We worked on a new creativity activity today-F2OE: Fluency, Flexibility, Originality, Elaboration. I was impressed with the kids' elaboration skills!
Convergent & Algebraic Thinking:
We took a Benchmark Pretest, so we can see how much growth in algebraic and convergent thinking we have this semester. Can't wait to take a look and see where the kids are at. This will help us set up some flexible groups for logical thinking and Hands-On-Equations.
We also tried "Link Winks" again. The kids love these rhyming word puzzles!
We're moving along with our book. Millie is still afraid of reading aloud and of selling subscriptions to win the bicycle. She hasn't given up yet, but hasn't made a sale. We discussed how perseverance can help us reach our goals in life.
HW: Draw a scene of a time you did something you were afraid to do or nervous about. Include a caption and some speech bubbles.
See you next week!
