We continued our coding with two lessons on Code.org, learning about how to program through a maze and how to program to create a drawing. Later, we used those ideas to program our robots to introduce themselves with a recording and then move forward 2 feet. The kids had a blast with this!
Convergent Thinking Skills
We worked on our logical thinking skills with a Perplexor and a Grid Logic puzzle. They are definitely making progress with their convergent problem solving skills!
Algebraic Thinking Skills
We continued our algebra work today with Hands On Equations. The kids are making great progress, learning a new legal move today! This will definitely help them solve new equations!
Today we continued our mindfulness practice with a review of "Fear vs. Anxiety". This video explains how anxiety can create the same physical sensations as fear of a real danger. Then we practiced our breathing to relax and focus our attention before the next activity with "Hot Air Balloon".
We continued our reading of House of Robots. We finally heard all the crazy details of what happened on E's first day of school. What a disaster!
