Student Reflection

Two things that I have done well this year are:

Two areas that I need to improve are: My L.A marks and work quality and also My S.S marks and quality.

My goals for the rest of the year are : To try and improve my mark in every class by at least 5%, I know it will be hard but it want to try.

My goals for becoming a better learner: My goal is to study more for tests and also to get all my work done on time and done slowly not rushed.

This is a picture of my hockey player 3D project that I did based on bobby hull.



This is one of the versions of my hockey player project:
Bobby Hull

The great hockey player bobby hull was born the year 1939 on January 3 in Pointe Anne, Ontario. He played his little league hockey in Belleville. He then played junior hockey for the Black Hawks and the St Catharine’s Teepees in the Ontario Hockey Association. Afterwards he joined the Chicago Black Hawks when he was 18. when he started out on the black hawks he first used the number 16 and then he switched to the number 7 after that he changed into his famous number 9 jersey. The reason he switched the number 9 was in tribute to his childhood idle Gordy Howe. Then he got his chance, the black hawks were going to the Stanley cup. So in 1961 he and the black hawks got to go to the Stanley cup.

Now bobby played with a partner and his name was Stan Makita. Now he and bobby had a trick that they did and that was they went and curved their hockey sticks so that the hockey puck would veer of at strange angles and with his and Stan’s ability to use the unpredictability of the curved blades to their advantage, they where almost invincible on the skating rink.

Then soon Bobby Hull got mad that he had such a low pay even when he was a hockey superstar so he said that he would switch to any team for a $1,000,000.00 contract so the Winnipeg jet’s went and said they would give him a 10 year contract for 1 million that he asked for so he agreed so now bobby hull was on the Winnipeg jets and Stan was there also so when they got and the ice they were called the golden and silver jets, golden because of bobby hulls blond hair and amazing speed and silver because it go’s with gold like pancakes and maple syrup. Because bobby joined the jets he was allowed onto the Canadian team for the Olympics.
