14-6-2016 Discovery time reflection

Today at discovery time I made oobleck
for 10 minutes. I made oobleck with Ruby, Jessika and Pippa. Brook, Lucy and Rosemary were leading it. Then after 5 minutes Will, Leon and Liam joined in. Then I had to wait for them to catch up. My struggle was when all the corn flour ran out I had to use plain flour and so it did not work as well. I could improve by getting more corn flour. I achieved how to make oobleck because I have never made oobleck before. My growth mindset was when it got too clumpy I was going to give up but I stopped and thought to myself I should keep going. I learnt that if i push the boundaries I can actually get somewhere in life.

  1. Hi Larissa. Will came home and taught our family how to make oobleck as he really enjoyed doing it with you at discovery time. I loved reading about how you showed a growth mindset and didn't give up when things didn't quite go to plan. That shows perseverance. I also enjoyed reading about all the interesting things you have been learning about in Kahukura - your class has certainly been busy. From Mrs O (Kohara)
