T1W8- Silent Reading

Silent reading is very important to me, because as I read a book, there will be interesting sentences for me to learn and to use them in my composition. Even my Synthesis & Transformation and Comprehension Open-Ended can improve on it.

Silent reading happens... EVERYDAY. Why do the school choose Silent Reading and not Reading Aloud? Because Reading Aloud would create noises all around.

I like to read, especially Silent Reading. I can read on my own, without telling others about my book's content. I like to read Comic Books and Story Books. Comic Books have illustrated pictures for me to understand the story better and is funny. Some of the Story Books have pictures and some don't. Those that have pictures and no pictures are both my favourites.

According to the first paragraph, reading will improve my studies. Science books will improve on my Science. Maths on Maths, English on English and Chinese on Chinese.

I have a book to recommend and hope that it will arrive soon: Geronimo Stilton Book #37: The Race Across America. I don't know why, but this book takes too much time to be published. St. Patrick's Day is over, right? But, why does that book not published yet?

That's all!

T1W7-Activities Outside School

Activities outside school? Yes, I have one. However, do "outside school" counted as "at home". Of course...Yes!!

At home, at no fixed time, I have violin tuition. According to the previous sentence (no fixed time) tells me that there is no fixed time! It can be anytime, perhaps Thursday or Friday. But, usually, it is on Thursday. Usually about 5pm to evening. This activity will take 45 minutes.

My violin tuition consists of Theory or Practical. I had taken the Grade 2 Theory Exam and guess what? I got a high distinction. 97 marks out of 100... of course! How can it be 97 out of 200? And my latesr Grade 4 Theory Exam was held on 14 March 2009, yes, just passed by 9 days. My teacher told me that the papers are sent to England. And, the results are noted down in the Internet. Very complicated!!

These exams are important... in many ways. However, I included one only: At secondary school, a programme called Music Elective Programme will appear. I wanted to join the Music Elective Programme, so I have to pass the Grade 4 Theory Exam and my oncoming Grade 3 Practical Exam this year before it is too late.

I enjoyed this tuition a lot and my teacher will revise the Exam Pieces I will be playing in July. Maybe in July.

That's all!

T1W6-Passion For Learning

What is Passion For Learning actually? It is whether you really have the passion to learn.


To show Passion For Learning, perhaps on a Science topic "Adaptations to The Environment", you don't understand some of the contents and you really want to learn about it and ask teacher, parents, others for help and even find information on INTERNET. That's Passion For Learning!


I have Passion For Learning. What proof do I have? Firstly, I have two VOCABULARY BOOKS and everytime I approached a word that I've never seen or don't know, I would check the dictionary, let it be the book dictionary or the electronic dictionary. Secondly, I have Passion For Learning, when I revise through my work. Isn't that Passion For Learning?

Okay! That's all!!
