reading post

Task: use the ‘get it, sort it, use it’ model of inquiry to find out about the commonwealth games and share what we have learned.

WALT: use our prior knowledge to help us understand what we read.  (Get it)
WALT: Summarise what we read to help us understand what we read.   (Get it and Sort it)
WALT: use what we have learned from our reading. (Use it)

Success Criteria
ü 10 questions
ü Only one correct answer per question
ü Clear questions (not ambiguous)
ü Image matches the question

Reflection Questions

I followed the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry getting the info for the questions i get in the future because it could help one day.

My next step when I use the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process is do it fast because I don't that fast.

The fun part of the Get it, Sort it, Use it inquiry process was to watch more commonwealth games because I don't that much.
Great reflection Qwade, you have made the connection between using the 'get it, sort it, use it' inquiry model for this reading task and how you can use it to help you with your learning in the future!
You used your reading strategies to help as you read to make meaning and grow your understanding and knowledge about the Commonwealth Games. You and your group worked to create a kahoot and we had fun using them in class. When using kahoot, it can be tricky to make sure there is only one answer and the questions are clear.
