Librarian leadership Excellence #8

This Friday I had librarian. First of all Sasha and I put away the books. I sat at the desk for the first part, then Sasha sat there for the second part. I had noticed a book when I was putting books away. Since it looked interesting I decided to get it out. Near the end of lunch we closed the library.

The care value I showed was Active Thinking by using some of my librarian time to get myself a book.

The leadership value I showed was Integity, by putting books back in the right places.

This Friday Emma and I were teaching juniors. The first thing we did was set up, and for a change we sat on the floor in a circle on cushions. I think the table works better for juniors. Once the first group arrived (there were three in our first group) we introduced ourselves, and found out their names. We took them out to the junior playground so they could show us their favourite parts and what they would change. Then we went inside and they could choose whether to draw their designs or make them. We did this with three different groups.

The care value I showed was Excellence by trying to make it fun.

The leadership value I showed was Active Thinking, by changing the lesson so that kids who had already done one thing could do something else and continue what they had already started.

Koru Games

The activity I did was Volleyball.

Two highlights of the Koru games are getting the ball back over the net because when we started we wern't able to get the ball back over and beating Halswell the second time we versed them because the first time they beat us.

I am proud of coming 7th overall.

Next year I want to get better at doing rallies in volleyball because even though we have improved since we started, we can still get a lot better at rallies.

Librarian leadership Excellence #7

This week the talent show was on, so I was by myself because Sasha wanted to go and watch it. There were a lot of books to put away so Mrs Ward helped me with some of them. It took about half the time to put away the books-I also returned any I found in the wrong places. After that I just did a couple of issues, although not many people came because the talent show was on. At the end I got to go and see the last act.

The care value I showed was Active thinking by putting books that people had put in the wrong place back in the right place.

The leadership value I showed was Trustworthy by doing it by myself.

Must do leadership Excellence #7

This week it was Emma and I's turn to plan. The new topic is redesigning the school, so we had to do something around that. First we need to introduce ourselves, find out their names, and introduce the topic. Then we are going to go out to the playground (if the weather is good) and talk about what they would like to change and what they would keep. Next we are going to let them make models of either a piece of furniture, or playground equipment. For the conclusion we will ask what they learnt.

The care value I showed was community by working with Emma to make this plan.

The leadership value I showed was Active Thinker by thinking about what would engage the juniors best.

Pals leadership Excellence #7

This week on Wednesday we went home at 1:00pm. Because of this lunch was from 12:10-12:30, a 20 minute lunch. Since Pals is on for half of lunch, we did pals for 10 minutes. We did a range of games, the main one was octopus, and heads down thumbs up. We didn't really have enough time, but I think they still enjoyed it. 

The care value I showed was Respect, by trying to make sure they enjoyed it, despite the lack of time.

The leadership value I showed was Resillence, by doing Pals even when there wasn't really enough time.

Librarian leadership Excellence #6

I did librarian on Friday at lunchtime with Sasha. Firstly, we put books away. For a bit at the start we were the only ones in there, because Mrs Ward hadn't got back yet, so no one exept the librarians on duty were allowed in. About a quarter of the way through the book shelving, Mrs Ward got back, so everyone else came in. Once we had finished the shelves there were a few returns and issues to do, plus helping one person find a book. By this time it was one twenty, time to close the library.

The care value I showed was Respect by trying to help someone find a book.

The leadership value I showed was trustworthy, by making sure no one came in until they were allowed to.

For the second half of this term we will be teaching the year ones about redesigning the school. We will also be teaching a different group of kids. So, this week we got to indroduse ourselves by doing a variety of activities with them. We each got two little buddy's. First we read books to them. Secondly we went out onto the playground to talk about what their favourite playground equipment is, and play on the playground. 

The care value I showed was Community by talking and interacting with my buddy's.

The leadership value I showed was Trustworthy by keeping them safe on he equipment.
