Stations: We used our convergent thinking skills to solve some tough logic puzzles. Then we used our divergent thinking skills to collaborate on a creative problem solving task. The finished sculptures were really interesting! We also tested our evaluative and convergent thinking with some "Word Winks" puzzles. Ask your child about these!
Algebraic Thinking: Our returning students worked on some in-depth study of word problems with our Hands-On-Equations kits, while our new students worked through more challenging equations today. They all did a great job!
Focus Study: We jumped right into our Problem Based Learning unit: "Audrey Aims, Art Conservator". Today we began to get acquainted with Audrey and completed a KWIQ chart to guide our research next week.
Novel Study: We continued with our book and made some great connections with our Audrey Aims unit. Hmm...these things might go together!? Our main characters are getting close to discovering some important clues about the mysterious stature. Can't wait to see what happens next!
