Sharing my ideas and listening to others
Finding and exploring connections
e.g. connecting my experiences to texts, text to self, text to world
Drawing from a range of strategies
e.g. inferencing, interpreting, summarising etc.
Sourcing and analysing new information to gain clarity
e.g. asking critical questions, exploring contexts, comparing texts
Discerning and applying appropriate strategies flexibly
Seeking opportunities to engage with a wide variety of texts
e.g. singing, storytelling, role play, Godly play, drawing etc.
Experimenting with different ways of engaging with texts
e.g. writing a message, creating a song, talking about story characters, making predictions about a story etc.
Clearly knowing my purpose
Analysing the effect of literacy practices
e.g. how does the hidden marketing in social media influence me?
Adeptly switching between literacy practices to suit purpose
Exchanging ideas, feelings and understandings
Considering the interests and needs of others when creating texts
e.g. sharing the talking and listening, using appropriate language
Choosing the most appropriate communication strategies for my purpose
Evaluating my communication skills across contexts
e.g. listening, non-verbal communication, open-mindedness, showing empathy, giving and receiving feedback, picking the right medium
Defining enablers and barriers and planning my communication approach
e.g. is there a language barrier in place and how will I address this?
Engaging in play
e.g. doing puzzles, noticing patterns, water play
Recognising how my skills can help me function in the world
e.g. using estimation skills to wrap a present, using my understanding of time to help plan a journey
Linking related ideas to make meaning
e.g. seeing connections between the use of spaces in sports to better understand the sport
Interpreting information to make inferences and draw conclusions
Transferring and adapting concepts
e.g. how far off are we going to be if we make an error in orienteering
Recalling details I know
e.g. numbers, days of the week, shapes etc.
Using a range of methods to solve problems
Showing flexibility and efficiency in my approaches to find solutions
Justifying my choice of appropriate methods
Manipulating known methods to efficiently find solutions
e.g. using measurement, time and frequency to solve a musical composition problem
Noticing and wondering about mathematical problems
e.g. I wonder how many things can fit in the container?
Experimenting and making mathematical predictions to help me solve problems
e.g. what size log do I need to create a bridge?
Drawing on known mathematical strategies and justifying my choices
Forming and testing conjectures
e.g. if I take the train instead of the bus to sports training then I am more likely to get there in time (so I test both and compare)
Investigating problem situations with agility and communicating solutions effectively
e.g. analysing and comparing the costs of streaming networks to make cost effective decisions
Discussing my mathematical discoveries
Explaining my mathematical choices
e.g. I decided to ride my bike to the destination because it was too far to walk
Using mathematics to logically justify my processes and conclusions
Using mathematics to evaluate the reasonableness and limitations of conclusions
e.g. using statistics to support a reasonable conclusion about a historical event or geographical decision
Using mathematics to refine rational and concise arguments
e.g. using measurement data to support or critique a scientific argument
Sharing mathematical concepts through my play
e.g. using mathematical words, exploring size
Using mathematical language to express ideas
e.g. fairness, size, time
Being clear and coherent when sharing mathematical ideas
Discussing mathematical ideas
Engaging purposefully in mathematical discourse
e.g. collaborating to create common understandings and theories
