We have been learning about the Aubin Grove Learner qualities in our class. There are 3 main learner qualities.
I am a DRIVER
I am a THINKER
I am a COMMUNICATOR
These have been developed by staff to complement our visible learning professional development. Last week Mrs Lalor came in to teach us about being communicators.
Students completed three activities. First they discussed what a communicator is and what good communicators do.
First students worked in their teams to make the capital letter A, then a lower case a. They had to communicate clearly, speak in an appropriate voice and give feedback to work together, without being too bossy!!
We then explored body language by pulling different faces and having our partners guess the emotion we were showing. Finally, students played ‘Finger Tip Trip’, in pairs, giving directions around the classroom with their partner having their eyes closed. We were working on giving clear and careful feedback to keep our partners safe.
Students then helped compile a list by each saying one thing that is the most important for a good communicator to do. Ever since then, the students have been using lots of the ‘buzz’ words of communication, like feedback and collaboration!
