Concluding the Journey - by Augustine

 Summer Learning Journey

In The SLJ ( Summer Learning Journey ) this summer I have learnt a lot about protecting animals and the environment. The thing with this SLJ is that it gives me different ideas and experiences some of the works are very hard but the information given helps me more. 

I was surprised to know so many new words and new things along this journey. It was so hard to figure out the answer to some of the problems and so many words that I could not understand. I worked hard and I feel good about it. I have discovered so many other things too.  

I was really concerned with how much rubbish that the people of the earth has created. I can help the environment by picking rubbish, convince family and friends to help me clean up Earth, and write an article or a poster to help promoting the idea. 

PS: Thank you SLJ for helping me learn those interesting and hard activities. I am loving it and looking forward to another one at the end of this year.

    1. Hi there Hazel.

      Thanks for your comment. When I began the SLJ I was way behind. So I did 6 activities once a day, and that is how I caught up. Some were hard and some were easy. Some I couldn't understand because so many words I could not understand. But it is a good so I can learn new words.
      I might comment on other comments, but sometimes I am too busy with my chores and I play a lot with my siblings. We only have a few days before we go to school.

      Thanks for your comment.
      Enjoy your day.
