We discussed different ways to show fairness in every day situations. The kids came up with some great ideas!
We used critical and algebraic thinking to solve a Math Versatiles. The kids enjoyed this hands-on format!
We read a few more chapters of our novel. We used our convergent thinking skills to solve another Fallen Phrase puzzle. The kids did a good job using critical thinking to predict what happened to our Robot E. They also connected our affective learning and Weighty Words to listing character traits of two of the main characters. Check out the amazing list they created in the photos! The kids finished up by writing about a time when they had to stand up for a friend.
We tried a new way to do Stations today--Logical/Divergent thinking games and Study Hall. Those who had unfinished work got their things finished. The others had time to use their convergent and/or divergent thinking, as well as collaboration and respect for others. It was a good start. We'll try it again in Mid April.
Until next time,
