We still had a couple of students who were finishing up their books on Scribble Press, so I had the remaining students “play” with two activities – “Zoologic” and “GoGetter 1”. Both of these require you to use logic and visual thinking to solve the puzzles, which get increasingly harder. Although I haven’t formally introduced our Magician Thinking unit, these would fall under that category. They seem to be just the right level of challenge for these students, so I think we will continue with them next week – as well as some others.
