My Moon Diary



This is my moon diary for November. The eight moon phases are: New, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full, waning crescent, third quarter and waning gibbous.

A pattern that I found was that the moon got smaller than larger.

Today shawn (the police man) came and told us about leadership, he told us how he is a leader and how to be an effective leader. Here are some things shawn told us.

1: He told us when he was a kid he was shy. The meaning of that was to tell us to challenge yourself.

2: He also told us about what he dose as a police officer. The meaning of that was to be a role model

3: Lastly he told us how you don’t always get your way.


What do you think an effective leader needs?


Today at school Mrs Montgomery (our principal) told all the grade fives about leadership, these are the things that Mrs Montgomery told us that good leaders have.

Honesty: I know that a good leader needs to be honest no mater what.

Listening: I know that a good leader needs to listen to one another.

Trust your friends: I know that a good leader needs to have trust.

Stay strong: I know that a good leader needs to be strong and get over things that don’t go your way.

Sense of humour: I know that a good leader needs to be able to have a laugh and crack a joke every once in a while.

Teamwork: I know that a good leader needs to be able to work with others and do stuff as a team.

Focusing on what is important: I know that a good leader needs to Finnish the more important stuff other than the less important stuff.
