My Speech

Working hard or hardly working? 

By: TE 

I was always raised to think that homework is the most important thing in school. Today I will show you it is not that simple.

You may be surprised, but homework also has negative effects! Homework causes children to lie to parents or teachers, copy from friends and sometimes do their homework carelessly just to get it done. Homework can cause stress and anger between parents and children. Another negative effect can be the gap between rich and poor – rich parents can afford to pay private tutors, while less rich parents can not. This creates a gap in school and classroom between children from different families.

On the other hand, there is no doubt that homework also has positive sides. Studies show that homework helps to better remember the study material, can increase comprehension, and homework can also push the student to think of independent solutions. In addition, homework involves parents in their children’s learning and helps teachers know the level of students.

So can we make homework a better experience? Maybe we can!

I think that in order to make homework a good experience – teachers should give few options according to the level of the students, give homework solely on the material taught in class, and give some of the homework as a non-compulsory assignment. It is important to guide students to do their homework in a creative or artistic way, and to make sure that the time required to prepare homework is relatively short.

To conclude, we saw that homework has pros and cons, and there are ways to make homework a good experience. So now the teachers have a lot of homework to do on how to make our homework an amazing experience!

I’m exploring the world of stones [in this case it’s cookies]

So yes I am researching the world of stones [in this case it is cookies] what I will tell will be very funny and interesting.
1] MissM brought two different types of chocolate chip cookies, with two different types of chocolate
2] Missm brought us 2 toothpicks [I did not use it for teeth] so we could work with them and dig [this cookie needs something small]
3] I took out all the chocolate chips and gently broke the cookies
. Inside the cookies it was harder to take out the chocolate chips

Innovation Day – Pulley Project

ELEVATOR

What did I need for the elevator I built: wire, 2 long pieces of cardboard, a box, 2 short pieces of cardboard, and a stick
How I connected all the parts: I took the hot glue and the 2 long parts and the 2 short parts I put 1 of the long parts
And on both sides I glued the short parts
And over the short parts I glued the last long part
  1. How I started the structure of the elevator: I took the box and made 2 holes up the holes and inserted the stick into the holes.
  2. How I build the evaluator pulley: I take the string and fold it. At the end of the fold, I glued it to the dowl (wooden stick). at the other end, I glued the elevator box
  3. How I built the flag pole: take a large wooden pole and glued it to the base. I take more wooden sticks and glue them to the top. I take two small pieces of cardboard and make a square shape to make a pulley. Between the small cardboard, I put the rope through and on one end draw a ‘T’ and two swords on the square flag. I glue the flag to the rope.

Mayan Pryamid ה-מאיה פירמידות

אני בניתי את זה עם קרטון ,חתכתי את הקרטון למשולשים ואז הורדתי להם את הלמעלה ,והדבקתי ריבועה ואז בניתי 
קובעה והדבקתי אותה למעלה וכך היה לי פירמידה בסוף צבעתי ויצא מהמם בטרוף

 

I built it with cardboard, cut the cardboard into triangles and then I lowered them to the top, and I glued a square and then I built a statement and glued it up so I had a pyramid at the end I painted and it came out stunning in the end.

Penelope
I love fantasy and magic books but also suspense and adventure and this book has them all אני אוהבת ספרי פנטזיה וקסמים אבל גם מתח     
והרפתקאות ובספר הזה יש את כולם אני אהבתי את הסיפור כי זה מתואר מנקודת מבט של ילדה ובתמימות כזו שאם היה בזה חלק עצוב אני כמעת בתוכה שאני הייתי בוכה
I liked the story because it is described from a girl's point of view and with such innocence that if there was a sad part in it I would almost be in it that I would cry
