Household Garden

Our team and Mr. Ros Mao

This is the first exploration of the new year and it is called Household garden. Household Gardens is a project which is trying to promote organic  vegetable in Cambodia also try to identify the problem why we import a lot of vegetables from outside and why we can’t afford the vegetables inside our country. For the past years, Cambodia has imported vegetables from other countries such as Vietnam and Thailand. Right now the local needs to import 140 tons to fit the demand of people, and we can only produce 400 tons inside the country. But people believe and think that a lot of vegetables in local are chemical and most vegetables that chemical are from the import of other countries. This exploration is focused on how we can help the community grow more vegetables for local by started with a small garden in each house so that they won’t need to buy vegetables from local market which can also avoid them from scared of chemical vegetables. But this is going to be a long term exploration so the first round of this exploration will be about us studying technical vegetable plantation such as nutrients needed for plants (NPK), the symptoms of deficiency NPK, organic compost, liquid fertilizer, organic pesticide, seed selection, chemical versus non-chemical vegetables, and harmful effects of chemical use on vegetables and we hope to write a manure at the end of the round about all of the technical vegetable plantation to help the farmers learn. We also have a trip to SomboSabay which is a community in Takeo province who plant organic vegetables and organic compost. We go there to learn about some technical organic vegetable planting and also learn about organic compost and liquid compost. We also go to Mr. Ros Mao house who teach us about his own way of planting organic vegetables and  also learn about organic pesticide, Organic compost and liquid compost. After we come back we started to plan for planting our own garden in our school where we divided into 4 groups and plant two vegetable per group. My groups plant Okra and bitter eggplant and we need to try the technique from Mr. Ros Mao and SomboSambay in order to know if the technical work for us so that we have an example for the farmer before we go and teach them.  

Multimedia StoryTelling

We can tell a story from a lot of different ways. We can tell the story by picture, video, text and more but one of the ways that we can tell a story is through the map. Map is a diagram that helps represent the are of land that we wanted to explore. And we also can tell a story through the map by looking at it and see how to do the places in the map change throughout the year and this is the change that I have been looking at

Here is the link to the picture

The places that I look at is located in Preah Sihanoukville which is one of the provinces in Cambodia country. In this picture, I mostly focused on the island that is near to the coastal of Preah Sihanoukville. In December 2007 the island is like an island that abandoned and there is no bridge for tourist to come and visit. But when we look at the island again in February 2018 we can see a lot of development on the island. There is a road in the island and right now people are building a bridge to connect to the island and we can see some house for the tourist to stay and a very beautiful beach on the island too.

By this picture, I think a lot of places in a different part of the world started to develop for tourist to come and check. and most of all I can see that people started to get more creative and started to create something cooler and more attractive for the tourist around the world.

Independent Literacy

This is the last round for year 3 and in Literacy is different. This round theme for Literacy is Make the most of your learning. What is making the most of your learning? Make the most of your learning is meant to use all of your time wisely for example if you have done the exercise in class early you should use that time to get more practice and do other class work. So this round our teacher let us plan and organize our own schedule of learning literacy. In literacy, you have a lot of things to do like reading book, practice writing and stuff that you can fill it in with your time. At the same time, our teacher also gives us some task that you need to complete at the end of the round like novel study which where you need to choose one novel to read and at the end of the round you need to review it on a table discussion with other people. One more is How I change Cambodia which is a reflection that every student need to write at the end of each year. We also switch the role of our Affirmation to get everybody to practice and said some word before class started. For me, I enjoy reading some article from Newsela which is a website that you can read online. There are a lot of articles that you can read and also a lot of different topics that you can choose and for me, I love to read about action and about sport. When we finish there’s also a place where you can take a quiz and different level of reading depend on how much you read. I think this is a very good Theme and also change our perspective from going to class and always ask teacher what we are gonna learn today and instead everyone just come into class, plan their day and started straight working. We also working on how to be happy essay when you choose one topic and you write how to be happy with it and my essay is about How to be happy when you with your family and here are the essay:


How important is family to all of you? Well, Family is very important to all of the people. they give you birth, they feed you, they care you, they let you to school, and they teach you. But one of the most important things that everyone should be noticed and be careful is that every day they’ll grow older and older! And They won’t be with you forever. There will be a time that you will have someone in your family pass away for some reason and when that happens, a lot of people just sit and blame themselves that they should use more time with family and they wish that they can go back to do something good for their family and because of that, you need to spend your time very wisely with your family and make your life happy with them. This is also my experience throughout my life and I think a lot of people also west a lot of time on other stuff instead of being joyful with their family. So this Essay will be here to share to you that your family is important and this is some steps that you will need to make you and your family having a wonderful time together:


Go on vacation:

When you with your family sometime you want to talk about the experience or the memory that you have with each other. And one of the ways that you can have a lot of memory with your family is a vacation. Vacation can help to bring all of the family together. When you have a holiday break where all of your family together you can bring them to vacation. Take them to the places where they never go before. They will have a wonderful relaxing time together. Try to see what out there around the world, tasting some new culture, some new experience and some new taste of food. The vacation was not just for having a fun time and relaxing, you can also learn something out there. Maybe they never see some new animal before so they can see it right now and that can also be a very fun and meaningful memory of their life. According to ( Vacation are important to family happiness ), they said “ Children having new experiences rates right up there in the family Holiday Association’s list of benefits, clocking in at 98% ”. Not only having a wonderful time with family but also you can learn more new thing about the world. You can be more fun with it like having some camping where you sleep in the tent together, or hiking on the mountain or fishing, swimming, exploring, watching different animal, go to the zoo and some more good activity too.


Take yourself away from your phone and Computer

A lot of time when technology is getting better and better. People started spending a lot of money on technology stuff like computer, mobile phone, and more. Each year more and more people started to buy technology stuff and not only adult that using these technologies, but They also bought it for their children. And all of you know that right now in technology, they started to create a social media app which allowed you to have chat with each other and make new friend from different places around the world. But people think that social media is very important because it can help them meet other people around the world and they can learn more about what going on in the world and also they can know the news that is happening right now. But At the same time, people forget one thing that is also important to them too and that it’s family. This is a big problem and all of you should be looking back and remind yourself about your family. I’m pretty sure if you use that time to go out and have some fun with your family it will be much happier then just sitting and keep scrolling and typing to different people. And when you spend to much time on it you will lose the connection with your family which they are like different people from you. They won’t have that much time with you anymore. And also they started to be bored and soon it will turn to a bored family which also affect your children learning. Your children also started to care about you when they get older so they will be not that much focused on studying because of the family didn’t have much good time with each other anymore. So turn the point back take that hobby out of your mind. Having a personal phone and computer is just like you are alone, you are right now trying to get yourself out of the family to make sure spend a lot of time with family than with your technology.

Having a Meal together

   For many parents, Having Meal together is a big and strong connection to the family. When they eat something together, they can have a talk with each other about the work, maybe the problem that they are facing right now. For parents, they ask their children about how it’s going to school and they can have a good conversation with each other. You can watch TV together and it would be happier if you cook the food and you eat it in your house. People try to get themselves not to cook a lot of things and that also not bringing a lot of happiness into family. Sometimes the food that you buy from a market or restaurant is not so delicious as you cook by yourself. And that because you are the one who knows the taste that your family like. It doesn’t matter if it Breakfast, Lunch or dinner but I suggest the best meal to eat together is for Dinner. After a long day of work, people getting really tired and that the time where you can sit together and ask everyone how was their work goes. You can be more creative by talking about some exciting thing that happens through the day or maybe something that is funny, it can be a joke or story that you have. According to ( Why the family meal is important ), they said that “ If dinnertime is an interesting time of day for your child, he is going to learn how to sit, and say, “How was your day?” and “What was the best thing that happened to you today?” and other”. You can also make it look nicer if you have some creativity with it like take the table to the outside and find a place where you can see a very clear of the moon and you can surprise them too like you bought them a present or show them something you did for them too.


Make work and home life balance

A lot of time with people that are having so busy at work. They sometimes left their family home, go on trips, come back home very late at night, etc.They’re not making work and home time balance. Making both work and home time balance is very important. You can’t spend less time on work or else you do not get it done. You also can’t spend less time on home or else your relationship with family will get smaller and smaller. Most of the time people think that work is important but at the same time, when they working, their love and joyful time is when they have a great time with their family. So for this sentence, it already shows you how important is both of this need to be balanced! People can’t stop working or else they won’t have money, and also they can’t spend less time with family or they will not have a happy day with work. But how do you make two of this balance? Well, This is some guide. First, one that I want you to do is always join your family when dinner. Like I said on one of the steps

( Having Meal together ) having dinner with the family is very important. You can ask each other story about what’s going on for the hold day. And you can also surprise them by leaving the work early and come home before they do and just set up the place and making dinner for family and I promise your family will be so surprised and love you even more. The second one is Present, All of the kid love present and they will love present even more if it comes from one of their family members. So it doesn’t need to be really expensive stuff! It can be a thing that your kids love like Toys, Ball, dolls and more stuff for kids. And also you can buy it for your husband/Wife too like Ring, necklaces, Watch, Shirt, Pant and more of the stuff that your Husband/Wife like or want. And There are more but this is stuff that I want you to try first!


There are more thing and more way that can make you and your family happy but this is some guide for those of you that are really stuck and don’t know what to do when you with your family. I really encourage you to step up and help to see all of the problems that your family have and help them solve it together ( especially if you are children ). When you did something, not success or you lose something, they are the people that you can trust and always stay there and help you until the end. So be sure to treat them as they treat you and Please help share this to your friend and people nearby you to also help convince them to have more time with their family and also help prevent people from losing their connection with their family. During your holiday or free time that you have, make sure you spend time talking with your family, don’t spend to much time on social media and help yourself build up a wonderful connection with your family. Hope this is helpful for you Thank YOU!!!!


Newton’s First law

We learn a lot of thing in Stem class this round. But one that I’ve chose to write is about Newton’s first law. Now there are three Newton’s law and the first one that I’m gonna tell you is called Newton’s first law of motion. Now Newton’s first law of motion states that an object’s motion will not change unless an unbalanced force acts on the object. So that mean that If the object is at rest, it will stay at rest. If the object is in motion, it will stay in motion. Example like if you kicking a ball, the ball will alway moving unless it hit with the wall or with the ground. We did some example with each other and also think of time that you have been use Newton’s first law. We did some exercise to make us more understand of Newton’s first law. We also read some article about Newton’s first law in CK12 to help us learn too.

និពន្ធដោយ៖ កវី ភារម្យ និងកវី ហ៊ុយគា


Math in this round was focused on a lot of different topic. But we got a new website that help us summary or know what we gonna learn in the week and that website is Joinpd. Joinpd is like a google presentation slide plus the google classroom, it aloud student to join the code that were show by the teacher and student can go to Joinpd website and put the code in to run the presentation. The first thing that we learn in math this round is about rate. Now rate is a special ratio in which the two terms are in different units. For example, if 12 people equal to 6 team, 1 team equal to 2 people. We do a lot of practice with exercise and when we finish we alway go to review it more in Khanacadermy and at the end of the week we also play some Quizzz too.  


This round in Technology/Multimedia is so different. We didn’t learn anything new but instead, we go back to look at all the lesson that we have to learn throughout the year. And try to remember it back. Ohh also this is the last round for Multimedia this year, so that means we won’t have this class anymore.


So after we look back to all the project that we have been learned and also working on, Our teacher let us chose on one lesson that we have learned and try to create a product at the end of the round. There is also a lesson that we have learned such as Researching skill, Digital storytelling, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, Adobe Premiere Pro, Python, Photography, Videography and more. After looking through all of the projects that I have been working on throughout the year, I chose to work on Adobe Photoshop which is my personal goal to learn on. It a cool adobe app where we can editing and make all of the effects to make our picture look better. It though in the future we will have time that I need to edit a photo and also I love to design my PC wallpaper so I think this would be a good skill to learn. When I open Adobe Photoshop for the first time in the past few months I forget nearly any tool in the app. So I need to learn about some tool again and watching some video about editing to refresh my mind. And Here is my final product.


Can you guess how many pictures were put in together to make this one picture? Actually, the picture that was putting in together was seven pictures. This whole picture talk about a person that dream to go to another place and wish that he have superpower like you see in the picture he open a doctor strange portal to go to another place and like he call Avengers and X men to come and help him but there still a problem like Pennywise and the time is going to fast so that why he wanna go to other places. So this is the meaning of the picture.


For me if I want to design a picture or something like that I would choose to create like a meaningful poster where like you can not just see all of the meaning of the picture for just look at it but you need to use your imagination and your thinking to identify what the true meaning of the picture would be and that why I chose to create this picture. I enjoy working on something like this because it makes me thinking of something deeper and you can get more creative by just putting a lot of pictures together to make something that is more cooler. Between this creation I also get some issues and the most important one, I think is because I still don’t understand the use of each tool in photoshop yet. Sometime I get confused to use another tool that I don’t want so it makes my picture not the way I want it and I just need to do it again and again so this is one of the challenging parts for me but I think I just need to take time with it and I think If I do more stuff with it, it will make my mind remember it.


We started the new unit in math this round which is “Percentage”. The percentage is something we use a lot on Date survey, Discount, statistics. And it important to know about it. It also has a connection with Fraction and Decimal and that the confusing part for me when we doing word problems in class. Sometimes the teacher also let us create a game about Percentage and put it for other students to play. We do a lot of exercise in the workbook and also play some game and activity to help us understand and get more confident with it.



This round we got to practice a lot with code in python. And because there are a lot of things to learn in this code Language we need to continue it to this round too. First of all, we got to introduce to the new website called Trinket which is the website that helps us to practice and write different code language. So we use it for exercise and also the assignment teacher post in. We often started a class with a new lesson that our facilitator will be explained to us before we started to do some activity with it.

Sometimes our facilitator having us an independent code project where our facilitator assigns us to do one code project for one week. and one of the projects that I love is a Rock, Paper, Scissor games. It not really different from the Rock Paper, Scissor games that we play every day to it just you will play against the computer which you will chose Rock Paper or Scissor and the computer also have a random code to chose Rock Paper or Scissor. You have three chance to play before game is over. We always help each other to solve the problem with the code and find the mistake that we make and we did a lot of communication in class too.

Acid and Base

Stem this round was learning about Acid and base. Before we learning deeper into acid and base first we learn about the solution. What is the solution?  This is not a means of solving a problem or dealing with a difficult situation solution. This solution is a mixture of two or more substance together. We got to do a lot of activity with it and also reading some article on CK12 to make us get more understand and one of the things is we got to do a PH testing too. At the end of the week, we also play some game to help review the lesson that we learn and we all have fun with it.
