Just a few weeks ago, in literacy class, we were preparing for our first reading and language use’s practice SAT. We were doing taking this test on one of the most effective learning website, Khan Academy.
Our tips to on taking this test are to not stress out about the test. Nevertheless, we should start with reading the questions and the given choices first before we do because some of the questions don’t require us to read the whole passage to answer. One of the easier ways is to follow the process of elimination the answer choices. That mean, in each question there will be some obvious answer that is not something that the question wants, so we can eliminate that one out. Most importantly, we should check for the key words in each answer because one word can change the whole meaning of the answer choice.
Another important thing is that we should try to do all the questions even if we are not sure with the answer. After I took the test, I just realized that I left too many questions which will take out a lot of my points. However, if I were to do all of the questions even with guessing, I might have get some more points

Lexile Level (different for each): 860L
Summary (10-12 sentences telling the major ideas; who, what, where when, why, how):
This article is about the polluting the air and it can make people have a disease for their lungs. The smog it blew from China and across the Pacific ocean to California. It’s increasing the ozone in Western States when the ozone from China because they have more and more ozone. When the smog blow from China to California it only take about a week to across the Pacific ocean. It was a bad thing and for the people that live in Western States because it can make them have a bd health. One scientist name Faloona said that the ozone (the gas in the air polluting) is come from transportation like cars, trucks and factories. When the smog have blew from China to California then U.S have add more ozone because in California also the drive the cars and have factories. However This two countries would work together to stop the polluting but U.S need to work harder because the smog not go any where else it just stay in California. Also this mean that the pollution have a lot and it really easy to make us sick and die.
When I read this article, I didn’t that the smog can blow really far like in this article blowing from China and across Pacific ocean and got to California. Also it take a quick time to get that smog to California only about a week. It was hard to believe for me. However, if we have a smog it really bad for our health so we need to take care of yourself more. The cause to make this problem because in China they have a factories and they drive a transportation so it pollute the air a lot.
Would you recommend it? (yes/no): Yes

To people who live in China, Don’t use a lot of the gas if the place that not far so we can you our feet to walk don’t need to drive a car or moto. For the factories they shouldn’t use a lot of gas too

Why can’t Arthur do the card trick again, using the same cards? What is his solution?
Arthur can’t do the trick again so he uses a new strategy but Stanley helps him. This time one audience comes to play a trick with Arthur. His solution is Stanley comes and looks at the audience’s card then he tells Arthur the card that the audience had. Arthur can’t do the trick again because if he uses the same cards then the audience will say that he lied to them. The past tense of lie is lied. I changed it for you.

Arthur tells the audience most of the tricks he didn’t do by himself but Stanley helped him. He does this because he didn’t want to lie to the audience. Also Mrs. Lambchop told Arthur not to lie to other people and it is not good and it is not a good thing or behavior for a kid.
When Stanley is talking to Teddy, what does he say about being invisible? Are they all good things?
Stanley said being invisible no it hard like when he walks on a street or when he walks no one can see him so other people just walk and hit Stanley. Another thing is he just keeps reminding other people where he was or where he is. All of those things are not good because Stanley can get hurt and tired to keep reminding other people.
When you read Invisible Stanley do you think its too hard, medium or easy? How much do you think you understand on a scale of one (nothing) to ten (everything)?
When I read invisible Stanley I think it medium for me but sometime also it hard to understand the long chapter. On the scale of one I think I understand about 7-8.5 because when I read with the group make me easier and when I don’t know something they can tell me.
My last Exploration is Entrepreneurship. In Entrepreneurship class we learn about 3D printing. We also learn a terms that we use a lot in Entrepreneur. The first day we have to think about what is our idea and what we want to do then pick up four best idea to make four group. In each group we have think about a product that we want to make for help people in Cambodia or other countries. My group idea is to make a book standing because we think that it can help people with reading and free their hands. They can do other things while the read the book on our product. When we told Kichong about our idea already we start to do our work. In each group we have different job. My job was to do a blog post and site, Chhoeu was do about the design in 123D Design and Makara she need to write about the Daily that we do everyday. It was hard to make it because when we print out it always wrong. Then we tried to improve it a lot of times and we print it out about ten times until we get a correct one. Then we think that now we have a product already so we just sell it but we don’t know where can we sell it and who is our target audience. One day Kichong told us a good news that Dom will buy 10 products that it can help the students in government school. Dom have bought my group products then on Thursday week six we went to government. We went to government school to tell the students about 3D printing and our products at the last we ask them a question. Then if anyone of them have a right answer the can choose one of TWUM or Climbing products. Before we have a sharation we have a terms test. In that test we need to write how to make a business that in the sentence we need to the terms that we have been learn for seven weeks. I was hard for me because I don’t know the definition for all the terms I just know some of it. However, I thought that I did well on it and I try my best. On Wednesday weeks seven our Entrepreneurship group and two other group went to DI (Development Innovation) for share what we learn in class and what is our products about. It was fantastic because it was the time that Liger to go DI and do a sharation. Also is have a lot of people come and they really enjoy our sharation.
