Our Hands On Equations is going strong! The new Target Kids have learned a new Legal Move to help with solving equations. They're doing great! Our returning students are definitely back in the groove, using their strategies with more confidence!
Logical thinking is growing stronger each session! The new kids are using their critical thinking skills more easily to solve the different puzzles. This is great progress!
We read independently and also as a class. During the independent reading the kids tried a new online tool to assess their critical thinking. It's called Socrative. They seemed to be pretty challenged by the questions, especially because they had to work independently. Looks like this will be a good thing to try again!
We started a mini-unit on goal setting with an interesting video about a future 80th Birthday Party. The kids worked on visualizing what their friends and families would say about them at their party. This is a good start to looking ahead at the future.
The progress on Genius Hour was good this week! The kids are working hard making changes and moving forward after last week's Peer Coaching Session. The last class to work on the projects will be March 14th. Projects will be presented on March 21st and March 28th from 8-9am. Parents are invited to attend. More details to come!
HW: Edmodo-Genius Hour Project Update
