Peer Mediation Leadership Merit 3

Today I did Peer Mediation with Elizabeth, We went everywhere around the school, We went around the playgrounds, The field, and the courts. We didn't have to solve ANY problems. Well any that were really that serious anyway. I showed leadership by, showing up and just doing it, even though I REALLY didn't want to.

Term 1 Integrated Learning - Leadership

We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.

We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are Goal focused, Motivational, Active Thinker, Integrity, Trustworthy, and Resilience.

The leadership trait that I think I show the most is motivational because I always motivate my friends.

The leadership trait I would most like to develop is being Resilient because I always just give up

Something NEW I have learned about leadership is that you have to be all these traits to be an effective leader.

The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is relational because I can be most of these traits but not ALL of them.
(see slide 2 of the leadership modelling book for this)

My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.

Getting involved Leadership Merit 2

Today I was getting involved by going along to the basketball with the rams AND the wildcats this week, as I have been the past few weeks. I showed leadership by going with other people not just going with Charlotte and I was doing my best. Today we played a game called in and out, Jamie says in then you go in and when he says out you have to go out, I came 2nd both games. We also played a shooting game, called dog box.

Technology Leadership Merit 4

Today the year 7&8's went to Lincoln Primary School to do our tech. Today in COOKING we made pinwheel scones, cheese scones and potato pizzas! To make the pinwheel scones you made just normal scones and then add brown sugar and cinnamon. To make the potato pizzas you just cut out the middle of the potato and then fill it! I showed leadership by cleaning up after myself and helping out my group when they didn't know what the 3/4 cup was because I like baking and I do it a lot so I know.

Helping out Leadership Merit

Today I helped out Mrs Ward by delivering the i pads to the other classes. I took up ALL my lunch time and a bit of my learning time, but I did it all! I think I showed respect by going around the classes quietly and not just talking very loudly to Anneke. I think I showed excellence by doing it and not disturbing Mrs Ward.

Being a role model Leadership Merit 1

I was a great role model when I was delivering the i pads for Mrs Ward because one class I went to was room 23, but their teacher wasn't there yet, I didn't just muck around and maybe think that I could just go to the playground to wait. I was a good role model and waited there patiently with the others in room 23.

Technology Leadership Merit 3

Today was my first time doing cooking! I was showing leadership because I helped clean the dishes once we had finished our hangi's, I showed resilience by waiting in line to put the food in the tin foil and trying new things because I had never tried a hangi before. We also learned about Kiwiana foods.

Getting involved Leadership Merit 1

Today I was getting involved by going to the basket ball with the rams and even though I don't play basket ball I tried it out. I also got involved by doing flips on the bars at tech. Today at the basket ball we did a couple games. We had to choose a partner and I chose someone I don't really well, I was collaborating with different people.

Kapa Haka Leadership Merit 1

On Friday I did kapa haka, We changed the moves a bit, I enjoyed it because I love singing AND dancing, I would have done choir but in kapa haka you get to dance as well as singing and lean about another culture. The moves are a bit confusing because everybody just does the old moves and forgets about the changes.

Maths proof

WALT: Know equivalent decimal and percentage.
Know  know how to turn decimals into fractions.

This was the first game.
This was the second game.

Peer mediation Merit 2

Today I did peer mediation with Elizabeth and Jack we walked around for about 20 minutes and then our duty was over but today we didn't really get to help anyone I mean we did but it was really quick to solve. But it wasn't really an issue it was just one person got the ball in and the other one got knocked out by that ball, so the person was sad. And then once we had finished peer mediation I had ICT, so this lunchtime wasn't the best PLAYTIME for me but these ARE my jobs!

ICT Leadership Merit 2

Today I got to do ICT, in the morning I had to untangle chargers, read what class they were on the label, then deliver them to the class on the label. I showed leadership because I didn't want to do this job but I asked to do this job so I have to do it, like it or not! At lunch the ICT monitors did a HUGE job! We had to take the cases of about 200 i pads and then scan what class they were AND THEN deliver them to the class. I was a bit annoyed though because I was going to play a really cool game with my friends but I have to do this! (and it helps that Anneke is a ICT monitor because shes my friend and then I have someone to talk to)
