We used our mathematical and critical thinking to solve a variety of challenging word problems. They were more difficult than the kids first thought and required a second look for many.
We learned a new puzzle using convergent thinking-"Drop Quotes". The kids loved trying to figure out the quotes from our book!
We also used our convergent thinking to solve jigsaw puzzles, play Qwirkle, and play chess. The kids are also developing their communication and collaboration skills during these game sessions.
We read a bit more of our novel, finishing up by using our evaluative thinking to answer some questions about the chapters.
The kids were super creative using their divergent thinking to make some marvelous Egg Transformations! Check them out on the Bulletin Board, if you head down our way!
We continued our work on character traits with a short video and discussion of friendship, including the qualities that make a good friend. The kids did a good job on the reflections following our discussion.
Have a wonderful Spring Break!
