Deep Thinking about Simple Triangles

Pleasant Valley teachers challenge students to be deep thinkers, no matter the age.  In Mrs. Groves Kindergarten class, students worked together to come up with the definition of a triangle.  Looking at different diagrams, students practiced private reasoning time (thinking quietly) to determine if they were, in fact, triangles.  Some had curved edges; some were missing chunks.  First, they took a moment to think, and then they discussed their ideas with their elbow partners.  Getting students to come up with ideas and then share them is all a par

t of becoming a good problem solver!
