Morning Share – We shared hurricane and weekend stories. Morning share time – fosters a community, builds confidence, and aids in communication (speaking/listening) skills).
Logic Puzzles – See today’s logic puzzle in the SOAR folder. We completed “Bookmark Designers” as a class and the students completed “Coat Hooks” independently. Children who solved the puzzle independently received a check or check plus/star. If your child continues to struggle with logic activities, please visit the resource section of the web site.
Chess - (Chess Video) Today we watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlTEQZ5Sy4E. We discussed controlling the center of the board, developing pieces, and protecting our king. I’ve noticed that children work their pawns and fail to develop the pieces. Chess is a complex game with lots to learn.
PBL – We continued our work on Pharaohs. Students used their journals, reading packets, and Internet to research Pharaohs. Students created an imaginary pharaoh using realistic ideas i.e. When he/she ruled, how he/she ruled, etc. Students created a seal for their pharaoh, and finally students presented their Pharaoh to the class.
