We planned our Mystery Stories by completing our Story Maps, including clues and solution to the mystery. The kids will start writing next week.
We did a group task sorting character traits into categories. It was a good warm-up to introduce vocabulary for our Affective work this year. We also read a book, Too Many Tamales, and discussed the character traits we saw in the characters.
We continued our Mindfulness practice with "Why Humans Experience Anxiety?". The kids enjoyed doing a couple moments of mindful breathing.
We used our convergent and evaluative thinking to solve logic puzzles and visual thinking problems with our Versatiles. The kids did a great job! Then they used their communication skills and divergent thinking to create visual vocabulary for two more Weighty Words, Dogmatic and Expedient. Ask your child what those words mean.
We read another chapter in Big Bad Detective Agency. The kids are keeping track of clues and suspects.
Until next time,
