Affective Skills:

We learned about Fixed vs. Growth Mindset. Check out the videos to see for yourself how we're laying a foundation for the kids to move forward in developing a Growth Mindset.

Algebraic Thinking Skills:

We worked on a Math Stars Problem-Solving set to challenge in all sorts of math topics. The kids learned a little about Stem & Leaf plots, which is a middle school topic! Pretty cool stuff!

Unit/Novel Study:

We worked on a design for our Parade Floats, which we'll construct next week. The kids also finished their Balloon Designs and Fact Books. Take a peek at these outside our classroom. They look marvelous! We also used our divergent thinking to work on a fluency/flexibility activity about balloon travel.

Stations:

We did some analogy basics to test our convergent thinking skills, focusing on synonyms. They did quite well, especially given the first exposure! We also had some help from Ms. Haslet, our Tech Integration Specialist, to get our devices on Cobb's new wireless network.

Until next week,
