Words discovery time!

Research Time!

There are billions of words in the dictionary. There are many types of words around the world too. Some words are used in the text, some are used in poetry and some are used in different kinds of writing. Literary device is one of the important types of word. While there are hundreds of literary devices have been created, there are 24 common types of literary devices. 

In our literacy class, our teacher have assigned our. classmate for different literary devices. She called it a mini lesson, which all of us will get one literary device and do some research to teach our classmates. Those research include, the meaning of the words, some examples and activity to make sure everyone understands the words.

Mini-Presentation

I got a relaxing task which do a mini-presentation for a word call Oxymoron. What I need to do is to look up what the word first and then I’ll go deeper and deeper. I’m in-charge of this word, so I want to make sure that all of my friends will understand this word. Let’s get started!

In Greek, Oxy mean sharp and moron mean foolish. Together, we call it an Oxymoron. Oxymoron originally put into a meaningful paradox and condensed into a couple of words such as Lonely crowded and sweet sorrow. Oxymoron also known as a figure of speech in which two opposites ideas are joined to create affect. The common oxymoron phrase is a combination of an adjective and preceded by a noun with contrasting meaning like living death. We don’t call a person oxymoron, but we describe them. Oxymoron usually use for style, to adding flavor to the speech, for entertainment and for drama effect. I also using oxymoron in my writing, but you don’t realize it. You can go check the first paragraph again. See? I use a word relaxing task. The word relaxing always mean easy and free. Task mean something that you need to get done and sometimes it difficult. I use this word because it sounds fun and make it more interesting. At the end of the presentation, I also have a game which I’m adopted from Study website. This game is just to test everyone understanding with making oxymoron.  I learn a lot from this self discovery and understand word.

Independent Study / Round 5

This round is more of independent. We need to make our own decision with our work. My teacher was creating a schedule for all of the student to put down their work and any work that related to writing. I think, I like this round the most because most of the work that I have during this class are mostly the work that left over from the last class and I could finish the homework on time. Including in that, my teacher also add some of the reading article and having us reading book and at the end, we will do our book review to our classmate.

My teacher call it a Novel Study. We read the novel and we study the novel by their vocabulary, their component, the format and the main idea of the book. I read a book call “The bad Beginning or Orphans! Written by Lemony Snicket. When I first saw this book, I feel like it really interesting with the cover and the title, but when I read the description, I don’t really want to read it. The description said “ Read something else! If you are like happy ending. This book is not only have sad ending, but it has no happy beginning or in the middle. The book have a little bit of happy scene. The book was amazing. I kind of like this book, but it’s not my favorite book. After finish the book, I am doing the book review with my other friend who read the same book as me and do a short presentation to my classmates.

Beside this reading things, my teacher also have a writing session and it’s about “How to Be happy”. This is about how to be happy when you get something bad or you have a bad situation. I wrote about How to stay positive when battle depression. I have spend almost ten weeks to finish this essay which include, research, correct grammar, finding quotes, inspiration, what is depression and new words using. Until now, I get one amazing essay which written by me!

S-I-M-P-L-E Machine / Round 5

Everyday, people use modern machine to help improve their work or make their work easier. Mostly, they define machine as the tool that use electricity and modern tool, but tools like hammer or axes are also call machine, but it’s just the different type of machine that you use the force from yourself more than it can do for you. For this round, I’ve not been at the class much, but I kind of understand and know what is my class content. In the past seven weeks, we have learn about Simple Machine! What’s a simple machine? Simple machine is any basic mechanical device for applying a force  which include wedge, plane and lever. For this topic, I’ve learn and understand the content from a website call ck12.org, but I also learn and do some research from the other website too.

To understand clearly about the content, my teacher have divide us into team and let us do some small project. In this project, we are making a simple machine and use whatever material that we have in our school. My team have three members and we decide to make pulley! Pulleys are simple machine that lifting some heavy stuff to make human easier.

These are the photos of Pulley that I have made with my teammates.

For this round, we have learn how to write essay in Khmer. There are many different type of essay in Khmer, which are Essay about proverbs and slogans, essay about Khmer literacy and essay about explaining something. The format and the process of writing these essays are really different. In my class, my teacher was picking an essay about proverbs and slogans. Because it is a lot, my teacher only focus on proverbs first than follow by slogans. How to write essay about Slogans? Well, we have different part to write about. First, we are writing about the introduction. In the introduction we are divided into three parts. There are into the problem, revenues problem and asking about the problem. The thing that the introduction want us to avoid is Don’t ask the slogans meaning to the audience. Second, we have body paragraph. In there we divided into five big parts which are, sentence connect with the introduction, explain some of keywords of the slogans, explain the topic, explain the meaning of the topic and conclusion of the topic. The third and the last of how to write the essay is the conclusion. For this, we have two parts to write about. First is giving feedback to the slogan and personal opinion about the slogans.

The slogan that he give us to write about is “ Waiting for each water drops, the cup will be full in one day”.

Independent Project / Round 5

 

This is the fifth round of technology/multimedia, but I still find it hard as always. I have learned a lot of things in this class which include, Adobe programs, coding and some strategies for researching. Coding seems to be very hard for me because I’m not really interested in coding and it’s really difficult for me. I always keep myself focused on my teacher, so I do not fall asleep and don’t understand anything. But, what’s special for this round is my teacher let us choose what topics that we have learned so far this year to learn more. I decided to choose photoshop and work on it, but I have so many problems. The point is I don’t know how to use photoshop :(. I want to edit a lot of cool picture like on the internet, but I can’t because I have no skill at all. In the end, I decided to use digital drawing to draw and outline some of the pictures in the photoshop.I  want to learn how to use Digital drawing because I see many people create their own cartoon with digital drawing. I’m obsessed with cartoon pictures. I want to draw and create my own cartoon pictures, so I decided to choose and learn more about Digital Drawing skills. I learned this skill by using a website call Wacom.com and I’ve seen some seniors and juniors using that and I try to learn with them. On Wednesday, there is a schedule that I have chosen to learn with my senior. It’s call Visual art project. They teach me how to use it. First, I only learn how to outline the picture and color them with simple picture. At first, I don’t really know how to use Photoshop. In Photoshop, they have so many layers and the layers  need to be in order, so that we can arrange our drawing path. The other thing is, we need to click on the layer that we want to draw, so that we can draw. In this part, I met so many problems with clicking the wrong layer and I don’t arrange it. I solved my problem by asking my friend and discovering things by myself. One thing I hate about discovering things by myself is sometimes my work goes crazy and it disappears. It was not fun to lose my work, but I really enjoyed outlining and coloring the picture. In the future, I think I want to try to draw my own picture and see what is the difference between my work and other people’s work, then I can improve them later. After I learned how to use the digital drawing, I really enjoyed it and I want to continue using it forever. Even though, I’m changing from editing some cool pictures into drawing things in Photoshop, but I have try some of the tools in Photoshop too! Here are some of my photos that I have edited.  

 

These are my drawing that I am using other people photo to outline and do some color.

These are my final products!

 

 

 

 

 

Wrap up all lessons/ Round 5

This is the last round of my third years. Woohoo! I can’t believe it this fast. So far this year, I have learn a lot of things such as Calculations with numbers, fractions, decimals, surface area, ratios, measures and volume, percentage, angles, data analysis, rate and speed, and an introduction to algebra. In all of those things that I learn in this year, I think, I do best on fraction, decimals and surface area. I seem to be very focus with these topics. For me, they are the most easy topics to learn in math. The hardest topic for me in math is algebra. This topic is really difficult for me TT. The word that they are using is really tricky and sometime it really hard to understand since English is not my first language. For this round, we are most focus on data analysis and rate and speed. In my opinion, these two topics is not really hard or easy, they are medium level for me. Some words problem of this topics is easy to solve, but as I say, the sentence or question are tricky that is why it make it’s hard for me.

The conclusion, this round I enjoy learning math class because it’s not really difficult and it’s an important topic or lesson for me when I’m growing up or take a test for university 🙂

Acid VS Base / Round 4

Did you know that spicy thing is acid?

Acid is a substance that have particular chemical properties. It’s include turning litmus red ( it’s a tool to measure acid and base ), neutral or neutralizing alkali and it dissolving some metals. Typically acid is known as a corrosive or sour-tasting liquid of this kind. Base is a chemical species that donates electrons, it accepts protons and releases hydroxide ions in aqueous solution. Base play certain characteristic properties that can be used to help identify them. The different between Acid and base is bases are the chemical opposite of acids. Base was any compound that when dissolved in water, gives a solution with a hydrogen ion activity lower than that of pure water. For acid, acids are defined as compound that donate a hydrogen ion to another compound ( it’s base ). Some example about acid, from I understand are lime or bitter thing.

How To Be Happy :) / Round 4

How to Be happy

This is the paragraph that I write about my feeling what make me HAPPY 🙂

People may have different kinds of happiness or not, but for me Yes! I have different kinds of happiness. When I’m out in nature alone with some fresh air and sunshine, it makes me happy and relaxes. I am happy when I’m with my family, eat together, talk together and laugh together. You could hear the sound of laughing and smile on their face. Music is also a part of my happiness. Soft music and relax music make me happy. Animals like dogs and grasshoppers make me happy. When they playing or hop around and eat something make me thinking of their freedom and I can see that they have a really happy feeling. One last thing is the most important for me. Cheer people up is the big happiness for me. I feel like I get to help people a lot with my cheer. I don’t know what are they thinking, but I just feel like I want to cheer them up.

Novel Study

Reading is the most important skill for us to have. We know a lot of thing from reading. We know the new thing, interesting things, mysterious, different factor anything else from reading. Reading making us happy or sad depending on what we read. For me, I like to read a novel book because it’s content a lot of emotional story and some methods. I decide to read that story is because I read the description of the movie and I look at the title of the book. Outsider is one of the books that I read in my literacy class. Our teacher let us choose what book we want to read. When I first see the Outsider, I feel like, I want to know what is the story about. So, I decide to choose that story as my novel for my learning.
The goal that my teacher wants to get from the students after they finish their novel, she wants us to understand and know what is the story want to talk about. The main and important target that we want are the summarize of the story, the conflict between character and character, the theme of the story and more… By learning this, our teacher divides us into a group and set a discussion after reading one or two chapters. The final product that we get is we create a Google slide and present to our class what we have learned from the novel and what is the story talks about.

Python Programming Language / Round 4

Imagine, if the world is full of robot that use Python language and if you don’t know anything about python language, what will you do? What can you help to save the world that full of evil robot?. So from now on, you should learn python to get to know, what it is and how can it work.

This is the following round from the last round. We still continues learning Python from the last round. This round we have learn about Python Dictionary and Python List. Python dictionary is the collections of item that is changeable. You need to write it with curly bracket { }. It doesn’t allow duplicate the items of the code. For Python list, it is the collection of items that is ordered and changeable. It allow duplicate the items of the code. In order to make it work, you need to write it with the square bracket [ ]. Now, let’s me talk about how to access the items. There are many different types of list. There are Assessing Items, change items value, loop through a list, check if items exist, list length, add items – append, add items – insert and remove items. You already see that, there are many types of list, so I will pick Assessing items to explain you. To print it you need to put the words print(the name of your function) and put the number with inside the square bracket and it’s will print out the order of your code. This is so complicated right? It’s okay, I’ll try my best to explain. So in this explain, I’ll use the variable call thislist. In python, they count from zero, so if you write the words like, banana, apple, cherry and grape, and you want to print the number one you need to write the print like this →  print(thislist[1]). The outcome will be apple because python count from zero and the value of zero is banana.   

You can do a lot thing in Python dictionary. For examples, you can change the values of the item, you can loop through the dictionary, check if item exist or remove some of loop. For me this is a little bit complicated, but I’ll try to explain it as much as I can. Example, when you want to print an information about someone, you want to include her name, her age, her birthday and her favorite band, you can use this code to help you print all the information that you want to get. So first, you need to name your variable. Let say you name your variable as Importantpeople. Then, you need to put an equal sign after your variable and put a curly bracket. After that you enter one to get to the down part and you can write your information. For this, you need to add quotation mark for that words. After that you need to put the colon between the two words. Here, I’ll write down for you.

Importantpeople = {

“name” : “Kakrona Pos”

“age” : “14 years old”

“birthday” : “1st, Sep, 2004”

“Favorite band” : “Seventeen”

}

print(Importantpeople)

Up there is all what I’m trying to explain you. You see? You need to put quotation mark in each word so that it can print out and the result that it will print, it will be

Name Kakrona Pos

Age 14 years old

Birthday 1st, Sep, 2004

Favorite band Seventeen

The summarize of what I’ve learn from Multimedia class is Python Dictionary is use for seeing the keys and values of the code. Python list is use for organize the list of your item and make it to an easy code to look and to read. For this round, I feel like I understand it better than last round :).
