This pack is a great, fun way for students to tune into their thinking skills. Can be used as a 'warm-up' or for explicit teaching.
The school that I am currently at is hoping to gain Thinking Schools status and I think the Thinking Skills pack, with its varied activities, is a super resource. I like the way in which the activities have been organised; there is a link to Blooms/Andersons revised Taxonomy. Applying the Thinking Hats and certain of the Thinking Maps to the wonderful variety of activities can easily be achieved. Another brilliant pack, thank you.
We have just introduced Thinking Thursdays at m school, so this pack is really helpful, even id I don't use the exact resource it gives me ideas for different activities! perfect!
I regularly use the thinking skills pack with classes from P1 up to P7, too reinforce the skills we use in daily activities and as starter activities.
I have used this with a special needs year 7 class. For many of them processing thought is a struggle but this pack has increased their confidence and guided them into deeper thinking. It's been a great success and one which has given obvious enjoyment.
Thinking Skills is such an important thing to develop with the modern child who is so often hooked on TV and other media that does not require any creative thought. I use this pack with my Grade 2 class of 7 and 8 year old boys. They regularly astound me with their creative and "out of the box" thinking that is stimulated by this brilliant resource. Thank you.
I like to keep my P7 class (Scotland) on their toes by using different types of thinking skills. This pack is brilliant for keeping them on their toes and challenging their thinking. Keep up the excellent work!!
Now any chance of packs for critical literacy, WW2, Anne Frank, Holocaust Day.....
Thanks for all your hard work and if these packs were available!!
Power to you Mark 🙂
Thank you for this pack. I had an observation last week and the used the evaluation idea of 'which are better?' in my English lesson. worked brilliantly so thank you
Thank you for all your wonderful work. I have used items from a number of different packs. I am moving to a different classroom this year and your packs allow me to make my room much more interesting and exciting for both myself and the students. You have some really great ideas and I'm buzzing with excitement for how I will use them. Thanks again and please keep on giving us these amazing resources.
You have created an amazing collection of one-stop, thought-provoking resources for very busy people! As a substitute teacher, I keep dipping into this and other packs for fresh ideas/activities that students and their teachers love. As a former principal, I would highly recommend these packs to new teachers for their content and clarity, and also to more experienced teachers who may not consider themselves so hot in creating good visuals - moi included!
