Hey, welcome back to my blogs! We have already been through one whole quarter and a couple weeks into the second quarter. Last quarter was great, and I bet this quarter will be even better. For this blog we have to write about how this year has gone for us. Have we liked it and what are some things that are different. This year in media definitely has been different then last year, but it has been very fun too.
First off, this year in media has been different because we only have 13 students. Most second year students left, some sixth grade students left, and the eighth graders went onto high school. Only having 13 students means a lot more work. It means that we have to announce more, we have to do radios more often, and we have to do more behind the scenes morning announcements stuff. Having 13 kids in the class is good too. It is good because we get to have more chances to do more projects. We might get noticed or asked more to do extra credit projects. Also we get to bond more and we get to learn more about each other since we have less people.
Secondly, we don't have any sixth graders in our class. Having no sixth graders to me I think is a down side. I wish we had sixth graders so we could teach them at the very beginning so they will know what to do when we are gone. Now we will never have anymore third year students. The couple sixth graders from last year, including me, will be the last third year students ever. Having third year students are great because you get to learn something new every year. Also not being able to have sixth graders brings down the amount of students we have in our class.
Lastly, I feel like our class has bonded even better than last year. Last year we made a lot of students so I don't think we were able to bond as well. Also last year I don't think we bonded as well because we didn't do as much activities. We didn't do as much things to make us get to know each other. This year we did a lot of different activities. An activity that we did that I enjoyed was that we did work for an hour then we hung out and watched a movie. I like going and doing those things and hanging out together because we get to learn more about people. We get to learn more about what they like to do.
In conclusion, I think this year has had it's ups and downs. At first I thought this year wasn't going to be as fun since we had less people, but so far this year I've had a great year. I learned so much more since we had a smaller class. I've even enjoyed the class more then last year. Last year I didn't think it was as fun, but this year I really enjoy it. I think I enjoy it more because I've gotten to do more projects by myself so I got to learn more. This year has been so fun so far and I bet it will get even better as the year moves on!
