Metacognition is when you fully understand what you are doing. Ms.White has been saying that we need to think deeper. Thinking deeper is not always easy. That is why you have to think things through and brainstorm.
When we are writing, what does your head do while thinking? Maybe you are remembering or looking back to find something to write about.
As we did the "Silent Chalk Talk" yesterday, Ms. White asked "What does your head do when you are thinking?" Well, I did not have an idea the first time that we started. So, I watched the words fill the paper from other kids. Then the ideas flooded in to my head.
This is the first year that I have been inspired to think deeper. I am not in an ordinary class, in this class deep thinking is everything.
