Excellence Blog Post #6 Technology - Must Do

This week at tech I was in Design and Sewing. I made a pillow that had a turtle on the front of it and with very thin plait fabric, it wasn't very difficult because it only took about 30 minutes and for the rest of the time we had at Lincoln i had mandarin and just was helping other people on their projects since i hadn't been there in awhile.

The learner quality that i showed at Technology was Active Thinking cause even when i didn't have a project to do I help other people with their project so i wasn't just sitting around doing nothing.

I showed leadership at Technology by helping out others instead of mucking around.

Excellence Blog Post #2 Olympic Games 2017 - Must Do

Last week the whole school area participated in the Oakland's school Olympics. The part that the year 7/8's take part in the Olympics was helping the smaller children that were a little scared or didn't want to do it get excited and to make them want to do it and to get them involved in all the activities and stuff like that.

The learner quality that I showed during the Oakland's school Olympics was Respect by knowing when to just let the smaller children go to a teacher when it looked like they really didn't/couldn't do it anymore.

I showed Leadership at the Oakland's School Olympics was helping a small child when she didn't want to do the games and I got her to want her to do it by helping her with the games.

Reading - Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to make decisions about the usefulness of the text for purpose, by using a variety of criteria to evaluate.

Here is a link to our online modelling book

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Status

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information
