We still in the process of finishing the Primary Mathematics 5A. This round we learn about area and perimeter, base and height, geometry, and ratio.
Area/Base and height
In area lesson, we learn about how to find the area of the object. There some different sharp that we learn about such as square, rectangle, triangle, 3d abject and also mix shape. A four size shape is really easy to find the area but the triangle is a little bit hard. Base and height is also one of the elements that help to find the area of the triangle to so we do a little practice about base and height. We also learn about the formula or an algorithm to find the area of the triangle. = base*height/2
If you find the area of the object why don’t we find the perimeter too? We learn how to find the perimeter of four size sharp.
For ratio, we usually do our exercise on our laptop. We find the ratio of a different thing. Our teacher gives us exercise on Google Classroom. We practice by finding the ratio of staff and student in our school, the school supplies and also find the ratio of food ingredient.
Technology is the focus of Multimedia class.
This round I learn about the digital storytelling, camera setting, and illustrator. I also learn about the structure of storytelling. It really important that We can write a story in the right structure and the right way. We also do some example of Pixar story structure and also go through some video and article to learn about the different type of storytelling. In class, I also write an example of a Pixar storytelling structure. This is my the story that I write in class when I learn about the storytelling structure.

She hates herself that she hate herself. She come to live here alone she wants to explore herself. The girl still did not reveal her name but everyone love her because she is nice and kind. Then the girl lives happily ever after.
Photography and Videography Skill
In my whole school year, almost everything is included technology. So this round we also learn about photography skill. We learn about the camera setting, How to attach the mic to the camera, the type of shot and how to make your photo look good. We’re doing a lot of fun activity such as picture scavenger hunt, play around with the mic and the camera and other fun activity.
This round Stem we are learning about the chemical bonding. We learn about the three type of chemical bonding. This lesson is a really fun. We watch fun video to help us understand the lesson. Once a week we also have a fun activity that includes a website call Quizizz. Quizizz is a website where we can do fun practice on our computer that we can compete our classmate and also they show us the process of the game on the leaderboard. This round we do a lot of reading and research to understand the lesson and the statement that we learn in class.
This year my exploration is World Renew Community Documentary. My overall view for this exploration is that this exploration is really interesting and fun but a little tired. I’ve been to four villages in Kampong Speu province. I have interviewed a lot of villagers and get more knowledge going on every day and I also have some highlight from the trip. The first one is when I and my team is trying to interview some kid and we meet a girl. After the interview, I have taught her some English and that is also a new experience for me. In the process of making this exploration come to the finish line all of us have to put a lot of effort into it. I am helping the video team to edit and writing script and taking video. The hardest part is to use the program to edit the video. It really hard for me to participate in the thing that I never know before and it a really big experience.
This year we start anew essential about Technology and multimedia. I have a hard time understanding about the algorithm that we use to solve code or any problem that have the same kind of question. In multimedia class we learn about the type of programming, the keyword to that useful for our researching and we also use some new application such as Indesign, Photoshop and Lightroom. What new to me is learning how to use InDesign, and photoshop.
The most difficult one is photoshop. We also learn to create some algorithm for a few problems so brainstorm and get deeper into programming and coding.
2018-2019 is the new school year. I class we also have around theme and this round we are focused on getting to the root, history of English language/ Etymology. The first 7 weeks of the year I have learn about root word and we also study about some history around the world too. We also use some application to help us learning and keep track of our progress. I class we also have some fun activity to entertain us and also some other class discussion. This new year we are doing a lot of researching and discussing. Every week I got a home packet from the literacy teacher. I got a week to finish it. After I turn in the homework packet I got a quiz set we repeat that process about 5 weeks and then it the end of the round. After the round, we move to the new theme.
Making a change for the world and your own country is a really hard job but we all did help be part of changing your community. You change your country by having a different job and using different opinion.
The first round of exploration is the most exciting round. Me and my team have a big journey of making change for Cambodia. Make a book for children and all people around the world to read and know the hidden place and learn more about their own country and also foreigner to learn more about cambodia. Me and my team promote change by getting experience and share them with Cambodia children, adult and other people from other countries by making a Cambodia geography book. We go through a lot of processes such as Researching, trip, interview and more. Cambodia needs a lot of help from all of us the new generation. So we create this book to help making change for Cambodia children to learn more about their culture and their country. We have 4 teams to help make this geography book exist. The four-team go on the trip all around Cambodia and interview the villager to get information and put them together to make the perfect book.
Technovation is the program that offer girlsthe opportunity to step into technology and help change their country. The girl competes each other by creating an application. The application that we made need to help solving problems that the program give us. There are six problems and they are poverty, environment, peace, equality, education, and health. This program help sustains develop the goal for the girl to solve problem and help develop their country. The program goal is to contest all the young women around the world to creative ingenuity and determination. This program also inspire young women to think that they are a big part of changing the world.
I also participate in this program. My team have four five member, and our team name is Green farm. Our app name is Farmer market. Our app help solving poverty problem. The problem that our app help solve is that farmer don’t connect to their costumes. Our app help connect farmer to customer by letting them post their product so the customer that want the farmer product can order. Farmer market help change people life and make their life colorful. No more poverty, Use farmer market right now.
And a part of that technovation provided us the new experience that most girls in Cambodia never try before. There are thousands of girls around the world participate in this program. All team that participates in technovation have their own mentor that help guide them and to teach them how to do basic coding. In the program, we use block code and we all so use the application called App Inventor. In this process, we also have a role. There are 2 roles and they are the business plan and the coder or technical. To understand and create our app is the most difficult thing I ever learn and done. But their a sentence that I really like that is “Girl who code boy who cook.” By Forbes and other News
Plastic is one of the really big problems that the world is facing right now. Around the world people is using plastic and not help recycle them. One city in japan have no trash on the ground the plastic have been recycle and the community is reduce and reuse the plastic. All the trash that can’t be use all go to the trash bin in a neat pile . I hope in future the world will be like that Japan city. I can’t help change the whole world by my own. I have a team who alway support each other. We start to reuse plastic in our school and we will promote our idea to our near by neighbor and our communitie. Our project is about composting, compost is a project that also help with reducing stuff. Compost help reduce waste that come from the kitchen. When we think of reducing we come up with a problem that the our community and the world is facing. We start by brainstorming the idea than we come up with the solution that everyone agrees. To reduce plastic we come up with an idea to reuse and recycle the plastic. We make a list that said what can that plastic use for and what can we do if that plastic can’t be used. We start to collect the trash around our school. Then we divide it into two pile which is recycled and not recycle. Our idea for recycling plastic is to make a mat or bag from the plastic that can be recycled. To reduce plastic we want to make a fabric bag then we give them to our friends and our family. When they got the bag they can start to use less and less plastic. Now in Cambodia a lot of mall and supermarket start to reduce plastic. They stop giving free plastic bag but if the customer wants the plastic bag they have to buy it for 0.049$. When the customer buys the thing they don’t want to spend their money on the plastic bag so they bring their own bag. The customer brings their own bag also a part of reducing plastic. So let start from all of you who read the paragraph. Let clean our planet and help recycle and use less plastic. It all starts from you.
Khmer is my first language and also all Cambodian children should take Khmer class. I learn Khmer 4 hours a week. The first round of this year in Khmer class we focus on writing Khmer poem. For my opinion to write Khmer poem is so much harder than to write english poem. Khmer have a lot of different type of poem and also the different type of poem has a different type of rhyme. This year the theme for the poem is to inspire someone to change their self. My poem is to inspire kids to go to school. The title of this poem is “ When I go to school” and this poem in Khmer.

STEM is also one of the hardest class I ever had in my life I can say maybe harder than math. In STEM, we learn a lot of different more topic and lesson such as technology, physics, earth science and other. Wait do you know what STEM stands for? It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The year of 2018-2019 I start to improve my Stem skill and I learn a lot and I also catch up with all the lesson that the teacher has taught us. This year we focus on learning about physical science. We learn about the atom and other small particles that occur inside matter. We also use some website and article to help us learning and catch up with the lesson.
Math is also one of the hardest class. In the first round of this year, we focus on fraction and it also my least favorite lesson in math class. This year I learn in book 5A and not that hard for me but when it comes to fraction no matter how easy it is but always hard for me. This year it turns out that fraction is ok for me and I can get along with everyone. One thing that new to me this year is mental math. Mental math is the lesson which we only use our brain to figure out the math problem. I can do subtract, addition, and some multiplication with mental math. In math, we also use the different website, programme and some different application to help our learning and also to do an individual practice. We always have some fun activity to do on Friday because of it the end of the week. Math is fun.
