               RANGINUI


Inquiry-Portfolio Criteria
 
                                          WALT:  gather information



Description:
Every Wednesday we have been working through the Get it, Sort it, Use it model to inquire about different countries around the world and their languages/culture. We each brainstormed a potential list of subjects and chose what we wanted to find out more about and then started our research.


I think:

Evaluation:
1. What are you most proud of? I am proud that I learnt things that will help me with my future learning if I come back to troys class and in natural learning.
2. What did you find challenging? I found that actually getting the information and sorting it into facts and groups was harder than it looked.

3.  My next ‘Get It’ goal is? My next goal is to learn more by looking more into one thing then moving on to the next one and making them all more detailed and complex.

I thought "this better be a good holiday".

Commonwealth

                                                                         

Task: use the ‘get it, sort it, use it’ model of inquiry to find out about the commonwealth games and share what we have learned.

WALT: use our prior knowledge to help us understand what we read.  (Get it)
WALT: Summarise what we read to help us understand what we read.   (Get it and Sort it)
WALT: use what we have learned from our reading. (Use it)

Success Criteria
ü 10 questions
ü Only one correct answer per question
ü Clear questions (not ambiguous)
ü Image matches the question

Reflection Questions

I followed the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process by: getting the information sorting it into groups and using it.

My next step when I use the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process is: to get more and use more.

The fun part of the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process was: using it.
You have thought about your learning and used your reading strategies to help as you read to make meaning and grow your understanding and knowledge. You and your group worked to create a kahoot and we had fun using them in class to check our understanding about the Commonwealth Games.

Remember when reflecting and thinking about your learning to add more details and go a little deeper, adding a 'because' to your ideas might help. Reflecting about your learning helps you to grow as a learner, to think about what was tricky and to set goals.

Fantastic Jayden! You and Thomas created an amazing movie showing your understanding of Te Reo. Your voices are clear, your pronunciation is excellent and your animation matches your words. It is tricky to learn words in another language and you and Thomas have risen to the challenge! I love that you planned and practised what you were going to say so it was clear in your minds. Using English after the Maori was a great idea because people can learn from your clip!
