We worked hard this week on our math problem solving and critical thinking skills! Some kids finished up their Hands On Equations Assessments, while others tackled a Math Problem Solving task. We continued this critical thinking focus with playing the card game "24".
Later we worked more on our divergent thinking and our novel study. We also squeezed in some reading about the history of the Vietnam War because it ties in with our novel. The kids used one of our favorite techniques, Sketchnoting to capture the main ideas of a short video on Growth Mindset. Ask your child for examples of a growth mindset.
We practiced our mindfulness techniques with Cloud Breathing.
Look for news about our upcoming unit: Ultimate Connections--Bridges!
