Well, this week in L.A. we thought about our thoughts. I know, it sounds weird, but it was really fun!
There were words like hearing, seeing, working, creating, and listening! It was all very inspiring (which was a word on the thinking map) and it was definitely one of my favorite Language Arts classes ever! I never really thought about what was happening in my head, but now, after that one class, I can’t not think about my thinking!
There were a few phrases too, and one of them was Working together. I think, in our class that’s a big one. We all think on our own, but our whole class is a very good team.
Another phrase was predicting (what if…) when you are reading. I have always been doing that, but I never noticed I was until now!
Listening and learning were both up there, but there very self explanatory, so I won’t tell about them.
Two main things I think we do as we think is asking, wondering. We ask questions, wonder things (even though we don’t always say them) but we do. If we didn’t ask questions, we would never think!
Inspiring, understanding. asking, wondering, creating, seeing, hearing, working, listening, learning, predicting, believing, THINKING!
