Buddy Time!

Description: This term we started buddy time, we played four corner's to see what we have in commen, then we chose our buddy's Emily chose me because we wanted to get to know each other better. Then we made a poster to show what we each like and what we both like here is my poster.

Description: In class we are learning about listening, we made a 30 second long movie about different type's of listening, the criteria was that we had to show active listening, and busy listening or me to listening.


Big Idea:
We learnt about what sort of listening we should be doing and ones we shouldn't, there is Me To Listening which is when you interrupt the other person and tell them about the time you did something similar, there is Busy Listening which is when somebody insn't paying attention and is to "busy" to listen to your story, and there is Active Listening which is when your full attention is on the person's story, which is what everybody should be doing.

Tabitha you did a great job but you could speak a little bit louder and do some of it inside so it is easier to hear.
-Bella m

Evaluation: I think that I could try to fit in all three type's of listening and make sure all the sound was evenly balanced.

Treaty Of Waitangi Portfolio Sample

Description: In class we have been learning about the Treaty Of Waitangi, we watched a video about the treaty of Waitangi then developed questions and discussed them with class mates, next we chose one of our questions and made a circle map to develop anwser's, then we chose how to present our new found knowledge I chose a poster, afterwards we decided what our end product wanted to look like and where on the rubric we wanted to end up, I think we are on Multi because Bella and I were able to include more than three bits of information about the Treaty Of Waitanigi.


Big Idea: 
I am most proud of the end result I am really happy Bella and I completed this inside the time frame.
Next time I would add more deatail and facts
The most challenging thing was Getting it done in the time frame was hard because we only had four school hours to finish.

Feedback\Feedfoward: That is really good I liked how you added the person and how the treaty of Waitangi is really clear and I liked how that you added a lot of detail and I think that you need it bigger so people see it clearer.
- Renae

I think I am on multi because I included more than three pieces of information about the treaty of Waitangi but I didn't connect all of them together but we connected one or two them together next time I would aim for Relational, and I would make a movie and challenge myself.
