Librarian Distinction #2

On Monday, all the librarians gathered up in the library to talk about a new website. It is a library website that we were going to use to teach other students how to use it. Mrs Ward talked us through it and taught us how to use it. She showed us around the website and some cool things we can do on it. Some things I learnt were how to reserve a book on the website and how to search for any book you want. You can also check what books you've got out on a list on the website. We got to play around with it to get us use to it since we're going to teach other classes how to use the website.
After the meeting, we still had time to do a little bit of the librarian job before the bell rang. I helped put some books back and sort out the shelves.

I showed Active Thinking by helping keep the library tidy and using my inishitive to pick up any dirty bits on the floor in the library. I picked up books, cushions, rubbish and fixed some shelves.

I showed leadership by showing I can do this and not mucking round the library when mrs ward was showing us the website. I was listening well so I know what to do when I have to teach the other classes about this website.

I have been a role model by sitting quietly and on the mat and not interrupting what mrs ward was saying. I showed others how to be respectful and listening to the instructions.

I describe a what an adverbial clause is

For reading I have been learning about adverbial clauses. I have found this learning pretty easy because I knew what it meant pretty fast and the activity was quite easy.

In this activity, I had to highlight the adverbial clauses in the sentences to show that I can understand it.

Librarian Distinction #1

On Monday at lunchtime, I had my librarian duty on. When I first walked in the library, I saw a lot of books needed to be put away. So that's what I did, in fact every time, we start the duty by placing books back onto the shelves. After all that was done, it was time for issuing and returning. Quite a few people wanted books out. I helped them issue it. I also went to the back if there was any problems but nope, no problems. The library was pretty quiet. Okay, now it's time to pack up. At 1:20 we pack up the library and let the people go. My duty was pretty easy.

I showed community by helping others issue their books and cleaning some parts of the library. I placed a lot of cushions back to where they belong and helping others pack at the end of library time.

I showed leadership by making sure everyone was doing the right thing and not being too loud in the library. I didn't really have to talk to many people about noise level because it was pretty quiet in the library as usuall.

I have been a role model to others by respecting the library how it was supposed to be respected. I also showed pride in my duty an how a responsible librarian should be like.

Must Do Distinction #1

On Tuesday, we had technology in the mornings and I did food technology. When we first got there, in the food technology space, we had to sit down in our groups of four and wait for the next instruction. My group of four was me Lachlan, Alex and James. Mrs Weston, our food tech teacher, let us choose our own recipe to cook. We chose kiwi fruit cinnamon scones. After that, we had to get out the utensils needed and the ingredients. It was really fun cooking because I got to roll out the dough and rub in the mixture. At the end just before we baked it, it looked revolting; but after it got out of the oven, it looked way better.

I showed Active Thinking by listening to the teacher when she was giving out instructions. I was doing very good and helping others listen so we can get on with the cooking, or we wouldn't know what to do. I was quite happy at the end because I follow the instructions carefully.

I showed leadership by not mucking around and doing what I was supposed to be doing. I follow the instructions very carefully and to get the most of it.

I have been a role model by helping others when they needed help. I tried my best to help others with measuring and other stuff. I wasting attention and not messing around with ingredients and utensils.

PALS Distinction #1

On Wednesday at lunch, I had my PALS duty on. Before 1:10, we got the gear set up ready to go. Alex and I had junior PALS, which that meant we had to play games with juniors or Kakano. We played Small Field Football and surprisingly ALOT of people came to play. During the game, more people came to give it a go. We had a fair play and the students enjoyed it. They were all happy and got on with the game when there was an issue. At the end, I gave out a lot of pozis to the students.

I showed excellence by running the game with pride and turning up to my duty on time. I didn't miss my duty even though I couldn't be bothered. 

I showed leadership by playing fairly and making sure everyone was honest. There were no injuries as we took care of everyone and helped them play safely. They all know and agreed on the rules so I think I did a good job at explaining 

I have been a role model by doing my duty properly and not mucking around. I was focused on the game and not letting any distractions come to my head. I was demonstrating the important traits of a leader.

WALT apply the techniques of improvisation to a range of different scenarios.

Improvisation TECHNIQUES that I have used successfully are, to always say yes because if you don't, it ruins the scene of whats happening.

Improvisation TECHNIQUES that I would like to have more practice at is body language because I don't really face the audience much.

The thing that I enjoyed most about this unit of learning was the improvisation games because it was fun and it helps you build more confidence in Drama.

The thing that I found most challenging during this unit of learning was coming up with ideas in the improvisation because if someone steals your idea its hard to think of another one.

My favorite improvisation game was the Doorbell one because its funny to see different accents and its a great acting one too.

My next step/ something I need to work on further  in improvisation is to make more eye contact with the audience so then they feel connected to the scene.

Librarian Excellence #10

On Monday, at lunch, I went to the library to do my duty. As always, I needed to put the books back on the shelf to start with. After putting them away, I issued some peoples books. A few people asked me where to find the books they were looking for. For example, Rainbow Magics, Beast Boys and Bear Grylls.There were also a lot of returning going on, as the children enter in the library. I liked issuing and returning so that shouldn't be a problem. 

I demonstrated respect by answering people's questions respectfully and showing them where to get the book.

I was an active thinker by doing the right thing and sticking to the job.
