Respectful Communication

Holy Moly... Guacamole!

Beginning with a bit of role play... We got into four groups, each stationed by a chair. Nicky told us an object, and we had t work as a team to make that object. We had a chair in case we needed to get higher (instead of using a body to stand on.
Make a tree
A Spring flower opening 
An erupting volcano
A bus stop
Kiwican says "Its not just what you say, it's how you say it."

What were some nice things that you heard last week?

What are some of the ways that we communicate?
- We talk to each other.
- Blog posts and comments.
- Email and text message.

What are the rules about what we put online?
- Not putting full names on there.
- If you're putting a comment, it needs to be thoughtful, helpful and positive.

We need to remember that if it's written online, then it's there for a lot longer than if it were spoken. Theres no body language or tone of voice to give people extra clues about the message it's sending.

We got back into our groups to do our next activity.

In Slow motion:
"One person in your group gets an award that you wanted. How do you react?"

Can't stop dancing:
Your group of friends are playing together and you see a student playing alone. What do you do?

We had to Mime:
A group of students are being rude to the teacher... What do you do?
As animals:
You see this student being picked on by two other students. What do you do?


  1. Hi its Abby from Kaniere School, I really like your moves. My favorite is the a spring flower opening. It reminds me of a real one.

  2. Kia ora Whakarua,
    I obviously haven't been on your blog for awhile - there is so much exciting learning that I have missed! I am really enjoying reading through your posts. It looks like you had heaps of fun role playing with Kiwi Can. I like that you are learning some really good messages through a fun experience. Thanks for sharing.
