We worked on analogies, logic puzzles, and some clock arithmetic to dust off our convergent thinking skills. The kids did a great job on a pretty tough logic puzzle!
We read a bit more of our novel and talked about the ways Millie shows perseverance in the story.
We worked on setting some short and long term goals for this year. During this lesson, we also practiced a guided visualization of reaching one of these goals. We will continue to work on mindfulness in class this year. Research shows it can reduce stress, anxiety, and impulsivity in children. I hope they will learn to use these practices to help them feel calm and relaxed whenever they need it.
We shared the last of our Research Projects from last quarter.
HW: Write a paragraph about the steps you'll take to reach one of your goals.
Until next week,
