I/We think...

That we did a great job starting off for our project. During our project we were thinking we were doing a very good job on this certain project. towards the end of our project we were feeling very proud because we made the best highlight video we have yet even though we are not finished and we were super excited.we made a lot of good progress and we are going way, way faster then we did with our most previous highlight reel. we learned that we could take out certain parts of songs that also helps a lot. We are going to continue looking for songs and videos as best as we can to make our project better and go faster. I you need help with a certain part in your project then we think that certain youtube videos can be a big help to your project. I learned about myself that I am pretty resourceful because I like to make the most out of my materials, I use youtube and people that have this same project for resources. One strategy we used was to find videos first then organize and keep them organized. It made the process of building git much easier, it definitely helped.

End of Year Reflection

At the beginning of the year I realized I was bad at grading myself. I realized I either graded myself too high or too low. I later fixed so that my grades were just for the amount of work I completed. I also realized I was very good at a certain project called Wolf Quest. I felt I did a really good job on that project and gave myself a good grade.
