Thoughts on "Thinking Time"

  • Nancy Box


Introduction: This fall I have been using Rebecca to do analytic thinking with my class. The boys and girls involved are first graders in a low socio-economic area of the city. The children are improving their thinking skills as a result of the course of study and can apply those skills in other academic and personal areas of their lives. Our "Thinking Time" is a period of about thirty minutes two or three times weekly.
