We started off with our book to finish the chapter about the Balloon Merry-Go-Round. Hmm...the kids found a little bit of foreshadowing. Ask about that! At the end of the day, we read most of chapter 9, which was about the Balloon Life Raft. The kids are picking up all sorts of literary techniques and humor in this book! Fantastic higher level thinking skills here! We didn't get to the Kahoot, so we'll jump right into that next week--first thing!
We worked hard on both our convergent thinking skills, with the choice of a grid or Perplexor logic puzzle, and our divergent thinking skills with a Halloween SCAMPER. Their ideas were incredibly creative! Check them out by our classroom.
Algebraic Thinking Skills:
We tackled more word problems today, strengthening those algebraic skills and critical thinking skills. Good job on the hard work today!
We continued our mindfulness practice with some information about how to reduce our worries: Kick Logic Back Into Gear.
We had a blast watching a fun video about creating a "Bunny Copter" from PBS Kids "Cyberchase-Fairy Borg Father". Then the kids tried to make their own Bunny Copters. The had a blast testing them out with different modifications each time. Check out the photos of the fun below!
Until next time,
