We continued to stretch our convergent thinking with logic puzzles in two different formats. We also used critical thinking and divergent thinking to work on our words of the week: Ostracize & Paradox. The kids are getting so good at the words that they always predict the word before I can even finish the story. Wow! That's pretty good!
We continued our work on visual note taking with more sketch noting. This week we worked on lettering (typography) and frames, bullets, and connectors. We had a chance to practice with a short video about making a nature journal. This will be part of the topic for our in-school field trip with the Chattachoochee Nature Center. Check out our graphics below:
We continued to delve into more difficult algebraic thinking by tackling equations with parentheses. This lesson is the last for Level 1. We'll work a bit more on these concepts with some application of word problems.
We worked a bit more on creating/filming our character trait videos with a demonstration of the power of the Aurasma app that we'll be using to put it all together. It's a pretty cool augmented reality app! It's also FREE! Look for more with Aurasma next year!
HW: Create a sketch note of Quixotic after reading the Weighty Word story.
Until next week,
