I’m now setting new goals for the rest of the term. My first goal is still typing. I want to be at 70 WPM by the end of the year. My second goal is communication. I practice this by playing the lego game with someone. I want to play with someone and get 2 errors our less by the end of the term. My third goal is going to be my neatness when writing in cursive. I write in cursive at home but my mom said that some of it is hard to read so I’m going to practice every night and become neater when writing so people can read it perfectly.
I have improved my typing greatly in this class. I started out at about 45-50 WPM and I’m not up to 60-70 WPM. I have practiced writing in cursive at home and with my dad and when I first started writing it took me a while and it wasn’t very neat; but now I can write just well in cursive as I can normally. I haven’t had much time to practice the number pad but when I did I did the best I could. When I started out, I wasn’t very good at all using the number pad and I had a lot of errors. Now I can use the number pad and have little or no errors while using it.
Today we worked on our databases again and my query didn’t open for some reason so I had to restart the whole thing, but I did it and made it work. I also helped Ike make his query work.
Today we continued working on our database and I finished mine through 2008. Tomorrow all I have to do is continue through 2011.
Today I learned how to use Microsoft Access and I made an access database for class. It was kind of hard starting out but once I got the hang of it, it was pretty easy and it flew by.
