For today's February Freebie, I am offering my newest product, Destination: Imagination via Creative Thinking Vol. 2.
These 18 activities allow students to share projects and ideas with a purpose. They are a wonderful home-school connection that directs eager parents to work with their children in a constructive manner. An eclectic collection of activities developed for use in gifted and talented classrooms, the goal is to promote the 4 traits of gifted children: fluency, flexibility, elaboration and originality. But really, what child wouldn't benefit from working on those aspects? I have found the project works very well with heterogeneous groups and have successfully used it with 1st - 5th graders.
The activities are structured to be used in 1 week intervals: assignment sheets go home with a due date; products are shared one week later. Included are copy ready assignment sheets, notes to the teacher, and participation certificates. Some are designed to be used seasonally; others are appropriate to any time of the year.
If you haven't tried Destination: Imagination via Creative Thinking Vol. 1, be sure to take a look. These activities are extremely popular with parents and, of course, children. Try them, I think you'll like them.
