Kia ora tātou,
Welcome back. I hope you have had a relaxing holiday time and a chance to recharge your batteries ready for what promises to be a short but action packed term 2.
To begin term two we are focusing on Teaching as Inquiry and Goal Setting.
Following on from recent discussion around the use of Google forms in education we are asking you this week to share your literacy wonderings and inquiry.
This is a chance for you to be involved in and see the way google forms can be used to gather and share information.
You can fill out the form and check responses here. Lets see how we can collaborate and share our successes and challenges! As we reflect on our wonderings and our inquiry, what goals do we set for this term?
