Technology/Multimedia Round5

Technology/Multimedia R5

Welcome to Technology/Multimedia class Round 5. During this round, the first day of class is to just review and look back to what we have learned since round 1 until round 4. After we have reviewed it already, we need to choose one project that we want to work on which is related to what we have learned. Also to make it better, teacher give us permission to go to websites to do research more about it, and Youtube to watch and to give us more idea. For example, you learn how to edit photos, so the teacher did not really introduce you what is this and what is that, they just basically teach you the big part of the App that you are working on like Photoshop, so if you want to explore more about the app like Photoshop, you can go to Youtube and watch how to add effect and stuff like that. My project for this round is to use a camera to take some videos and to create a video using Adobe Premiere Pro. I have been interested in editing videos since I learned how to edit videos using Adobe Premiere Pro. I just have the feeling that I love it. And I watched some videos that teach me how to add effect on Premiere Pro, it helped me a lot and also because I already learned the basic for Premiere Pro, so I felt it is kind of easy for me now. Here is a photo of the video that I am editing.

This is my first time editing video using Adobe Premiere Pro. I am so sorry, this website did not allow me to publish video than the required maximum size on it, so I only got pictures for you all. Down are some pictures of the video.

My video is a little bit short because this is my first time editing video, I just wanted to make it short because it is easier for me to edit. I used a camera to film random things, people, and I just have to import it into Adobe Premiere Pro and cut some and keep some and add effects some.

I was planned to also put the picture into my video too, but because I don’t have enough time to do it, so I just have to make edit video only, I hope you will enjoy these photos.

 

 

 

 

 

Physical Education R5

Working out in our own time is great, doing exercise with friends is best. This is the last round for PE (Physical Education). I have a PE class once a week, which is on Tuesday. It is really fun. I love to play sports, any kind of sports, I love to play all. During the class, we play many kinds of sports. Here is the list of sports that we used to play during this class since my first year at Liger:
Football
Basketball
Volleyball
Dodgeball
Handbask
Kickball
e.t.c

But, let’s talk about this round. During this round, we mostly play Dodgeball. (In the sports court) We divided the class into two teams. We put the ball in the center of the sports court, the teacher count to three we can start to run to take the ball and just shoot. There are few rules, we can’t get out of the line in the sports court, you need to dodge to be able to live, if the ball hits you, you will die. If the ball is already bounced, and it hits you, that is fine. If your enemy throws the ball to you, and you catch it and it’s not falling down, your enemy will die. Sometimes, it can be very harmful, my own experience is that after I played it, my hand hurts so bad. But I mean it still one of my favorites sports for me.

 

Khmer R5

Welcome to Khmer Class R5. This is the last round of the year. This is a really fun, joyful round of the year. There are many things going on. During the class, we did a lot of research on our own topic. Which the other have different topics. After we did research, we have to present what we have been researching to the whole class. I have been assigned to create a poem which talks about our history, how our land gets lost. After I made it already, I read it to the whole class. During this round 5, we have a very big event happening, it is called, Khmer Literature day. Everyone is so busy, we have to get things done, especially the seniors. If we don’t have our teacher and seniors, the event won’t happen. Seniors they have so many works to do, some are contacting for people outside to come and visit, some are doing fundraising, some are asking for the sponsors to make the event happen. I am also part of the event, I help my friends to decorate, taking the tables and more. The day before the event happen, it was one of the busiest days in this round, I did not go to class all day, I have to sit and cut paper, and trying to help as much as I could. I sometimes take a break. The day that the event happens, everyone is looking super nice. There are visitors from outside, students, our parents, and a lot of people were joining our event. Creating a poem is a big part of the event, Khmer dance performing, and also Public Speaking. There is also more booth that people can come and look. For creating the poem, you just have to go to the poem writing booth, sign up your name, then just write a poem with your own topic. Here some photos during the event, so after our team performs, the audience can come and take a photo with us. These are just random photos from the event.

Jr. Lit Essential | R5 (Apr. 25-June 4) 2018-2019

Hello and Welcome to Junior Literacy R5. This is the last round of the year. The theme for this round is Make the most of your learning. The first day of the round, we basically learn about the purpose of the theme, then learning targets. This round it’s like an independent, we need to prioritize what we are doing for the rest of the round. Create a schedule for the rest of the round so that our teacher can check to make sure our teach knows what we are doing. There are five big tasks for us to get done by the end of this round:

  1. How I Changed Cambodia Essay
  2. Novel study- complete one novel and have a conference (may be independent or a lit circle)
  3. Daily Warm-Up Activities
  4. Vocabulary Log- please keep a log of all the vocabulary you are learning
  5. Portfolio- one exploration post and one post per essential class (6 total)
  6. Take the DuoLingo Practice test x2 (1st one due on May 10, 2nd one due May 31)

We also use Commonlit and Newsela as a source to read book online books. Also, our teacher can assign tasks and grade us on it. Even though it’s an independent round but we still have a lot of work to get done. Which is a really busy round for me. But those works are not that hard, we just need more time to finish it. I sometimes go on a trip, so I need more time to get things done before the due date. Dure the class, between May 20-24 we have WIDA testing which is really important to know your level and your scores. We have this test once a year. During the WIDA test, we have four sections, Speaking, Listening, Writing, and Reading. I can’t tell you my scores because it is secret. 
And this is basically it, during R5 Jr. Lit 2019. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂 

Volleyball

           I like to play so many sports like football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, etc. Volleyball is my number one favorite sports. I like to play volleyball in my free time. I wake up in the morning after I washed my face I go to the sports court and do some volleyball training by myself. Some of you might think that it is really boring to play volleyball lonely. But not for me. I like to practice playing volleyball my own. I used the wall to help me with my training. I learned how to hit the ball, how to block the ball(two hands above the head, jumping with arms reaching for a ball that has been spiked), etc. It was not that easy for me for the first time of training it. But later, it becomes more comfortable for me. When I first do my own training, it hurts me so bad, especially my muscle. A few weeks later, it is easier for me to train than in the first week of training. There are so many rules for volleyball. Here are the rules that you can learn. And this rules I took it from a website called The Art of Coaching Volleyball. (You can check the link down below)
                                                   
                                                          Basic Volleyball rules:

  • 6 players on the floor at any one time – 3 in the front row and 3 in the back row
  • Maximum of 3 hits per side
  • Points are made on every serve for winning team of rally (rally-point scoring).
  • Player may not hit the ball twice in succession. (A block is not considered a hit.)
  • Ball may be played off the net during a volley and on a serve.
  • A ball hitting a boundary line is in.
  • A ball is out if it hits an antennae, the floor completely outside the court, any of the net or cables outside the antennae, the referee stand or pole, the ceiling above a non-playable area.
  • It is legal to contact the ball with any part of a player’s body.
  • It is illegal to catch, hold or throw the ball.
  • A player cannot block or attack a serve from on or inside the 10-foot line.
  • After the serve, front-line players may switch positions at the net.
  • Matches are made up of sets; the number depends on level of play. 3-set matches are 2 sets to 25 points and a third set to 15. Each set must be won by two points. The winner is the first team to win 2 sets. 5-set matches are 4 sets to 25 points and fifth set to 15. The team must win by 2 unless tournament rules dictate otherwise. The winner is the first team to win three sets.

I actually just copy and paste so you can read here. If you want to see the website where I took these from, you can check the link it’s here:

At last, I want to say thank you to this website, I learned a lot from this website.

 

Multimedia R4

        This is multimedia Round4. During this round, we were learning about Python Functions and Python List. The definition for Python Function is really easy, it is a block of code, it is reusable, and that only run when it is called. Why do we use functions? It is easier to use the function, you often want to repeat actions again and again so you can do that, and it just makes your code more organized. We used a website call Code Club to practice on our project. And those projects are called Rock Paper Scissors, Modern Art, Team Chooser, Turtle Race, etc. I chose a project called Turtle Race. If you want to see my project, the link is down below, you can check it out. So each of us has to take one project to work individually, and if you finished, you can work on another project. This is one example of a Python Function:
def first_function () : 
       print (“Hello first function”)

This is one another example of a Python List:
thislist = [“Dara”, “Pisal”, “Huykea”]
      print (thislist[0])
“Dara” is at index 0

 

So that is basically it, what I have been learning in Round4. As I mentioned earlier about my project, so here it is, the link to my project. It is called Turtle Race. But because I made some changes to it, so now I call it Shape/Turtle Race. I hope you will like my project.

Multimedia

Some people think that coding is fun for them but some people also think that coding is boring. For me, it’s really boring for me. It’s not because of the way that teacher teach me but, it’s because of my feeling I don’t like it. This round we’ve learned about Python Conditionals and If Statements. Inside the Python Conditionals and If Statements we also have more like For Loops While Loops and more. It was so boring for me sometimes I don’t get it sometimes I got it and because sometimes I was on the trip so I have to do a lot of catch up for the all the lesson. I did not expect that it was this hard for me. It was so confusing because before I learned Python I had learned another coding language called JavaScript. I hope that one day I might be better at it than the other subject. 
          In the class we also did some practice like after we learned Python we did an exercise about it and it goes really good I love it. It does not mean that I hate it, I just don’t like it for some reasons and because it’s hard.

 

 

 

 

Bamboo

Bamboo exploration is the very first exploration I have done. We learned a lot about the bamboo. For the first week, we are just sitting in class and learn about the bamboo, watch some videos about the bamboo with our teacher Sushi. But after that, we have started to brainstorm with our team to create some products. After we brainstorm with our team about the products that we are going to create already, we decided to talk to our teachers about the products that we are going to create and our prove about what we are doing and we just start to create it. The actually did not recycle the bamboo but we buy and use the new one because after we finish the products, there might be the peace that left so we can recycle it. The products that our student have created is Bamboo lamp, Keychain, Bamboo Pot, and a lot more. We spent almost 4 weeks on the products and now there is only one week left so we decided to stop because we think that we have enough products to sell for our little small market. The week left our teacher divided us into small teams for the Sharation which people come from outside and see what we are doing.
I am doing a survey for the Bamboo and some of my friends doing to market and some of them are doing some play and it was really fun. After we finish our market it was like all of our products have sold because many people really like our products. We got around 100$ so we decided our team should have a movie night with popcorn at our teacher house. And we have a movie night at our teacher house (Sushi) The movie was free because he put the slide show and we also have some Pizza popcorn and some drinks like orange soda.

Liger Geography Accesories

The idea of this exploration is to create a board game for our Liger Geography Books. We spent a lot of time together to create a board game. We decided to divide our whole exploration into two teams. Each team has to come up with an idea of a board game and create a prototype of it. So after both teams finish the prototypes they and have a look at each other and explain each team the rules, how to play it, how many people can play etc…. After we finish the explanation and we test the game we combined those two into one. So now we don’t have two teams anymore we have only one big team with 16 students create a board game for the Geography books. After we finish we want to print out our board game but the problems are that we have to spend a lot of money on it so we decided not to print it out but for the prototype that has created we can still keep it, try it and play it when we have free time. 

STEM

STEM class is really fun right now, especially when we are having an experiment with our teacher or other teachers from outside Liger. Previous month we did an experiment with our teachers with put a rock into coke and we all watch what will react between coke and rock. Yesterday we did an experiment with a Master Engineer called Mark, which we all have to build a sand castle and the castle that can hold the most book will win.
