Convergent & Algebraic Thinking:
We started our convergent thinking with a story about Dudley the Detective. He was looking for clues to solve two mysteries! We helped him solve the first one and solved the second mystery ourselves. Then we used our convergent thinking skills to solve a logic puzzle.
In math, we began our study of algebra with some basics about what equal means. We thought of as many number sentences as possible that could have the same value as 2 + 5. They came up with some creative, yet true ways to show the value of 7. Nice job!
We also practiced our Mindfulness with Progressive Relaxation. The kids did very well and were ready to focus on the next task. We watched a new video, Belly Breathing. The kids liked the music!
HW: Write the name of a Mystery Book.
