The word of the week in Grade 4 is strategy. We have learned that applying the right strategies makes all the difference to our learning.
This week, each person chose 2 learning stations: one represented an area of strength and one was an area of weakness. We pre-tested ourselves, then applied some learning strategies, then tested ourselves again.
For example, at the logical station, people made lists, drew pictures and found patterns to solve hard Maths problems. At the musical station, people clapped rhythms, sang melodies and wrote the letters above the notes. At the visual-spatial station, people used basic shapes, shadows and hatching to improve their drawings.
Here’s someone at the musical intelligence. Look at that concentration!
Here’s someone at the bodily-kinesthetic station. Their strategies were watching the ball, keeping the bounces low and only moving their wrists.
We’ve had great fun this week but Ms O’Dwyer designed the tasks. Next week, we are in charge of our own potential! We are making action plans and taking charge of our own strengths and weaknesses. Stay tuned!
Which strategies worked well at each station? Which strategies didn’t work?
Did you use more than one intelligence at each station? Tell us about this.
