孩子們的自編自導影片,挺有趣的! Owen還有叫爸爸來客串呢!^^ Kids created a short clip of something they came up with the idea, filmed it, and did the post production. It's only 30 seconds. Check it out, it's quite fun and interesting! Owen even got John to play a small part! Haha!

Jump the gun

Submitted by Jenny on Tue, 07/21/2015 - 11:53

Have you jumped the gun before? Has anyone said that to you before? When you have jumped the gun, it means that you have done something early and prematurely.

A: Cindy looks unhappy this morning.
B: She must not finished her assignments last night.
A; Don't jump the gun to make that conclusion. She might just be tired.

In this example, A is tell B not to make the conclusion too early without understanding entire situation.

What is parallelism?

Sample sentence: I recommend relaxing activities such as reading, watching TV, seeing a movie.

Rewrite:
swimming and running.
Relaxing activities can help people to forget their worries, handle mental pressure, and lower their stress levels.
Many people like relaxing activities because they want to forget their stressful day and because they want to feel relaxed.

Why do we write using this technique?
Using parallelism improves writing style and readability, and makes sentences easier to process.

20150714 science class - 探索溫度與熱的科學&動手設計製作「保溫瓶」與「環保隔熱房屋」創意科學實驗作品

這星期我們做了自己的保溫瓶! 用各種不同的材料來將瓶子包裝起來,然後,在大太陽下測試,很多孩子的冰塊在五分鐘後,都還沒溶掉,作的很成功!
In science class today, we made our own thermal bottle. By using light reflective material, kids layered their plastic bottle. They also created their own design. Then, we tested the bottles under hot sun by putting ice inside and see if the ice would melt after 5 minutes. Most of the kids had great results!
