Brooklyn students embroider their ideas: Part 11

Speak up and out, by Celina

“My story is that cross-stitching this message really gave me the courage to speak up. When I started this, I was running for Student Council Treasurer and was practicing my speech. Although I didn’t win, I practiced my public speaking. Also, on the last day I worked on the Aida cloth, I gave props at circle to Jessica O. for giving me the same colored string (variegated red) from her baggie for my cross-stitching. I felt more confident after giving props.”

You should be so proud of yourself Celina for your achievements! I bet your speech was awesome, and it is so great you showed “thanks” to Jessica O. for her generosity. Way to go! 🙂

Practice PEMDAS, by Byron

I had to look up “pemdas” do find out what it meant. I’ve been out of math too long apparently! It means: “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.” (per wiki:) It is an official anagram standing for the parentheses, exponent, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction order of the mathematical order of operations.

Good luck Byron on your PEMDAS! And nice work on your cross stitch!

Kayla, sleep. by Kayla

“At the time I was doing this project, I was not getting enough sleep so I chose this message. I made a number line but it didn’t help me. People can learn from viewing my piece that I’m persistent.”

This piece turned out really well Kayla, nice job! I hope you’ve caught up on your Z’s!
