School. Why should we have school? Is it important? Why should we have school? Lots of those questions come up. I think we need school for not just education but maybe for life. If we don’t learn the things we do in school than we won’t have it in general. It really comes down to that. School can be consider a job for kids. Is it worth our time? Yes. The reason I say that is because if we didn’t then we wouldn’t know how to read and practically speak. Well some people might argue that they can just home school their kids but that is just like real school just less kids. Homework can be something big that might come up at home. Because of homework we make our brains push its thinking witch helps us in life because we have to be creative in life. But, because of school we have homework. Homework can push our thinking in every subject, for example reading. We use it a lot in life. We read signs to visit family and friends, we read books that make us go into a different world, it shows us how to write and spell, witch pushes us into writing. School can do that all. Connects us through everything.

One passage was all I had to do. Easy right? Wrong! Out of all the books I read? That is a lot of books! But it was easy picking the book. The hard part was the actual passage. The book I chose is called Pivot Point. I did a blog post earlier this year but right now I am reading the book Split Second which is the second book. Anyway, Pivot Point is my absolute favorite book! This was the passage I chose: “Laila, promise me you will give this to me on the fourteenth and won’t open it before then.” I write the date on the outside of the envelope. ” Promise? I’m trusting you with this.” She widens her eyes like she thinks I’m overreacting. “All right. I promise.” The reason I chose that passage is what Addison did to her best friend Laila. She made her make a promise that Addison will forget. How will she forget? Well that is up to you. You have to read it to find out. I think that was a big thing to trust your friend on. I recommend the book for sure! The first book is called Pivot Point and it is by Kasie West. The second book is called Split Second by Kasie West. If you want a good Si-Fi book then this is what you should do! Thanks for reading!
Oh and can you put down where you live so we can put you on our class map? Thanks!
Teachers can help students have a voice by being caring, motivated, and the use of technology in the classroom.
To begin Teachers can help kids by being caring. If the students learn to speak up and use their voice much younger they could use it to be heard and known and be what they want to be when the student grows up. If teachers be caring then the student will want to speak up more. The teachers might need to make the lessons hands-on more or just to get the children into the lesson. That is just one way for the students to learn and understand what the teacher is saying and teaching. People might argue that students can’t learn because of how easy their homework is and that they don’t want to study, but I would say, it is not that it is not hard but that it is not fun. Most students don’t like homework. If teachers make the homework fun, interactive, and something that they like to do then they might make it challenging but fun. Students also like it when they get homework slow. What I mean is that students like it when you get a little bit of homework about every day and not piles of homework. If teachers do that then the student will want to go over the homework in school but also participate in it.
Next, Teachers can help students by being motivative. Teachers should help students speak up when they are younger so they can speak up to get comfortable. If teachers help out with students have a voice, it could help the student’s social life that would be important in middle school and high school. If the student has a voice than it would help the student’s grades because if the student interacts with the learning than the student will learn more. The students will get into the learning that will help get the student involved. Some teachers help kids by saying, pull your own weight, which simply means you’re doing your part of the work but you’re not doing it all. It helps kids meet kids in table groups get to know each other. Like in science, some teachers might have lab groups so they can interact with other students. It motivates them to get in the group and feel like the student has a voice.
Finally, Teachers can help students by encouraging the use of some technology
Skype. It can help interact with other students in the world. If you do presentations to show or if you do something where you get to show something and get to get to know a class and share exciting news. Just so your students can talk and speak to one another. Blogging. It would be a good one too. If students could use blogging to put their feelings through it could let them have a voice through the world in computers and technology. . It can really let them have a voice. To talk with others and then get comments back and know where they came from and just to get to comment back and forth can let students have a voice. From this experience, I have learned that a great teacher is to be caring, motivated, and to encourage the use of technology in the classroom.
Student’s voice. How? How can they have a voice? Teachers have them speak up when they are much younger. If they learn to do that, that will change a lot. From not having a voice to becoming something unbelievable. If the student isn’t comfortable then teachers need to speak up and help them. Not exactly do it for them but if they look like they want to say something but never ever say anything then the teacher could say some things that are comfortable for them. They could have a bigger voice but they don’t. Not yet. Why not? Why not have a voice? To become something. To be heard and be known.
Thanks for reading! Hope you liked it!
Our class can get noisy when were transitioning. When we go to a computer lab or lunch. It sometimes get too loud that can’t even hear myself! We get noisy just because I think that we have so much energy that we just have to tell some one and just can’t keep troll of it. We need to hold it just a little longer especially if we are going to lunch. We can talk outside or in the lunch room. When we are given a lesson we don’t talk unless we raise our hand but that is why we usually talk during transitions! Thanks for reading!
