We continued our Hands On Equations with our beginners learning about Legal Moves! This will make solving equations so easy! Our middle group worked on using "Convenient Zeroes" in solving a variety of equations. While our advanced group continued their work with negative numbers.
We continued our study of Games with "Crash Course Games #3-The Dawn of Video Games". The kids enjoyed the video and learned a lot about video games from the Websites listed on our Target Glog.
We watched a short video about "My 80th Birthday Party" to begin our work on exploring our "Future Selves". The kids brainstormed ideas about how they want to be remembered on their 80th birthdays.
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with Mindful Breathing.
We stretched our convergent thinking with logic puzzles and REALLY worked our divergent thinking with a Jellyfish Transformation and creation of a Visual Image of what "Snapping Into Place" means (from our Novel Study). Take a look, outside our classroom, at the amazingly creative work the kids did on their transformations.
We continued our reading with chapters 9 and 10. Ellie's grandfather, Melvin, has hatched a plan to get back to this Science Lab and it may involve Ellie.
HW: NONE! Enjoy the Break!
Until next time,
