PA and TD for the Week of 11-7

KTD Math will be playing SET with me this week to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

KTD Literacy will focus on rhyming words this week.  Groups will be using Scrabble tiles in a rhyme race with several twists and turns.  

1TD will be reading books in pairs focusing on how characters impact each other in stories and creating a web that illustrates the interactions. 

2TD will finish up their work on their version of A Giraffe and a Half. 

3PA will finish reading The Girl Who Owned a City this week. The kids will be working on a project in teams to show how they would survive by thinking and planning just like Lisa did in the novel. 

4PA will finish up their posters comparing the novel to the film version of The Secret Garden, we will have a Socratic Seminar about which version was better, and next week we will be creating our three part water color paintings. 

5PA will write their Capstone proposals this week in class.  The students will also continue to read The Crossover and Brown Girl Dreaming. 

What is Creative Problem Solving?
