WALT: Learning to Learn
- know what I am learning to do
- I know what I need to to to get better
- I plan activities that are going to help my learning
- I follow my plan
- use my learning time wisely (complete my activities on time)
We are on the path to becoming self directed learners in Adventure 9. This means we are beginning to make choices that help us grow as learners. We know what we are learning and what we need to do to get better.
We plan our week choosing activities that are going to help us reach our goals. We plan all the must do’s and then add the can do’s.
My Buddy thinks
I know what I am learning
I know what I am learning in…
maths, reading, handwriting and writing
of coures you no what you are doing
I know what I need to do to get better
I need to get better at my maintenance in maths.
I think that is a great idea
I plan activities that are
going to help my learning
I don’t just play blog games or the fun stuff first I do the must dos first.
i have seen you and you hardly do any can dos
I follow my plan
I follow my plan everyday when I come to school.

I use my learning time wisely
I use my time wisely I don’t just plan word smart then do something else I do whats on my plan.
you always do it and you get everything done in time
Abby, you are a diligent, hardworking young lady. You know what your learning goals are and what you need to do to grow as a learner. You are always on task and you strive for excellence. I love the creativity you show and the risks you are starting to take in your learning. Keep taking those risks and be prepared to make some mistakes because that is part of how we learn!

- WALT: ask questions as we read to make sure we understand what we read.
- I learned to: Ask fat and skinny questions
- Most challenging was ask: Because some times I get mixed up with fat and skinny questions.
- Next step is to my next step is to use my skinny questions.
Abby, you have been practising asking questions before and after you read to help you to understand your reading. You are practising asking different types of questions like thick and thin questions. I have noticed that asking questions and making predictions about the text have you to helped improve your comprehension (understanding) of what you read.
