Week Five - Wastewise and Finished Products

Did you know that over half of the waste that is created by Auckland could in fact be recycled? Neither did we until Wednesday. On Wednesday afternoon, our Wastewise Facilitator Ron took us through a fantastic workshop. He helped us classify and sort different types of rubbish (Ron called it stuff) that we create into either landfill, recyclables or compost. We had a quick competition with Room 9 and they managed to come out as the winners but we still got lots of good ideas. Our next step is to play the sorting game every day and make use of the different types of bins we have at school, as well as sharing this message with our friends and families.

After the whirlwind that was camp we have also managed to finish off some of the bullyfree resources that we were working on during Week 3. Below are a couple of examples of wordclouds that we created using tagul.
We were also learning about how to copy and paste codes so that we can embed our thinglink creations about ourselves in our upcoming individual learning blogs, very exciting!  One of the things we talked about in bullying free week was getting to know each other.  Knowing more about each other helps us to get along.  We have shared some things about ourselves in our thinglinks, while remembering to stay cybersmart and not sharing too much.  Here are a couple of our creations.

  1. Hi my name is Jazmine
    I think that it looks really cool to do and to draw your hand and then writing thing in it.

    1. Hi Jazmine,
      Tagul is a great word cloud creator that you might like to try. The kids in Room 8 found it quite easy to do once we had our ideas from our padlet. We did have to use the ~ line to keep our sentences together though.
      Thanks for your comment.

    1. Hi Callum,
      Thank you for your comment. It was one of our activities during bullying free week and we are going to put them up in the class as a way to remind us of the kind things we could do for each other. Maybe you could give it a try too, the link to tagul is in our blog post.
      Thanks again,

    1. Hi Oliver,
      It has been a very busy week and we were glad to get them finished and onto our blog to share. Maybe each of the students in Room 8 could post them on their own learning blogs when they start too.

    1. Hi Osana,
      We used www.thinglink.com to add ideas to our photos. It is very easy to use, maybe you could check it out too. Fingerprints are a great idea, we created hands because we use them to help others too.
      Thanks for reading our blog and taking time to comment.

    1. Hi Sami,
      We had a lot of fun creating the thinglinks, it was part of our work during bullying free week so that we can get to know more about our friends. It was important that we were cybersmart too and didn't share too much information.

    I enjoy reading what you have learnt and that you had so much FUN! I didn't know that over half of the waste that is created by Auckland could in fact be recycled but now I do which is great and fun. I think its fun because learning new things is FUN!!! I learnt to use thinglink in 2014 and I post it on my blog. If you want to check out my blog and comment, here is the link : http://hpsalaskahv.blogspot.co.nz/

    1. Hi Alaskah,
      It was really surprising for us too about how much waste we could be recycling and composting. We have been trying our best to use the new compost bins at school with our fruit. Do you have compost bins or a worm farm at your school?
      Thanks for sharing your blog link, the Room 8 kids here will be excited to see what a learning blog looks like.

    My name is Hulita,I am from Hay Park School. I like the way that you guys written nice things in the hand. When I read the words it filled my bucket and it made my day more happier. Also I like that you guys have used thinglink and it actually looks awesome. What did you guys like when you created the thinglink? Was it hard or easy? I hope you answer my questions.

    Sincerely

    1. Hi Hulita,
      We are glad that it filled your bucket for today, the idea that we had was that hands are a way to help and it seems like we have helped you and you have helped us by checking our blog too. Thinglink is quite easy to use, you just have to remember to save if you don't finish first go. I think the students in Room 8 enjoyed it more when we worked out that we could make pictures, not just words pop up.
      Thanks for reading and commenting on our blog,

      Thank you for your positive and thoughtful comment. We are enjoying sharing our learning and some of the cool things that we are doing also come from our cybersmart learning with James. Did he come and help you when you started out blogging and using chromebooks too? It is helpful that you have shared your blog link with us too because we can use this to see what we could out on our learning blogs.

  24. Wow R8, each time I visit your blog, I am blown away by the new skills you are acquiring. What a fantastic job of the thinglink creations! I also love the wordclouds - they contain great messages. I hope you have continued to play the Wastewise game, it certainly gave me a lot to think about! Thanks for sharing your fabulous learning yet again :-)

    1. Hi Jaimie,
      Thanks for having a look at our blog. We might have even been playing the same game with Ron. I think we got 28 points and Room 9 got 31. It was very close and even the teachers had a go. I felt a bit nervous trying to remember the right place for the different types of waste. How many points did Room 4 get?
