When we take time to really think about what we have done and how, we can identify what sort of learner we have been and what our next steps are.
Through a class discussion about our year so far, we asked 'What have we been doing really well? and "What can we be proud of as a class?"
These are some of our responses...
- "People engaged in their learning"
- "Peaceful environment"
- "Great feedback from other teachers"
- "Working well together"
- "Personal reading"
- "We won KiwiCan"
- "12 people in all Readers' Cafēs"
- "Managing our tasks"
- "Lots of kids in extras groups and teams"
- "Using our learning spaces well"
- "Lots of nice people"
- "Working hard"
- "Great teachers"
- "Challenging ourselves"
We think these are all positive things and it was wonderful hearing students giving their reasons for their statements. Of course there were some things identified for us to work on that we will focus on as a class after the break.
Often, talking to the people around us can give us valuable feedback about our own performance. Sometimes they notice things that we don't. We spent time talking to our peers about things that they have noticed about us, which helped us to individually identify our next steps and write a blog post titled - 'Reflecting on term one'.
