Literacy
Depth of knowledge is important because it helps us understand the thought processes needed to comprehend and solve problems. One way to help students gain confidence is to give them ample thinking time. This will help them process and organize their ideas in order to present them in an articulated manner. 

You can help by prompting students or providing them with the depth of knowledge question stems listed below. The higher the level, the deeper the thinking!
Question Stems #1 
Question Stems #2

Math
Get ready for brain stretches with some algebra puzzles by finding the values of the shapes, also known as variables! Pick the level that is just right for your student:
Easy
Medium
Hard

Science
The study of density is so fascinating! With this experiment, students are able to see the different densities of liquids, then test them out by adding objects. This is a popular experiment, but this one requires the most common household items and is the easiest to recreate.

Social-Emotional Wellness
One of the most powerful things students can do that is within their control is acknowledge and manage their emotions. This takes practice, not only when feeling sad or upset, but also when feeling happy or excited. The mindfulness workbook, linked below, provides various strategies to recognize and process these thoughts and feelings in a tangible way, perfect for kinesthetic learners!
