Gold Stars Lesson 10

Categories :

This semester has been so much fun that it’s hard to believe there are only 5 more Gold Stars lessons to go! I would love to have you join in me the fall for Brown Teddy Bears! CLICK HERE if you haven’t already registered.

Children tend to be divergent thinkers; they can generate many ideas and possibilities from a single situation. Of course some of their ideas are nonsensical, but those wild and unusual ideas are also creative! Allowing children to exercise and express their creativity enhances their general thinking skills and problem-solving abilities.
Problem-solving skills are also increased when children are allowed to make choices, and making choices boosts confidence and fosters responsibility. The Aiken Drum activity is particularly valuable as it encourages children to make choices and express their creative nature!

Optional home fun activity: Make the Aiken Drum cutouts on page. 31 & 33 of your workbook
(Remember, these activities are optional but can be a great bonding experience to do with your child during the week.)

For my convenience, I have preloaded content for the whole semester. I will update each future post with specific time-sensitive info before I send the link each week. If you choose to read ahead you might see details that don’t apply to your child’s class. For this reason I do not recommend reading ahead. Thank you!
