What was your favorite activity?
My favorite activity in Quarter 1 was writing seed stories. It gives me a chance to help me remember what happened in my life, whether it was 5 minutes ago or 5 years ago. Writing seeds are fun things to do and I like to write in general. I also like the fact that they are brief moments in time, so if I only remember a snapshot to write a seed story.

What went well for you this quarter?
Just about everything went well for me this quarter. I enjoyed writing seed stories and doing Reader's Workshop work. I thought I would have to improve in writing, but it surprised me that I did excellent. I did better than i thought i would have.

What do you still need to work on? (Be specific)
I still need to work on two things. One thing is planning out long term projects. I usually leave a lot of it towards the end. If I plan out my long term projects. I will be better off now and later in life. The other thing I need to work on is making sure to study my spelling words more carefully. I always get 1 silly mistake if not 2.

How have you used technology in class?
We use the Promethean Board in class a lot. Mr. Burdick usually writes what we will do that day in class on the board's surface. We also use laptops a lot. On the laptops, we usually type up stories or go on websites relating to the lesson.

What would you like to do next quarter?
I would love to be able to use the Promethean Board interactively more this upcoming quarter. I would absolutely love coming to LA if we could do that.
