Awesome Learners

Middle School Jager

Over the last couple of weeks we have been learning to Get Along with others by completing team challenges. We worked hard to save Ed from the ocean, as well as completing tangrams, using chopsticks and making towers out of straws. As a class we came up with 7 things we need to do to ensure we get along with each other and to ensure our focus on learning:

  1. Talk nicely to each other
  2. Treat each other with respect
  3. Encourage each other
  4. Listen to everyone’s ideas
  5. Everyone has to participate
  6. Work together
  7. Follow the 4 beliefs

Throughout the year, we as a class will need to use these skills when working in groups, for year level sports, at camp and for our class to run smoothly.
