Brain Booster - Today's is easy. Can you solve it? Click here. (Higher Level Thinking Skills).
PBL - How can I promote my community? Partners finally began designing their websites. I gave an introduction on website design using Weebly. We discussed creating pages, copying/saving/pasting/editing images, linking, etc. Ask your child to see his/her site. They should have the login information they need to visit the site. See pictures below. (Advanced Research Skills, Advanced Communication Skills, Creativity Skills).
Logic Puzzles - We solved "Baby Sitting" and "Turtle Race." Ask your child how he/she used logic to solve today's puzzles. (Higher Order Thinking Skills, Logic Skills).
Math Stars - I gave the children an assortment of math activities to give them a math challenge for the day. The packets included everything from volume, algebra, rounding, fractions, etc. Partners worked together to solve the problems and everyone was stumped at least once or twice (see SOAR folder) (higher level thinking skills).
Centers - Pivot, Chess, Qwirkle, Words on my Mind, Tablets, Keva Blocks (Higher Order Thinking Skills, Logic Skills, Creativity Skills).
