We used our divergent thinking to solve the tasks on our "Ungifted" F2OE. Some of the answers were AMAZING! We also used those convergent thinking skills to solve a logic puzzle.
We had a great Peer Coaching session today. The kids described their project to a peer and then provided feedback to each other about the project. There were some valuable insights and many insightful comments!
We continued our work in Hands On Equations with some tough lessons today. The kids are moving right along as they apply new strategies to solve increasingly more difficult problems.
We learned about the Space Shuttle Columbia and it's tragic end. Then we discussed the potential risks and costs associated with reaching for the really big dreams in life. We'll discuss this a bit more next week.
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with a review of "Why Humans Experience Anxiety". It always reminds us of a few important points!
We shared some samples of our personal "Ungifted" Intro Chapters. They were all funny and very clever! Then we read a bit more about Donovan's big problem, and how he helps his new friends out of their big problem.
