Where I’m From?

This is also the activity that I have done in my English Literacy class

“I Am From” Poem Template


Adapted by Levi Romero

Inspired by “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon



I am from cookhouse,

from ingredients and dishwash.

I am from the toys under the stair to paradise.

(unknown smell, the taste

I never test, feel I ever feel.)

I am from the Portulaca

The Madras Thorn whose long gone limbs I remember

as if they were my own.


I’m from Chinese and pagoda,

from dried shrimp and white hair.

I’m from love

and complain

and from her new house, she never knows

I’m from banana leaf

Hand-hade toy.


I’m from Chang Meng,

I’m from the first place that I cry.

and standing forest love to sit  

and Chab Chhay

From she shut her eyes never open,

without saying goodbye.

get up at 2 am salty water comes out.


Next to my house is her document place

My parents call it the mean full house

keeping a very good memory with a smiling face

can imagine but can’t be real,

leaving never comeback.

What Is My Name?

A short paragraph I had written in my English Literacy class.

My name

Eng Tieng is the name given to me by my grandma. My grandma gives this name to me because she thinks that my face looks like Chinese and she think that this name match to my face. Tieng means positive, independent, creative, inventive, and ingenious and in Chinese Eng mean five. I used to think that I have a strange name and different from my family’s name and all of my friends’ name. Sometimes they also said that my name is so strange they never hear it before, but some of them also said that my name is sound like a Chinese name. I want my name to sound more like Foreigner’s name more like Anna is a great name. Some Foreigner also said my name wrong, but I like that way they call my name (E-Tieng and more). Now, I think that my name is a great name and it matches my personality really well and it also can represent who I am too.

Deal With It

the codeboard design

For this round in Multimedia class, we are focusing on Phyton. Phyton is one of the computer’s language.  For me, I have zero knowledge of Phyton. I’m never learning it before. After I learn it for seven-weeks I started to know more about it and have more knowledge about it. Sometimes I also feel frustrated and struggle with it. However, I still need to deal with it and trying to understand it more and more until I am able to do it by myself. Every week, there a code board assignment for us to do. Sometimes, I don’t know what to do to get the right answer. So, I ask my friends or my teacher for helping to explain to me. If we have some question or don’t know have to do we can ask our teacher or our friends to help us, but we can’t ask them for the answer. 

This is some example of Python:

While Loop:

count = 0
while (count < 9):
  print “goodbye”
  count = count + 1

Explain: count equal to zero. while count (zero) is smaller than nine print goodbye. And then the computer will read the next code in the next line count(zero) plus one. So, zero plus one equal to one. Because it is a loop so it will repeat until the count equal 9 it will stop print. 







Carbon Is Everywhere

For this round in Stem class, we are focusing on Carbon. So, what is carbon? Carbon is the chemical element of atomic number 6, a non-metal diamond and graphite are the two main forms. Most of the thing contains carbon. Everyone

needs carbon but, carbon also affects climate change. Before I started to learn about carbon I don’t know that Most of the thing contains carbon but, it also affects climate change. We also did some experiment too. The first experiment that we did is the Black Snake experiment.

Enjoyment And Inflexible Math

For this round, we finish our 5A book and we just started 5B after we finish 5A. The first capture of this book is Decimal. We also need decimal in our daily life. When we are shopping or cooking something. For decimal, I can say that dividing by decimals is the inflexible one. However, it is not too unflexible for me it just the hardest one. Learning decimals is joyful sometimes but, sometimes it also unflexible too. But, if you are into it enjoy learning it you will good at it.


Argumentative Essay/ Everyone need access to clean water

Everyone Need Access To Clean Water

Who can live with a happy life without access to clean water? Have you ever seen people living with no access to clean water? How was it? Are they happy with it? And what do they think of clean water? Are they want to drink it? Have they dreamed of having clean water to drink? For me, I never saw people who don’t have access to clean water in real-life, but I know how hard is it to live with no access to clean water. There’re no one can live without access to clean water and no one happy with no access to clean water. Drinking unclean water can affect your health but you need to drink that water to keep you alive even though it’s going to kill you in the future.

Now a day there are a lot of people that living with no access to clean water and those people aren’t living with a healthy and happy life. There are also a lot of people that died from the water-related disease. Most of the countries that don’t have enough resources to clean water the economic in that country grow really slow. No access to clean water affects the whole country because of its citizens, access to clean water and they took a lot of time just try to find water. There are more than 86 millions of people that living with no access to clean and the number of this population are continuing to increase every second.  

Even though, some countries don’t have enough resources of clean water but, the government needs to make sure that its citizens have full resources to clean water and receive the same amount of clean water. Everyone should have access to clean water in order to make a healthy world. There are three reasons why the government needs to make sure that everyone should have access to clean water. It is the government’s job to make sure that its citizens have access to clean water to ensure good health and well-being, education, and economic growth.

People can’t live happily without good health and well-being. But, what if you are unhealthy you have the big disease and you don’t have access to clean water. What can you do? There is only death that we can do but, the government job needs to make sure that its citizens can access to clean water. What word that come to your mind first when you hear access to good health? Is it access to the hospital? According to www.medicalnewtoday.com good health, “refers to a state of complete emotional and physical well-being. Healthcare exists to help people maintain this optimal state of health”. So, access to good health means that you are healthy. Anyway, are you still healthy if you don’t access to clean water? The answer is definitely “ NO ”. There are so many bacterias and hazardous chemicals in unclean water and one of the hazardous chemicals is Arsenic. Cambodia also one of the countries that have the most Arsenic in water. Sa Ang district is one of Cambodia’s district that its water contains a lot of Arsenic. RDI is one of the well known non-government organization in Cambodia that trying to solve a lot of problems. According to Mrs. Ann Hall (the community health disease) said that if the Arsenic already in the body there is no way to remove the Arsenic from the body and it can’t be treated. This organization also help to provide the wells that don’t contain any Arsenic.  This the arsenic documentary in English and click hear if you want to watch the Born Sweet documentary about Arsenic and it in Khmer. Arsenic comes from natural processes and we can’t clean the water the already contain Arsenic. If you drink water that contains Arsenic it doesn’t react until you drink it a days/weeks you will abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea it just the short-term exposure and the long-term exposure it will react 1 to 7 after you drink the water that contains Arsenic year we will thickening and discoloration of the skin. There are more problems that it can cause and it also can make you die at an early age. But, don’t worry there someone trying to solve this problem. The United Nations is the intergovernmental organization which means the International Governmental Organization (IGO) and their job is maintained international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation and is a center for harmonizing the actions of nations. In an article written about the UN goal of clean water and sanitation, the UN hopes that, “By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals in air, water, and soil pollution and contamination (goal#3)” If the water that you use has this chemical, it  isn’t good for your health. It can cause a lot of health issues and the most common one is disability. If there are a lot of citizens in that country can’t access to good health the whole country won’t be developing. So, the government needs to make sure that its citizens have to access to clean water. Because the government has enough ability and money to solve this problem. Even though, the government already provide the well for its citizens but, the water in that well still is unsafe to drink. It a serious problem, no access to good health the whole country won’t be developing and the country won’t developing the world won’t be developing too. Everything Start from small to big even the problem too.

Economic growth is one of the important parts of the country without economic growth the country won’t be developing. Economic growth also related access to good health or access to clean water. No access to clean water can affects the economic growth if we have no access to clean water we will sick and spend the money on the hospital, but we still drink unclean water because we are not access to clean water if you don’t drink that water you will die and to keep alive  on choices to choose besides drinking that water but, you don’t know that unclean water also can lead you to die. According to www.siwi.com they said that “Improved water supply and sanitation and improved water resources management boost countries economic growth and contribute greatly to poverty eradication”. No access to clean water can lead you to poverty because when you are sick you can’t go to schools, work and you miss a lot of good opportunities such as learning and having time with friend or family. ( Water.org ) is an American nonprofit developmental aid organization, co-founded by Matt Damon, and WaterPartners, co-founded by Gary White. Their goal is to provide aid to regions of developing countries that do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation. The website states, “Time spent gathering water or seeking safe sanitation accounts for billions in lost economic opportunities” (in-text citation). Access to clean water and sanitation at home can help them save more time, having more time with family, education and work opportunities that will help them break the cycle of poverty. But, nowadays there are 260 billion U.S. dollars lost globally each year due to lack of basic water and sanitation and 844 million people living without access to clean water and sanitation. Economic stop growing also because of that problem “No access to clean water” . So the Government should think about this problem if all of the citizens of its country have access to clean water the whole country will be developing. The economy will be starting to grow faster than why having access to clean water can affect the whole country and I believe that is the government can solve this problem before it affects the whole country.

Another reason why everyone should access to clean water is that people need a healthy life to continue living. People can’t continue living without a healthy life. According to www.health.com said that “Live healthy, live longer. Making just a few changes in your lifestyle can help you live longer”. So, Living with healthy can make you live longer. According to www.worldometers.info said that there more than 54m of people that die this year and there are more than 1m of people that die because of no access to water sanitation and living with unhealthy life. Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev is a Russian and formerly Soviet politician. He uses to be the eighth and last leader of the Soviet Union. “Water, the basic ingredient of life, is among the world’s most prolific killers.” While there is a lack of accessing to safe drinking water, the world’s children lost at least 4000 due to this water-related diseases. This is a really serious problem that now a day there still 844M of people living without access to clean water and sanitation. All of them aren’t living with a healthy life because of they drink that unclean water. For us, that unclean water isn’t important and we hate that water sometimes we don’t even touch that water but for them, that unclean water is much important as their life they can’t live without that water and some of them don’t know that drinking unclean water can affect their health but, they always dream of having clean water in their daily life. There a lot of organizations that working on that problem. But, they still can’t solve that problem they need our help from all of us and the government too. I can’t imagine how can they drink that water and living with unhealthy life. Arsenic still in water and people still drink that water and when the arsenic already in the body it can’t be removed or treated. If I’m one of the people that living an unhealthy life I don’t know that I can live until today or not and have the opportunity that I have today or not. Last but not least Living with a healthy life also related to Living with clean water. If we drink that unclean water and not access to clean water we aren’t living with a healthy life and you will die at an early age and miss a lot of good opportunities.

So, according to this three reason the government needs to make sure that its citizens have access to clean water and receive the same amount of clean water. No access to clean water is the world biggest problem. Everyone needs full access to clean water in order to have a healthy life, happy life and it also can help the economic growth in their country.  


Physical Science

The last term we were focusing on different atoms and chemical elements. For this term 2, I have studied about Covalent Bond and Ionic Bond which are the combination of elements chemically. This two bond is made when atoms share or transfer electrons with another element to be stable and create another sustain. The electrons that can be shared or transfer are called the Valence Electrons which are located in the outer energy of an atom.

Covalent bond: when the element shares the electron together to be stable and create another sustain between non-metal to non-metal.  

Ionic bond: when the elements lost or gain more electrons and they give away their electrons between mental to non-metal.

Kolap Pailin

There are a lot of stories from the past that the author has been written and

The cover of the book.

public it all around Cambodia. In this round in Khmer literacy this term we also one of Cambodia ’s storybook and this book title is Kolad Pailin. In this story, they have four main that we need to describe and there are something from that character that we need to learn from. The four characters are Chao Chet (Main Character), Kun Neary ( Main Character), Luong Ratanak Sombat (Kun Neary’s father), and Ba lat ( Bad Character). Chao Chet is the good men he has determination, integrity, and stewardship. Kun Neary is a good woman that she is a bit rude at the first time that she saw Chao Chet but, inside she is a good person and she is really brave. Luong Ratanak Sombat is a good boss he never looks down at poor people and his worker. Ba Lat is a bad man he always looks down at poor people and he isn’t brave but he always says that he is brave.

This is really important that we learn about Cambodia’s story understand about it and take the good message to practice in real-life.

Argumentative Essay

In this round, we are focusing on writing. First, we were focusing on Social and Environmental Injustice. We did some activity that related to this topic and tried to understand more about this topic. For this topic, we had the Hyperdoc to working on and we also read some article on Newsela.

Picture from google

We also did some debating on Schools should stop the practice of giving letter grades to students. Instead, they should only give written feedback. For this activity, there are two group and the two groups are Agree group and Not Agree group. When we finish our debating we learn about the sources the primary source and the secondary source. The primary source is the first-hand source no copy from other wed/article. The secondary source is the second-hand source. There also the Bais source. The bias source is the source is the force source. We learned all of this source because we are writing the Argumentative essay and we need to know about the source and we use all of this source to support our writing.
