Leo the Late Bloomer

Our concept this term is 'He waka eke noa - We're all in this together'. We are exploring ways that we can learn with and from each other. We have been doing some work on growth mindset - a never give up attitude.

Our teacher read us the story 'Leo the Late Bloomer'. It is a about a young tiger, named Leo, who doesn't yet know how to read, how to write, how to eat nicely, or how to share his ideas. His father is waiting for him to bloom...but of course Leo does it in his own good time. Patience, persistence and perseverance is the key to learning new things.

We create some 'blooming' flowers in class. The words inside are things we might tell ourselves when things get hard and we feel like giving up. Have a look at our beautiful work!
