Learning about asking questions

Today Ms Donnell asked us, "What makes a good learner?"
Someone said, "Listening." Someone said, "Looking."
That was a really good start.
Someone said, "Lips closed." Someone else said, "Sitting quietly."
"Mmmm," said Ms Donnell. "We certainly need to do that to do good sitting at school, but will that help you learn well when you're playing a sport, like rugby?"
Well, we went on talking for a bit before Ms Donnell told us about asking questions.
That is so important that one time, Room 2 children made it a class rule: Ask lots of questions and be curious.
So today, we've been practicing making questions about the things we wanted to know more about for transportation.
If you click on the picture, it will take you to our voice thread and you can see the questions we thought of.

Good questions Room 2. It sounds like you have discovered lots about transportation already and will be learning even more exciting facts this Term. Look forward to seeing more of your work soon.
