I have learned more about colors and how you can make new ones with different textures, shades and tones. It has been a challenge for me to make shapes for the outlines of my drawings because I do not have very much artistic ability. I keep trying to make better drawings though. I think I have gotten better at art this year.
I have enjoyed reading and writing notes this year in music class. It has helped me get better at playing the xylophone for I can read the notes faster and more accurately. I like listening to different types of melodies and beats to understand more about different varieties of music. We have listened to many different types of bands so I know how creative you can be with music.
I have successfully learned different sports and new athletic activities. Cartwheels in gymnastics were a challenge for me. Everything else was fun and easy. I have enjoyed helping teammates in the team sports we have played. It has been fun learning new techniques in sports like volleyball.
