    What I did this class waslook at the 8th graders hall of fame and we filled out a survey on the class and if we knew somebody that could come in and present. To improve my learning I can go to bed early so I don’t feel sleepy and I also can stop what I am doing to listen to the teacher instead of multitasking.

  2. Adrianna Trenkamp


    What I did today is I watched two videos and then i filled out a form. It was OK because it was fast and easy. The videos were OK but they were kind boring.

  3. Zoe Aschenbrenner


    What I did during class was take the surveys and visit the pages like parent info and student hall of fame. Class was easy today, so my strengths and weaknesses didn’t have a huge role today, and I was successful with only one setback. I had to use my chromebook because my computer still wouldn’t let me log in. What I learned was that I am clearly a visual learner, and not much of a audio learner. To improve my learning I can focus more on taking notes, since it fits my learning type.

  4. Rebecca Kilburg


    1. During class we worked on surveys and telling Mrs.Weber what we like to do.

    2. Today my strengths were getting things done on time and nicely. My set back we getting to class a little late.

    3. Pay attention more and get ready right away.

    4. Try to do more extra curricular activities.

    Today we took a survey on how we learn best to our ability and we wrote about our interests. During this class I learned that I like writing and that I know my future plans. I feel that my strength is writing. I feel that I could also be successful in writing.

    Today we watch 2 youtube videos, and did surveys. The surveys were about us, and they were kind of hard because you had to think about what ur career is going to be. I liked it a lot.

    Describe what happened or what you did during class- we watched 2 videos and I took 2 surveys
    Interpret how things went by using one (or more) of these terms:
    Strength & Weaknesses- I think one of my strengths is doing stuff on the internet, one of my weaknesses would probably be things like coding
    Successes & Setback- success is when you get your assignment done and got a good grade on it. A setback would be falling asleep while doing your homework and not finish
    What have you learned due to this experience? That I am a tactile learner
    Answer one (or more) of these questions:
    What can you do to improve your learning? Study more
    How will you extend your learning past what is expected?

    We took the survey and that text to see what way we learn better. We are getting our jobs today and we might start training.

  9. Sofia Hinke


    Today i watched the two videos with the class first. Then i did the two surveys. Everything went good. On some of the questions on the second essay i was confused, but i asked some people around me and figured it out.

  10. Blaze Foreman


    Today we were doing forms for Mrs.Weber to know us some more and where we are at in Learning wise. I thought It was really fun and good to do its a strong thing. I think I could improve my learning by listening better maybe.

  11. Emily Bowman


    Today in class we did a few surveys that helped us find out our types of learning. I will use what I learned in this class to help me with other classes because I learned what type of learner I am.

  12. Teresa Paulsen


    Today in class we learned how you were going to grade us. Then we took a short test that told us about what type of learner we are. after that we filled out something to tell you about ourselves. This will help me in the future to figure out the best way for me to understand something.

    I found a couple of jobs for me that I think I can do good at. I was successful at finding three jobs for me I don’t think I have any weakness. I learned that I was a tactile learner. By knowing I am a tactile learner by improving my learning I can always do something creative to make it easier.
