I have learn to use backhand/forehand after learning the basics we then find a partner to practice serving to each other and hitting to each other.

We had to make sure that we hit it the shuttlecock gently so it won't hit anyone or it won't get stuck. Fraidoon and I did a competition we had to cooperate to hit the shuttlecock and not hitting it to the ground. Every time I pass it to Fraidoon I get 1 point for not hitting the shuttlecock in ground and also keep an eye for the shuttle so it won't hurt you/anyone. Fraidoon and I did a really good job for passing the shuttlecock to each other. Our final score was 46.

Explanation - How Children Learn At School

How Children Learn At School

 you ever wanted to know how your child is learning at school? There are so many ways children learn, like talking to others to give them more confidence.  They like to learn from each other by asking question and giving comments  

Children love trying new things and learning from them. They have the ability to think and reflect about there learning. They are capable of asking open ended question, which helps them learn even more.

Most kids have role models that they look up to. Watching their role models, it encourages them to be more like that person. Some kids like sport players and are eager to learn more about them.

Kids can communicate by giving feedback/feed forward to one another. They like to follow good examples in way which interests them. One way is that they practice their new skills to get better at it.

Children learn through numerous ways. They agree or disagree on other people opinion in a positive way. Kids learn best with and from each other.

Today I wrote an Explanation about How Children Learn at School. To write an Explanation you need to include a Title, Introduction, Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2, Paragraph 3 and a Conclusion. Your Introduction should include a hook, for example a rhetorical question to get the reader interested.
