The Station Rotation was filled with good learning opportunities! We continued with logic puzzles and sequences for convergent thinking. For divergent thinking we worked on a "Think, Turn, & Think". We also worked on critical thinking with a Versatiles activity.
We created our Illuminated Manuscripts today by drawing an elaborate initial, coloring our drawings, and then washing over the whole thing with watercolor paints. The finished products were AMAZING! Check them out this week on display outside our classroom.
We continued our Mindfulness Moments with a short guided relaxation. View it here: Awareness of Breath.
We continued Hands-On-Equations with different groups to meet everyone's learning needs. Our new students are doing great, while our returning students finished their work on creating equations from word problems and moved on to Lesson 9-"Using the Star".
Medieval Unit Collaboration/Research:
Expert Groups collaborated on projects again! They are really coming along!
We read two more chapters in our novel, The Whipping Boy. Jemmi couldn't believe that Prince Brat is so stubborn and dense as to mess up the Escape Plan! We focused on identification of figurative language in these chapters.
HW: Edmodo-Write a short update about progress on your Medieval Project. Tell what you have finished, and what is left to work on.
Until Next Week,
