The Middle Years - working together for school success

 

Time to Think!

 

Becoming a good thinker will help your middle grader solve problems and make daily decisions. Use these fun family activities to grow her creative and critical thinking skills. 

  • If an alien came to Earth and found  roller skate, what might he think it could be used for? Take turns calling out answers. For example your child may say the wheels would make a good back massager. Continue until no one can think of a new answer. 
  • Secretly think of an object and imagine you are holding it. "Pass" it to another person, who tries to guess your item based on how you handle it. For example, how would you hold and pass an ice cube, a bowling ball, a hot potato, or a Frisbee? After guessing, the catcher pretends it's something different and passes it to the next family member.
