The first Kidsedchatnz of the term is in Week 2 and it's all about TEAMWORK! With a lot of classes looking at ANZAC day and Conflict I thought this would be an appropriate topic to talk about.

Before coming to the chat please watch the videos below.

Here are the questions!

Q1. How often do you work in a team or group in your class? What team or group activities do you do? 

Q2. Do you enjoy working in a team with others? Explain why or why not?

Q3. What are the key elements of teamwork? Why are they important?

Q4. In what ways are you a team player? What do you bring to a team?

Q5. Do you think it's important to be able to work with others? What are the benefits?

Q6. What can you do when someone is not pulling their weight in a team? What could you say?

Q7. In one of the videos is the ex-NBA Champions San Antonio Spurs. Who is your favourite team? Why do you like them?

Q8. When you get older employers are looking for people who can work in a team. What other skills are they looking for?

Q9. TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More. What do you think this means?

Q10. Make a short story, sentence or poem using these three words: Sharing - Encouragement - Friends

I look forward to seeing everyone in Week 2!
