C.A.R.E Values

My goal is to develop the consistent use of our CARE Values towards all the people I interact with and for myself .


  • My strengths are in being a respectful person and  an active thinker because I  focus on my learning and I let others learn by being sensible and quiet.
  • I have achieved my bronze certificate.
  • I am far away from getting my silver certificate.


  • I am going to work towards respect  because I am very good at it.
  • I am going to do this by being quiet and sensible so others can focus and will be silent on the mat.
  • I am going to work on community, by being a caring friend.

Cloze Relfection

I am learning how to do a cloze activity to help me with my reading
Being able to make logical predictions about what word would fit correctly into a sentence is a successful read`er strategy.

So What?
We use the following procedures:
  1. Read the whole text so that we can get an overall picture of the text.
  2. Re-read the text and think of words that would fit into the gaps. Write them down
  3. Look at the word list for this activity and see if I am correct / make changes

Now What?

A = I am independent. I read the text, select words that I feel logically and grammatically fit, and then I use the word list to confirm my predictions and / or make some small changes.

Keeping Ourselves Safe

I am learning to make safe decisions.

So what?
I am learning this because we need to keep our\selves safe.

Now what?
An example of a safe decision is if I am walking down the street at night alone and I get chased I will go to the closest house and knock on the door and yell out really loudly.
