The kids started out strong using their problem solving and divergent thinking to create some fantastic scenes for our movie! They got SO much done today! The teamwork was amazing!
We tackled word problems today. Boy was that a challenge! Applying the skills to actual problems is so much more complex than solving the basic equations. We'll keep plugging away, as the kids make progress!
We worked more on our dealing with Constructive Criticism today. We watched a neat video, "Water off a Duck's Back". Several of the kids made the connection immediately to how we could handle criticism. That was GREAT! We discussed useful strategies for situations when you might face criticism.
Later, we continued our mindfulness practice with Anxiety Relief with Widdle the Worrier and Til the Thinker and Cloud Breathing.
We reviewed our last chapter and continued on with The Way to Stay in Destiny. The kids are finding out more about Theo's past and what his uncle may have planned.
