  1. Listening- This is important because if we miss what you are explaining, then we won’t know what to do while everyone else knows

    Respecting others- This is important because you need to work together-without disrespecting- in order to finish the task.

    Being open minded- This is important because your thoughts may help with the task that you are focusing on.

  2. Ayana, I like how you word your thoughts…

    Listening is important because during this unit, we especially need others ideas and opinions for more understanding.

    Respecting others:
    Respecting others is important because you should work by yourself, or with your partner to finish on what you are doing.

    Being open minded:
    Being open minded is important because your ideas can help you with what you are working on.

    Being caring:
    Being caring is important because everyone is different. You should not laugh of others when they are sharing an opinion that helps you.

    I would like to SEE other peoples comments soon.

  3. Listening: I think this is important because we need to listen to other’s thoughts and ideas. We can learn things we didn’t know by listening to other ideas. Also, when someone finishes sharing their ideas, someone might have something to correct or add to. That’s when other people start joining in to add to the conversation.

    Respecting others: I think we need to respect other people when they are sharing ideas, and not laugh at them, or say they are incorrect.

    Being open-minded: We need to be open-minded to listen to other’s new ideas and share our thoughts.

    Being caring: We should be caring when commenting on other ideas. For example, we should not shout “BOO!!!!!” at them after they share. We should be kind and choose our words wisely, and say something like; “Yes, I think that it correct, but I would like to correct something in your second paragraph……” when we would like to add things.

    We need to be all these things in this unit, as well as in different units, depending on what the unit is about.

  14. Listening is important because, if you aren’t listening to other friends or the teacher you will not know what to do

    I will sit forward in class so I can listen to the teacher and I plan to listen carefully to my friends

    Respecting others is impotant because if you don’t respect your friend, he will feel bad like “Ohh he is not listening to what I’m saying then I wont listen too” and then you’re going to be more and more unfriendly with your friend if you aren’t respecting others

    I will respect others and I will listen carefully so I’m not going to lose my friends

    I think that it is important to be open minded towards other way of thinking and other believes because there are so many different religions and way of thinking.

    I have many friends from different countries with different beliefs. I think its interesting to hear what other people says.

    I think it’s important to care of other people because if you’re not caring about them, they are all like ” Ahh hé is not caring about us…. lets just ignore him”. Maybe they will be like that and then finally you’ve got no friends.

    I will always care about people and I will also care about people who don’t have that many friends and listen to them.
