What I learned in aboriginal education is basically from seepizza and touching spirit bear.From seepizza i learned a lot about residential schools.Like how they assimilate the students.Assimilation means when you try to change someone's personality or who they are.Residential schools humiliate children and seperate them from there sibilings.From touching spirit bear I learned about the spirit bear and how it helps change peoples ways.Like when Cole was really bad and did not care about anything.Then Cole started to care about everything after he got attacked by the spirit bear.I learned that they do dances that celebrate the different animals and what they represent.I also learned all the activities the aboriginal people enjoy to do.

Dear,Mom you are very caring and loving!I appreciate the things you do for me.Like buy me things and look out for me.I enjoy spending time with you when we go place.Like walks or going to the store.You work really hard for the things you do for everybody
Guess what?I just bought white vans!Yesterday i went to the store and bought white vans.I had to find my size because i am a size 8 and some stores don't have that size.But i found some at Zumez!Now I can't wait to go to school and walk around while people around me yell:Damn,Daniel,back at it again with the white vans!feisty man,feisty!
Running is My favorite sport of all time because i enjoy doing it every day.My favorite runner is Usain bolt sprints and David Rushida for long distance.I am a really fast runner because i have strong leg muscles.The reason i have strong leg muscles is probably because i used to ride my bike every day and i also run everyday.I am really focused when i run and it makes me feel great.The things I think of when I run are:whats ahead of me,who is behind me,persevering myself and getting first place!I do track and field every year to test my strengths in running.Same with cross country.But i enjoy track and field more.I can't wait to watch the Rio Olympics!
I think spring is a good time of the year because all the plants and flowers are growing and blooming and also there is spring break.Since it starts to get sunny and warm and i could play outside until eight o clock at night.What i enjoy doing in spring is usually playing outside and going on vacation.The best things about spring are the weather,vacation,plants and easter.This spring i went to kelowna and also celebrated Easter
1.I believe people can change. Because if someone does something bad,they can learn from their mistakes.Also people would feel bad for what they have done.So they could change and not do it again.
2.I don't think bailey should have a second chance.Because she is a rude person.she told everyone about a divorce that was not true.Like come on!
3.It would take a lot to change because of all the things bailey said.Because when she said the thing about the divorce and if her parents found out,bailey would probably not be aloud to have any friends.
I am proud of Being the fastest runner in the class.Doing good at math.and spelling.I enjoy running alot because its relaxing.What I did well is get every spelling test exceeding.Also doing good in decimal math.I loved when we wrote blogs and did are science projects.what I could improve on is writing blogs.My goals for term 3 are finishing the rest of the map for running.I also want to do good at the next unit in math.I hope we have a next good term.
On Friday we watched Inside Out.It is a an animated movie about emotions.There are five emotions Joy,Fear,Disgust,Anger and Sadness.Joy is the emotion that makes Riley (the main character)happy.Fear watches out for Riley and keeps her safe.Disgust is what makes Riley cool and dress well.Anger is Riley's inner devil who has a bit of a temper.Sadness is always sad but turned out to make Riley think before she ran away.So the main part of the movie was that Riley's family moved to a different house in a different city (Minnesota to San Francisco).In her mind Joy and sadness get sucked out of her mind into where the old memories are and her islands and the abyss.After they are sucked down they run into Bing Bong Riley's imaginary friend.After they go through a bunch of bad things they fall into the abyss and Bing Bong dies.
Kindness to me is something that is a way of doing something something nice,For example someone would be kind by saying hey I like your shoes or making someone feel good.Why show kindness?You should show kindness because its nice and it makes people feel good.Others should be kind because its something everyone should have.
