what max said

Max, you have thought hard about what you want and set goals to help you get there. I can see that these are important to you and you have thought about how to measure success. It can be tricky to measure 'get better at hockey' perhaps if you concentrated on a particular skill it would be easier to measure. I can see you working hard on your maths goals, Soon it will be time to set a new one!

Reflection Questions

I followed the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process by…getting my questions and using what i new about the commonwealth games.

My next step when I use the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process is…use it at home and school for laerning.

The fun part of the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process was…laerning about the commonwealth games.

Max, you successfully used the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process and I am pleased you can see that it is useful in other learning areas as well. 
You have used your reading strategies to help as you read to make meaning and grow your understanding and knowledge. You and your buddy worked to create a kahoot and we had fun using them in class to check our understanding about the Commonwealth Games. At times this was a tricky task but showed perseverance as you worked through your difficulties to create a kahoot with your group.
