Our next lesson is about the TALK strategy for solving problems with friends. Do you know what the acronym stands for? Click here to learn what it stands for if you do not know 🙂
We always try to give girls some kind of reminder so they can remember the strategy (and review it in all subsequent lessons) but girls LOVE trinkets, so we try to come up with different ways for them to wear and remember this super important problem solving strategy.

The funny part? I am not at all crafty. In fact, when I came up with the idea of making a *real* bracelet that actually hooked together, I had to call the bead company to get help with all the parts to make it come together. After watching a You Tube video, I figured out how to use a “crimp tube” which finishes the ends of the wire around the hooks. So, wish me luck as I keep making more for our next lesson.
We are on spring break this week, which means that we got to do some much needed face to face planning! We got so much done 🙂
We have been toying around with the idea of doing less whole group instruction and more work in stations. It all came together today, including my idea of incorporating a variation of Literacy Through Photography in our lessons.
My hope is that by breaking up the content into stations, we will be able to keep the younger girls’ attention longer. And, we have ways to collect information to help with goal setting from week to week.
Super proud of what we put together today and look forward to more as we learn and grow!
