The Station Rotation was filled with great learning! We continued our new logic puzzles for convergent thinking. For divergent thinking we planned a design for our Illuminated Manuscript Initials. We also worked on critical thinking with a Versatiles activity.
We learned about 4-7-8 breathing in our mindfulness moment. You can check it out here.
We jumped back into Hands-On-Equations with different groups to meet everyone's learning needs. Our new students are off to a strong start, while our returning students are moving along with their algebraic thinking by working on translating word problems into equations to solve.
Medieval Unit Collaboration/Research:
We collaborated in Expert Groups to research 6 student-chosen topics about Medieval Times. All worked well in their collaborations today. Students finished taking notes from their research using a Word document. Then they collaborated with their Expert Groups to decide on a way to share their learning! Great Job!
We read two more chapters in our novel, The Whipping Boy. The Prince and Jemmy are heading for trouble because of mistaken identity! We focused on the use of dramatic irony in these chapters.
HW: Edmodo-Tell about 3 facts that you've learned about your Medieval Expert Topic. Next HW: Describe a new punishment for Prince Brat. (Both due Feb 11).
