Teaching with Intention Book Study Chapter 4

Can I just say that I love this book!!!! It is dead on so far on every topic that it is written about. It is a breath of fresh air in all that is polluting the world of education!!! Well enough with my ranting! I am linking up for chapter four of the book Teaching with Intention.

 If you do not have this book and want to read it please click on the book below and it will take you to Amazon!

The hosts for this chapter are:

Chapter 4 was about classroom culture. We must promote a culture that supports thinking and what better way then to share how we think. It is important for us to model how we think. Think aloud! Show the students how we too must think about things and we also ask questions and we wonder as well. Model how to think about different concepts. Modeling this is essentially teaching this skill.

My kids use my brainstorming sheets to share what they are thinking and to display their thinking on different topics! They love to write down what they are thinking and share it with their groups and the class. Here is the sheet they use. Feel free to download and use it if you like!
