Tweet of the week - Week 10

The final Kidsedchatnz session for term one was a popular with over 430 tweets made from 20 different classes. Some really good tweets were being sent and a couple were quite funny.

I think all of us teachers might be in trouble though, if we let the kids make some rules for us to follow. There were some impressive tweets being sent by everyone and but these were my favourites. I hope we will see you all back here at Kidsedchatnz next term where we will continue connecting children around NZ.

Topic for Week 10 - Rules

Hi everyone,

This week will be the last Kidsedchatnz session for Term 1. It has been great seeing so many classes taking part, especially all the new faces that have joined us this term. We hope to see you all back here next term.

Before you take part in Kidsedchatnz this week, make sure you watch these two videos about the rules at school. The first is shown below, for the second please click this link to a news article about some primary schools in Auckland.

1. Do you think rules are important to have/follow? Why/why not?
2. What are some of your school rules?  Why do you think your school chose them?
3. Should you/do you follow your school rules outside of school? If so, where/when?
4. What do you think would happen if there were no rules?
5. How can we as teachers help you to learn/understand the rules?
6. What 3 rules would you change at you school? Why? 
7. If you could write some rules for your teachers to have to follow, what would they be?
8. Should there be a consequence for not following rules? What should it be?

Remember to subscribe to the Kidsedchatnz list and we'll see you on Thursday at 2pm.

Tweets of the Week

Well done on an awesome first Trans-Tasman chat everyone. 668 tweets yesterday afternoon! It was great to have some Australian classes join us. I was so impressed with what you have already learnt about ANZAC. Thank you for sharing your special stories about some of your great, great grandparents who went to war too. Here are the tweets of the week.
