Convergent & Algebraic Thinking:
We continued to challenge both returning and new students with more difficult logic puzzles to hone those convergent thinking skills. New students are ready to try tackling those puzzles independently next week!
Hands On Equations went well this week. We held tight with returning students, giving them an extra week on the current lesson to really solidify learning. New students continue to make progress as well!
We continued our Mindfulness practice with 4-7-8 Breathing. Give it a try when you need to relax or focus your attention!
We reviewed Stephen Covey's short video about "80th Birthday", so we could set some goals for our future selves. It might seem a long way into the future, but it's important to begin with the end in mind!
We continued our reading of Ungifted. Donovan thinks he may have a solution to the problem of Summer School for his new gifted friends, which would help him hide out at the Gifted Academy a little bit longer. Will his sister agree to help? We followed our reading time with self-introduction paragraphs in the style of the book. So far, they look amazing!
