In the left part of the picture, the person is expecting a good result for an event. Yet, the result is the opposite. My drawing represents the process of becoming upset when we have high expectations but don’t turn out to expectation. That is “disappointment”.

We invite you to see the book covers and tangents made by the students.

The Do Re Mi Song – Lyrics by Group 1

First Verse

Do, a conceited man with a hat                      Jeff, Shawn, Derick

Re, he wants a clap every time                       Kris, Felix, Lisa, Jason

Mi, you always admire me                 Charlene, Eden, Emily, Jaden

Fa, a cat, he speaks Chinese               Gordon, Rita, Charlie, Yvonne

So, a bear who’s very smart               Ryan, Cathy, Kevin

La, a cookie made of cheese               Anita, Cindy, Hunter

Ti, our life is a journey                                   Vincent, Stanley, Dora

That will bring us back to Do, oh, oh, oh

 

Second verse

Do, a dog who calls Tom weird                     Jeff, Shawn, Derick

Re, all men are his admirers.              Kris, Felix, Lisa, Jason

Mi, the first two parts of mice             Charlene, Eden, Emily, Jaden

Fa, a far away to home                                   Gordon, Rita, Charlie, Yvonne

So, a kind man’s soul                         Ryan, Cathy, Kevin

La, way to say pull in Chinese                       Anita, Cindy, Hunter

Ti, the tired without red                                  Vincent, Stanley, Dora

That will bring us back to Do
