Kiwican kicks off again

We talked about how we used integrity over the holidays. It might be being quiet at the movies or tidying your room. We recapped about resilience and what that means.

This term we are learning about Goal Setting. We thought about setting goals for ourselves. It might be gaining levels in swimming; learning to bake; improving my football skills.

Kiwican says if you can dream it, you can do it.

We kept the balloon alive, using each other's names to take terms hitting the balloon up.

We played "step back".
We had to show resilience band persevering when it got tough.

We made the Western News!

Tia's Treehouse takes shape

For the last three weeks (in groups) we have been planning our ultimate tree house. 
The first two days we looked at other tree houses on the internet and decided what it could look 
like and what it might have. 
Some groups did it in a doc others put it in a Padlet. My group did it in a Padlet here it is.
