We gave our Salad Bar logic puzzle our best try, but most need more time and perhaps a few hints to get past some obstacles. We'll try it again next class.
We made excellent progress in Hands-On-Equations today with both groups moving forward to a new lesson. While the word problems were a bit tough at first, once the format is familiar, the algebraic part is pretty easy. That's great!
We watched a couple of interesting mindfulness videos on GoZen today:
Anxiety and Gratitude.
The kids did a great job collaborating on their group posters to share what they learned about their game topic from their research. We were impressed by the posters and the participation during the presentations. Good work!
We read another chapter of the The Gollywhopper Games and did some analytical and evaluative thinking in our discussion groups. Gil was faced with a tempting offer and a tough decision. Next class, we have a SUPER big surprise planned. The kids will LOVE it!
