Today we are given time for our 20% project and so far we haven't been blogging as much. We have been busy practicing for the Cahsee, this week and last. Now we are done and ready to blog. We turned in our volunteer papers and now we are ready for them to process them.
Today Elizabeth and I are filling out the papers for the Nursing home. I have been making my own personal stops to the Nursing home with my family. My grandma is staying at the one by the mall so when i have the time I visit other elderly there.
Today my partner Elizabeth and I have came to a conclusion that we will just be sticking to just helping out at the Nursing home. We decided we should just focus on one main idea and give it all our attention. We already have the paperwork and we will be filling that out asap. Elizabeth's mom works at the nursing home Country Villa so she will be helping us out too.
Toady Elizabeth and I are working on a schedule where we can go visit the children at the hospital. We want to make a schedule where it would fit her mom's schedule because she will be our driver.
Well today is 20% day and my partner Elizabeth is here but last week she wasn't. I really want to step it up on our project and start making improvements. I say this because it is already going to be February and I want to make sure everything comes out great in the end. But yes i do understand that to get to your goal you have to go through some obstacles.
Today Mrs. Spurlock is viewing our 20% project. She is also grading us on how we have improved and seeing if we have a blog for every Friday. So far we have everything but a picture.We will get an image with her on Monday because today is a very busy day.
Over the weekend I was working on our five month plan for our 20% project. I made changes on our presentation since we might be doing something new. We are still looking for a mentor but we want to make sure we have the presentation ready before we introduce anything to a mentor.
Today in class we are given time to do our 20% project in English. We have not found a mentor yet but we are thinking about changing our idea. Since our project is not going how we planned it is still early in the year to change our idea. We are working on our 5 month plan and so far we are getting things caught up.
Today my partner Elizabeth is not here but I am currently working on new ideas to help improve on our project . I want this project to really impact these kids and for what they get out of this to stick with them where ever they go .
Some thoughts I had was provide food and drinks and maybe a handfull of prizes for the students .
The day of my pitch day , last Friday , was exciting for me . I was anxious to see everyone's presentations and ideas of the 20% project . I was a little nervous at first talk in front of everyone but then i seen everyone else go; so i got the idea that it didn't look so bad. I enjoyed watching my classmates presentations , some i thought were really fascinating . A lot of my classmates had some really cool ideas , even a few i thought i would have done .
When i went up there with my partner, Elizabeth , we were nervous to see who will go first or if we would be loud enough . After we were done presenting our presentation we were glad we got it over with .I feel like we did well with our presentation . We dressed professional and read every slide as good as perfect as we could. I can't wait to get started and blogging more about our project !
