Final Comment

Ebony's Comment:
The Digi-nauts have had a fantastic term full of many great experiences to start the year off well. Swimming Sports and Buddy Challenge Day were some highlights. Our focus this term has been around building positive relationships with others. This included how the children interacted in the classroom, and creating some rules as a class that would ensure we have a positive learning space.  Starting individual blogs has also been a big part of learning about themselves as learners. Following instructions and self management has been really important to create a successful blog or e-portfolio.  You might ask your child how well they think they did with this. All the children can be proud of the persistence shown with this and support they have given one another to post, upload photos and embed codes. We look forward to sharing our learning with you.

Cooper you are great at following instructions and managing your learning independently. You can be proud of how you help others to achieve their goals by offering help as well. It is good to see how you do your best in every task. Keep it up Cooper!

Ebony says: This is a good first draft with lots of information about who was in the story, where, when and what happened. I wonder what it was like to see he Jets? Were they so loud they made the ground rumble? It would be good to use the highlighter strategy to show the parts you did well and the parts you would like to improve.
