PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dr. Seuss Think Dots - Differentiated Critical Thinking Activities to Help You Celebrate!

In my classroom, I'm constantly looking for ways to encourage students to think critically and to apply their knowledge, rather than simply sharing what they know on a fill in the blank worksheet. I teach gifted and high ability third grade students, and no two days are ever alike in my room! I incorporate reading and writing across the curriculum... These think dots are a great way to incorporate creative thinking as you celebrate Dr. Seuss!

Think dots are a differentiation strategy designed to encourage higher level thinking. Each “dot” contains a task, with the tasks increasing in cognitive demand the higher the dot number. Students select a task by rolling a dice or by choice (allowing for differentiation by student interest and learning style). As the teacher, you decide how many dots your students must complete. Think dots can be used as a stand alone activity, as a center, or in small group settings!

This download includes a think dots board of activities related to Dr. Seuss.The activities on this board were designed with gifted third graders in mind, but could be used with any level of upper elementary students.
