We continued to work on our Mystery stories. Most of the kids have completed their Story Map and are writing their stories.
We used our algebraic thinking skills to solve a Math Puzzle. It was tricky, but the kids solved it! Then, they used their convergent thinking to solve two different logic puzzles, a grid style and a Perplexor. Too easy again! I'll have to bump it up for next time! Finally, we continued our Weighty Word book with "Felicity" and "Geriatric". The kids did a marvelous job showing their creativity in finding images to illustrate their word.
We read another chapter of our book and now have a suspect list. Things are getting mysterious now!
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with "Fear vs. Anxiety" to help the kids tell the difference between real threats and anxiety. We also discussed strategies to help us calm anxiety.
We discussed an overview of our Character Traits and then dug in a bit to learn about Courage.
Until next time,
