Sharing is Caring

In Room 9 we have been practising being kind and caring - helping others by sharing what we know, being patient and understanding.

This term we have been able to practice and extend our caring is sharing lessons to Room 7 and Room 12.

Room 9 have been using 'Book Creator' and really enjoy the opportunity to create informative and creative books to share with everyone. Teaching other children how to craft their own amazing electronic books, has resulted in some fantastic shared experiences.

Clare- My room 12 buddy had too many ideas and couldn’t decide on what she wanted to make a book on. I had to keep asking her what she likes or what she wanted to make a book on. Her book ended up cool, she put photos on and changed the fonts and sizes. She was able to show me how to make a comic book we hadn’t learnt that yet and it was cool as it had cool stickers you could add.

Ash- I liked working with my partner, she was funny.

Ashe- It got a bit tricky when i didn’t know what to do next thankfully whaea Angel knew and we were off again. Her book was funny.

By teaching their peers they were able to exchange knowledge and make their own learning more concrete. They had to be able to manage themselves and their partner while thinking about what they were planning to make at the end of the session.
