This week the Saints in our Gentleness Fruit Stand put on their “Thinking Caps” and constructed “Double Bubble Thinking Maps”, following the reading of “A Day With The Beavers” (chapter 5 of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe).
They created mental visual patterns for comparing and contrasting two settings from the book. The character “Lucy” visited the cave of Mr. Tumnus, and all four Pevensie children visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Beaver. After rereading the text in paragraph form, the students “mapped out” their thoughts about similarities and differences with erasable markers on large, laminated mats concerning aspects of both settings. They were then able to transfer their ideas onto permanent double bubble maps to make clearer connections to the text.
Check out some of the pictures— Reading on bean bags with Kindles and working on “Thinking Mats” for “Double Bubble Thinking Maps”!
And………Stay tuned for more “blog- spots” featuring our Saints from the Gentleness Fruit Stand. Have a blessed weekend!
