what will happen if I use dye that I made instead of food coloring." I think the flubber will be just fine if I use dye that I made because food coloring and dye is like paint, but I need to know some recipes to make dye.

The next step is "Can I write flubber recipe without looking at the website." This is the recipe that I wrote with out looking at the website:
In one bowl, stir together ¾ warm water, 1 cup of glue and food coloring to get the color you want. In the second bowl, stir together ½ cup of water and 2 teaspoons to Borax. Pour the first bowl into the second bowl and you have a flubber!

Then my last step for this week is to "I write a brief outline of the steps." Here is a movie that I made for the brief outline. Please Enjoy!

Art Supplies

In my ESL class I learn about "Art Supplies" for my free study unit. After researching how to make 4 easy homemade art supplies I found a website called "The Homeschool Classroom." This website was great because it tells how to make an easy homemade art supplies. Some of the art supplies that I'm going to try are Watercolor Paint, Puffy Paint, Flubber and Bath Crayons.

Watercolor paint:
The materials that I need to make watercolor paint are corn starch, corn syrup, baking soda, white vinegar and food coloring. I'm not going to try to make watercolor paint because I think to make watercolor paint need a long time.


Flubber:
The materials that I need to make flubber are warm water, glue, food coloring, 2 bowls and borax. I'm going to try to make flubber because I think to make flubber is simple.

Puffy Paint:
The materials that I need to make Puffy paint are 1 bowl, flour, salt, water, tempera paint and a squeeze bottle. I'm not going to try to make puffy paint because I think to make Puffy paint is too complicated.
Bath Crayons:
The materials to make Bath crayon are soap, hot water and food coloring. I'm going to make bath crayons if my flubber fail. I want to make bath crayons because I think to make bath croyons is easy and I don't need to find many materials.

Do anybody know how to make dye?
I want to make my own dye instead of using food coloring.
To go to the website for more recipes to make other art supplies follow this link.

Areas Of Interaction - Environment


This is my poster about environment. Environment is one of the Areas Of Interaction or AOI. First, my teacher, Ms Ildi told us that we have to make a poster about an Area of Interaction, and I pick environment. Then, I made a title called "Environment"and change the background color from white to green. After I made a title and changed the background color I looked for pictures connected to environment. Then, I typed questions about environment. Last, I printed my poster. I had fun making this poster.

Learner Styles

There are three learning styles: Visual learners, Auditory learners and Kinesthetic learners.
Visual learners learn through seeing, auditory learners learn through listening and kinesthetic learners learn through moving, touching and doing.

I think my learner style is Visual because I learn more when I see things. By learning through visual I love to make notes with colors and I study from the notes that I've made.

Scrip Editing

This is the post that I've made before I studied grammar and sentences. After I learnt grammar and sentences my language B teacher (Mr. Jabiz) asked me to edit the grammar and sentences. Here is my old post...


Being A Caring Person
Caring was my IB Learner Profile I was a caring person because I like to help my mom prepare breakfast and dinner, I like to help my brother study the things that he don't understand, I like to feed my dog, I like to help my father to find his car key, I also like to help my friends study the things that they don't understand. I was very happy that I could be helpful to everyone.

I want to improve my caring learner profile, to be more helpful and to be a caring person to everyone.  I think from what I did to be caring person, was quite well. I could be more caring when my friends or family or anybody else need help from me I could be more helpful for them. From all this 6 years of learning in school, I think I was a caring student to everyone. I start to be a caring person since I was 5 or 6 years old until now.

I think from now on I need to be more helpful so I could be more caring person. I think that I should learn to be more a caring person from other people that I think that they're a caring person. I suggest that people need to be a caring person also because now people were making poisons to get money for themselves. That things that people did was dangerous and the people who did that wasn't a caring person. I would like for people to be a caring person so the world wouldn't be bad.



This is a video that I took during the time I edit my old post. Please Enjoy!

This is the new post. This post is the post that I've edited. Please Enjoy!


Being A Caring Person
Caring was my IB Learner Profile. I was a caring person because I like to help my mom prepare yummy breakfast and dinner, help my little brother study the things that he don't understand, feed my brown dog, help my father to find his black car key and help my friends study the things that they don't understand. I was very happy that I could be helpful to everyone.

Things that people did were dangerous and the people who did that weren’t a caring person. I would like people to be a caring person so the world wouldn't be bad.

Adverb movie

This is my adverb movie. Please enjoy!

Reflection:
It fun to make my animation movie about adverb. The fun part was choosing the background and the characters. By doing this, I learn more about adverb because when I make my movie, I wrote the scrip and the scrip that I wrote help me memorize what adverb is.

My Mozart Presentation

In Language A, I'm making a presentation about Mozart. Something that I've learn after I red Mozart's book, I've learnt that when Mozart was three years old Mozart already learnt music, I also learnt that Mozart's full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Amadeus Gottlieb Sigsmundus Mozart and now I knew that when Mozart was six he jumped to Empress Maria Theresia's lap and gave her a kiss.

I've been making the presentation since last week but now I've finish my presentation. It was kind of fun to make the presentation. This is my title page from my presentation:

Adjective movie reflection-grammar

In language B I’ve been learning about grammar. Now I’m learning about adjective. Adjectives are words that describe noun. I’ve learned many new adjective words.  A project for my adjective unit was to make a movie about 45 seconds to 1 minute about adjectives. I like this activity because when I did this activity we need to be creative. This activity also helped me to understand more about adjectives and learn more new adjectives.

Some of the steps to make my movie were, first to find two videos in “YouTube”, put your video into “IMovie”, mute the video that you’ve found, write adjectives in the video, make the introduction about adjectives, put a title page, make a slide of adjectives that I’ve put in the videos, export your movie to “Garageband”, record your voice talking about the adjectives that I’ve put to my videos, make your own music and put it into your movie, then last we export it in “ITunes”. My favorite part was making the music. The most difficult part was when you record your voice in “Garageband”.

This is my movie…

Reflection On Grammar Unit

After Christmas break, in language B I learned about grammar. First I think that grammar was so boring but when I learn more about grammar I think that grammar were a little bit fun. The things that I learned so far in the grammar unit are the parts of speech. Parts of speech is the 8 categories of speech, but my teacher Mr. Jabiz said that we were going to learn 4 categories first. The 4 categories that I've learn were noun, adjective, verb and adverb.

But now I'm learning about noun. Noun are things, places, people and ideas. Some of the thing that I've learned in noun are plural nouns, singular nouns, compound nouns, concrete nouns, abstract nouns, common nouns and proper nouns. I also had learned the definition of the nouns. For example, plural nouns are the things that are more than one, singular nouns are the things that's only one, compound nouns are two words that being one word like cupcake, common nouns are things, person and place for example mother, concrete nouns are the things that we can sense, abstract nouns are the things that we can't sense and proper nouns are the things that is specific like Jakarta.

After learning noun I'm going to take a quiz of nouns and then I'm going to learn adjective. I already know some things about adjective, adjective modifies noun. An Example of adjective are fat, glad, angry, and more.




This is a chart that explains about nouns. My friends and I did this chart to help us learned nouns more easier.


I like working as a group in "Google docs" because it's easier for me to do things in a group.
I like using "Flickr" for the images because the images from Flickr are more better than taking it from "Google".
