We are learning about Rangatiratanga (Leadership and initiative).
This is what we think Rangatiratanga is...
- Helping new kids –showing them what to do and where things are
- Doing something without being asked
- Solving problems for ourselves… thinking
- Leading by example… showing by doing
- It is not being a bossy boots
Rangatiratanga (Leadership and Initiative) - it is all about thinking and making some choices for ourselves.
We need to think for ourselves!!
I show rangatiratanga - (leadership and initiative) in the classroom.
I show rangatiratanga - (leadership and initiative) in the playground.
I show rangatiratanga in the playground by: including people because I am being, I am leading by doing the right thing.
I show rangatiratanga in the classroom when: I do things for people like doing the calendar and putting thins away for people without being asked.
It was really hard when: people do things I'm going to do to show initiative like when I am going to put all the pencils away and somebody else does it.
Kerri ThinksJamie, you are a great learner and show leadership by making sure you are doing the right thing and you always try your very best. Remember initiative is all about making some choices for yourself, have a think and then have a go. Your next step is to take a few risks... it doesn't matter if you make a mistake, mistakes can be some of the best learning!
