We are learning about Rangatiratanga (Leadership and initative).
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 initative) in the classroom.
I show rangatiratanga - (leadership and initative) in the playground.
I show rangatiratanga in the playground by: helping someone if they are hurt and taking them to the duty teacher if they need to.
I show rangatiratanga in the classroom when: I follow my i-time card in reading and do all my must dos.
It was really hard when: to follow i-time in maths because the maintain it questions are too hard.
You show rangatiratanga in and out of the classroom. You are someone who leads by example. You can be counted on to quietly do the right thing, even if the questions are hard, and you are in the right spot trying your very best. You show initative when you make choices about what needs to be done and getting on and doing it - you are a quiet thinker and leader.
