It felt great to be back today. The welcome I received from the kids was one of the best feeling in the world. The grade 5 to 7 teachers have been working hard this year to help students recognize and build their critical thinking skills. One of the ways in which we have done this is by purchasing board games that require strategy, problem solving, patience and so much more. Today the students were given a Critical Thinking Life Skills sheet that clearly outlined skills they need in life and that need to be used during these games. It was wonderful to hear and see the strategies that the students were using as they played. Afterwards they took time to reflect on what skills they used and which ones they need to focus more on. A very powerful and fun activity.
No homework unless you are working on your Socials projects due to extensions given.
