Student Led Conference Reflection

The things I enjoyed most about my SLC were:
was showing them my art because I was really proud of that

What went well and why?
was the integrated learning because they were really entered in the process of how we first started to the end

What were the challenges you faced when preparing and presenting your SLC?
The one challenge I had was I mixed up the links so i had to think quick and showed them how I found the slides (through online zone) and they asked more questions about that :)

What changes would you make for next time and why?
I would make sure I shared my writing first because that takes longest so I could get it over and done with

Visual Art

Visual Art: WALT: Apply knowledge about shapes and patterns derived from nature into an original artwork

For Visual Art the SOLO level I achieved was: Extend abstract because I created a original piece of art that showed all the techniques
I techniques I used in my art work to achieve this level were: Moving with water colors,Glazing with water colors and shading

Here is a photo of my art work:

My next step in visual art is: Is to do the glazing technique better because it din't really show through in my leaf and all to do my shading in my background better.

Leadership meeting - must do

Today we had our leadership meeting on Monday at morning tea time. We got into a circle and discussed how we've been going this year. Asking questions like how it’s going? Favourite bit? Most challenging? We discussed this a partner expect the last one which we went around the circle just so Mr Ladbrook could see what we could to improve on.
Thew leadership trait I used was ative thinking becuase I had to think of good ideas for the questions.
Overalll It was really good and I got to know the people around me a bit more.

Leadership meeting-Merit

Today we talked about being organised and how to juggle responsibly some of the thing I learnt was to write it down, everything you own you know where they are and preparation is the key you need to be prepared for everything. I think these tips were really helpful and will definitely use them in the future as a leader. Mr Ladbrook also told us some of his own tips which were really good (mainly apps)
The care value I used was active thinking because I had to think how I could put these goals in action.

Overall this really helped me and I will definitelyuse these tips in the future at the moment my goal is to write things down because I usually forget about important details.

Example/Non Example
Is a void messy? Why or why not?
A void is not messy because it is an empty space  completely blank meaning that it is is impossible to mess up only if you deliberately made it messy making it not a void
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
Neon because it sticks out in the dark of the night and helps at night on signs so people can see
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?
Because of old age they are less stable and balance is shaky and on the other hand kids are full of energy and life because they have much to look forwards and can move more freely
Which is more interconnected; a vine or a dandelion? Why?
A vine because it is connected to the ground pull a dandelion easily pull out
Which is more seldom; the Olympics or an election in NZ? Why?
The olympic because it happens every four year well a election is every three years

Word Associations
The plants in the garden are die during a frost
There were lots of different paths that joined each other

I made a shot from halfway while facing backwards.

We are still exploring  outer space.
I can find my key ring easily in the dark.

Word Relationships

How might each pair of words be connected?
They are similar because  the use of Fluorescent is sometimes to prevent injures so people will see the the stop signs (in brightly colored sign) and stop.
They are similar because in a blank space there is always a connection to the void connecting to something else.

Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
One time at night I looked through a telescope and there was no stars and all I could see was the dark of the night (void) and it just black not the thee moon or a star to be seen.
