One of the great things that happens at the beginning of first grade is a series of Kingore lessons that Mrs. Berger comes to do with all of our classes. We gather together 6 times, doing a variety of different types of thinking over the course of the lessons. The first one was related to the book Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews.
In short, the lesson asks kids to think outside the box, and create a picture using 10 black dots (or in our case they were red or green circles!).
Kiddos were then asked to count out 10 dots from a bag, and get to work on their own Ten Dot creation. I’m excited to share their CREATIVE thinking:
How is that for a showcase of some AMAZING thinking?! I’m trying not to be embarrassed that I made a pizza….:) GREAT job, Rm. 202 kids!
