reshaping my character
In our first Unit with Mr.Perez, we learned about reshaping character.
We did a project about how people reshape our characters. I learned that it takes many people to build a person's life. It takes a village to raise a king so that is what that Unit was about.We learned how other's lives were shaped and how they reshaped their characters. It allowed us to show actually what has impacted us.
In the Beginning of Sixth Grade I had no idea what Text Annotations were. Now I know that this is required for future school classes. An annotation is a meta data ( a comment, explanation, presentational markup) attached to text, image, or other data. Often, annotations make reference to a specific part of the original data. This helps me by expanding my vocabulary. I can look through the text and spot words that i don't know. I would later look those words up to increase my knowledge. It also allows me to read the text more thoroughly and make it easier to answer questions.
