Wilma created this story using the iPad app 'Puppet Pals HD':
Student-led conferences are a chance for students to take the lead and show their families some of their best work, favourite activities, and how much progress they've made over the year.
In other words . . . a celebration of learning!
Here is Wilma's reflection on her Student-led Conference:
"I liked it. I loved it when I show mummy what I did. My favourite was singing '5 Little Ducks'."
Wilma has been interested in making patterns during her free play. One day she made long chains of patterns with her friends. They hung them on a tree we have in our classroom. This action shows that Wilma understands how to create and extend patterns independently, as well as a developing concept that patterns are a part of aesthetic design.
Recently we have been doing a lot of playing with shapes. We have been studying their form and observing how they appear in different ways in the world around us. Wilma has been learning the names of shapes and can now name rectangles and circles independently and triangles and squares with support. She is also experimenting with other more complicated shapes. Wilma selected her shape stamp work to be included in her portfolio because: "I stamped so many shapes."
Wilma participates enthusiastically in all of our class activities. She shows her excitement with her words and body language. This week when we celebrated World Health Day she decided to join in with the older students who were doing morning exercises in the playground. Later that morning she shared what she had done and learned with her K1AC classmates our Morning Meeting. Thanks for all of your excitement and enthusiasm Wilma!
