We reviewed our Lesson 6 concepts with an Extra Practice. The kids are definitely ready to move on to the next lesson, the start of Level 2!!!
The kids sorted the Global Goals and prioritized those they thought were most important. We watched a read aloud of Beatrice's Goat to illustrate how much poverty impacts people all over the world. The kids chose their country to research for our Model United Nations debate. We'll be researching different aspects of the countries and how they are working on the Global Goals. We learned about how many people live in poverty around the world and how scarce resources are.
The kids worked on the August F2OE, focusing on creating things to show fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. There ideas are SO creative! Love these great thinkers!
We read a few more chapters of Front Desk. The kids thought about whether it is better to have something for a short while before it is taken away or to never have it at all. It was a good discussion!
The kids read an article, "You Can Grow Your Intelligence". They learned all about how we can impact our learning and intelligence through what we chose to do. They shared "Wow!" facts during our "Whip Around". So many great ideas! We continued our Mindfulness practice with "Why Humans Experience Anxiety?". The kids enjoyed doing a couple moments of mindful breathing.
Until next time,
