WALA: The Learning Pit

Description: We have been learning about when good learning happens.

Task: Share what you know about the learning pit.

Draw the Learning Pit.
List at least 3 feelings that you might have when you are in the pit.√
List at least 3 strategies that you could use to get out of the pit.√
Label where good learning happens.√
List 3 things you could say to yourself when you are in the pit.√

Reflect on a time when you have been in the pit.
I was trying to write but I had writers block.

How did you feel when you were in the pit?
I felt stressed because I did not have much time to do any writing and I hadn't done any writing

What did you do to work out of the pit?
I asked someone what they did when they had wwriters block and I took their advice.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think you have done a great job at giving examples of how to get out of the pit also you were awsome at adding feelings about when your in the pit. But maybe next time you could explain more about when you were in it and how did you get out.

Te Reo Māori!

WALT: communicate a message.

Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts.  We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.

Why? We have noticed that our posters are too cluttered and do not communicate a  message well.
When? Week 3
Who? The World

Task: Make a poster about Te Reo Maori.

Complete the criteria with targets to show your reflection.   Reflect on the

Message: My message is clear and purposeful.  Everything that is on my poster relates to my message.

Composition:  My poster is balanced.

Font:  My font is clear, readable and suits the message.

Colour:  I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary.  My background choice makes the text pop!

Accuracy:  All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly.

What are you most proud of and why?
I am proud of the way the shadow pulls the reader in.

What challenged you the most and why?
Trying to get the whole poster balanced because sometimes there were more words on one side than there were on the other
Next time, what is a goal you can work towards
 Not having as many colours on it.
