Week 9: Socrative!

In Setoga class we enjoy reflecting on our learning because it helps us understand what we really know, what we know and what we don't know.  It also helps us think about what we could do next time to make something better.

Miss Fortes sometimes has to tell us to reflect but some people can do it by themselves.  We use a website called Socrative to reflect on our learning.

This is us hard at work

Week 8: Screencastify

This term we have been looking closely at the Hay Park Way.  This is a screencastify that JD made to share his thinking about the Hay Park Way.

We were all so happy when we could hear JD independently self-assessing his work.

"A screencastify is a good way to share your learning because people can give you really good feedback.  Now I know that have to go and do the last criteria again." - JD

Week 7: Five finger rule

This week we learned about the 'five finger rule'.  When you are reading a book you have your hand ready. Every time you come across a hard word or a word you don't know, you put up one finger.  If you have all five fingers up before the end of the page it means 'STOP' and that the text is too hard for you.

We use this rule to help us find books that we can read independently.  Do you have a rule that you use?

Week 6: iMovie

Today we made an iMovie of our final softball session.  It was good to see everyone try to hit the ball but some people had three strikes and missed the ball.  When we tried to upload our iMovie it didn't work because it said that it exceeded 100MB.

Can anyone help us make it smaller?  Or does anyone have any tips to make our movie shorter?

Thank you
Fehi and Grace

Week 5: Our class site

Have you visited our class site?  You can click here to go to our site.

This is where you can find information about our learning and access our maths hub and writing hub.  These are my favourite places because they have fun activities and sites we can use to help our learning.
