Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

In school we have been focusing on a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.
1.The difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset is that a fixed mindset means you think it’s only based on natural talent. Also, it means that if you fail at it the first time you give up and don’t try it again. A growth mindset is the opposite where you try something again even if you fail at it at first and keep trying to get better at it. Also, you keep trying and practicing to get better at it.
2.A situation in my life where I had a growth mindset is when I was trying to solve my rubik’s cube. I tried a bunch of different videos but none of them worked for me so I kind of wanted to give up but I didn’t and eventually found one video I liked and spent almost two weeks trying to solve it and eventually I figured out how to solve it. A time in my life where I had a fixed mindset was when I got a skateboard for christmas and I wanted to ride it and when I rode it for the first time I was really bad, I couldn’t turn or do barely anything on it so then I gave up and I never really have tried it again.
3. One area where I would like to have a growth mindset is getting better at my scooter and learning how to do a few tricks on it because all my friends are good at scootering and I find it fun to do lots of cool tricks on my scooter. I’m going to start having a growth mindset is practicing a lot more on my scooter in my garage and practice one trick until I can do it. Another area where I would have a growth mindset is on my 2×2 rubik’s cube because I want to be able to solve more than one rubik’s cube. How i am going to accomplish this goal is first, buying a 2×2 rubik’s cube because my other one broke and by watching a lot of videos and working at it a lot just like my 3×3 rubik’

My home in Montreal

I would choose to build my house in the outskirts of Montreal because I would like to build a house and if I built one in downtown Paris for example there are barely any houses they are mostly in the outskirts. Second, I studied Montreal and I liked the brick on the houses and I think it would be funner to build a brick house, I also don’t really know what the Paris houses look like. Third, I would have more room in the outskirts than downtown. Fourth, I prefer outskirts because I live in the outskirts and I prefer the outskirts more than downtown and for my project I would rather choose the outskirts.

French Assignment

In French class, we did a See-Think-Wonder on the city of Montreal using Instantstreetview.com. Then as a class we made these generalizations:

  1. Souvent, people drive from the outstkirts where they live where they live to the downtown where they work.

2. Souvent, people live in single family homes on outskirts but in apartments in the city centre.

3. Souvent, homes and businesses are separated.

This week at school we did math. In math our topic was algebra. In algebra we learned about input and output machines. When we make our chart for our input and output machines the input is labeled x and the output is labeled as a y. We put the x in handwriting so we don’t get confused with a times symbol. I find algebra really easy but I find it one of the funner topics we have done in math. We also learned about pattern rules and how to write an equation for when you finish your chart.

In P.E two classes got go outside and play soccer, the other class got to stay inside and play badminton. My class went outside on Thursday and we were going to stay inside today but there was a fire drill so we just played rock-paper-scissor games such as rock-paper-scissor splits and rock paper scissor cheerleader.In rock-paper–scissors splits you do rock- paper-scissors and if you win you put your foot back and the person has to always be touching your toe. If you fall or can’t go any further you lose. In R.P.S cheerleader you have to vs someone in R.P.S and if you lose you have to cheer them on until they lose but if they lose you have to hear on that person. When we went outside we played three-ball soccer, it is the exact same as normal soccer but with three balls.

Science

In science class this week we formed crystals from some different ingredients. We took 20ml of each ingredient and stirred it all. Then we added 1 charcoal briquette. We waited a few days and let the crystals grow.

Elise Kwan Reflection

  1. Some things that stood out to me from the presentation was that she had to stay in a hospital for 10 months! Also, I thought that it was crazy that she had had 5 open heart surgeries, 2 brain surgeries and a few minor surgeries. Third, I thought it sucked that she had to stop snowboarding.
  2. Some things I won’t take for granted is my PS4 because lots of people do not have one and will never have one. Something else I won’t take for granted is playing Hockey. Hockey is one of my favourite things to do and lots of kids can’t do it because either they can’t afford it, are in a dangerous situation and could be moving to a whole new country because of war. They could also not play because of medical reasons.
  3. Some things I would take from this and apply it to my own life is to never take things for granted because there may be someone out there who can never do that for example medical reasons or something. Also, if you see someone who maybe looks a little bit different not to make fun of them or call them names because you don’t know what they are going through.

This week at school we did social. In social we studied people that are moving from land to land. We talked about the feelings and what you need to learn when moving from either a new country or place. Some of the things you needed to learn were a new language (depending on where you are moving). Also, you had to make new friends. Something else we did in social was talking about being new. We read paragraphs written from kids who are new to a place and what they were feeling when the moved. Then, we highlighted important quotes from the letter and wrote them on these posters we had then put on the wall.
           Something else we did this week was gym. In gym we played dodgeball and did our dances. We presented our dance on Thursday instead of Monday because I hurt my toe doing the worm on Monday. Today we did dodgeball in gym. I also signed my team up for the dodgeball intramurals. The dodgeball intramurals is where you pick a team of six students from grade 5 ( you must have at least 1 girl). Then you vs other teams from grade 5,6 and some grade 7s! Then the winners move one and the losers are out.

This week in science we learned about solutions, suspensions and the weight of liquids by doing a few experiments. One if the experiments we did to test what is a solution or suspension was having a glass of water and putting stuff in it like salt, sugar, flower and icing sugar. For the experiment to work you had to have a different glass of water for each item. You would then pour the item into the glass of water a stir it for 30 seconds. If you could still see the object it was a suspension and if you couldn’t see the object (it dissolved in the water) it was a solution. For the second experiment you need a graduated cylinder, olive oil, rubbing alcohol, water (dyed, optional) and glycerin. Then we poured the liquids in and watched them separate from heaviest at the bottom and lightest at the top.

In P.E (physical education) we did dance and went skiing. In dance we did just dance, a few dance games and learned how to do the cadillac ranch. We also went skiing on Thursday. During my lesson at Rabbit Hill I learned how to turn better, go on the chairlift and ride the t-bar. I went in to eat and had a cheeseburger with fries.

Common_Seal_Phoca_vitulina

This week in social we wrote our own myths. My myth was about how seals got their tailfins. We had to do a lot of planners. My myth was about 6 paragraphs long with about 5-7 sentences in each. It was cool because I like making up my own stories about something. When we thought we were done we would have to make our beginnings perfect. Then we would do our middle, and then our ending.

                Also this week we did science. In science we had to go through three stations and write kind of like a review and a diagram. In the first station we had to sieve items and separate them onto different parts of the plate. I thought that station worked really bad. On the second station we had to separate rock things and peat moss using water. I thought it worked really well. The final station was the magnet station. We had to separate iron filings from sugar using a magnet. I thought it worked really well. A little bit worse that the peat moss one but still good.his week in s
