We used our critical and logical thinking to solve analogies today. The pictorial and verbal puzzles challenged our brains in a new way. I'm excited to see the kids taking these mental leaps!
We jumped right into the real stuff of algebraic thinking today. We learned how to do Legal Moves today. Ask your child how this works to help us solve the equations. The kids are doing well with this foundation to algebra!
We used our critical thinking and communication skills to learn today's word: Expedient. The kids had some good examples of how things can be done with expedience!
RBQ: Focus Study-
We jumped into our research by choosing individual questions from our list of 23 possible topics to research. We will be completing a contract--you'll see a copy next week. There is also a Research Process chart that goes step-by-step to keep the students on track through this long process. The due date is December 9th. Much of the work will be done in class, so dont' worry about getting started on this right away! :)
