Reflect on a time that you have been in the pit.
When I was learning about decimals I was in the pit. I felt quite stressed but I put myself in the pit by going to lots of individual workshops, and doing lots of work at home.

How did you feel when you where in the pit.
I felt annoyed and cross because some of my friends had moved up and at home dad was making me do extra work at home, but it all paid off!

Feed back and feed forward: From Ana

 Well done Hannah! I like the colours on your picture because they pull the reader in and they go together also, I like you clear hand writing, it makes the poster easy to read. Maybe next time you could put your 3 things you say to yourself in the pit on the poster. Ana

Te Reo/Presentation Sample

  1. WALT: communicate a message.

    Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts.  We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.

    Task: Make a poster about Te Reo Maori.

    Here is my poster.

    Complete the criteria with targets to show your reflection. Reflect on the evaluation questions below.
    Message: My message is clear and purposeful.  Everything that is on my poster relates to my message.  I think I did this really well because when I looked back at it I looked at the criteria and all of it related!
    Composition:  My poster is balanced. I think my poster is balanced and I think this because when I asked the teacher and two other friends they said that it was balanced.

    Font:  My font is clear, readable and suits the message I think it is quite good my friends said that it was really good but the teacher said it could have been better
    Colors:  I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary.  My background choice makes the text pop! I used more than I had to, but I think it looks really good and I also like the background because it is a nice dark color. Because I didn't use three colors I am going to say that I did " Pretty well"!  
    Accuracy:  All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly. I did this really well but at first when I took it to the teacher there where lots but in the end I got it sorted!

    What are you most proud of and why? I am proud of giving my poster me all and I also don't no many maori phrases so I am proud of learning the phrases to put in my poster.

      What challenged you the most and why? Making my font the right font to match my poster.   This was hard because on pic collage there are not many fonts so I just had to try the best font. It was an OK font!

    Next time, what is a goal you can work towards? Basically just too work towards fixing up my orange goals I think that I can do this by practicing  just this when making other posters!  Remember that perfect practice makes perfect!

                    1. This is some really good stuff Hannah you could have made the blue liter and the text darker to make then pop. But it still looks ok anyway the layout could be better but it is ok for the amount of text it is rather balanced as well. I love the shadowing affect. :)
