    Bundle Description
    This Year-Long BUNDLE pack of my Daily Dendrite Challenge series is a paperless, digital resource that includes a variety of brain-teasers, logical thinking questions, problem-solving challenges, riddles, and critical thinking activities for primary learners. The resource is NO-PREP and PAPERLESS! Simply project the calendar onto your screen, click on a challenge, and give your students’ brains some exercise!

    Each month features a theme and includes one challenge for every day of the month! This digital bundle includes NINE months of Daily Dendrite Challenges- enough for the whole school year!

    What is a year-long bundle?
    A year-long bundle means this bundled resource includes the SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER, JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH, APRIL, and MAY digital daily dendrite challenges. Purchasing this MONEY-SAVING bundle will get you one month of the Daily Dendrite Challenge for FREE compared to purchasing all nine months individually.

    Is each month be centered around a specific theme?
    YES! Please understand that each month includes a THEME that is set around a holiday or a season. If you do not plan on using resources with the themes or holidays listed below, it may be more helpful for you to purchase the Daily Dendrite Challenges on an individual, month-by-month basis based on what will work best for you. In the future, additional Dendrite Challenges that are more general and not seasonal may be created by the author. However, at this time, the monthly resources are not editable or available for customization unless in the event of a technical error by the author. Thank you for your understanding!

    How can this resource benefit my primary students?
    Our students are not born with the ability to think critically. As educators, we have to help foster the importance of thinking and problem-solving. These teasers were created to help your students practice thinking critically, logically, creatively, and “out-of-the-box!” This resource was designed as a fun and engaging way for students to practice thinking creatively and critically. Furthermore, problem-solving, persistence and an ability to see situations from different viewpoints are essential skills students need to develop.

    ”I like to try things before I buy them. Can I try it out?
    Of course! As with most of my resources, I’ve included a free sample in the preview file. This free sample is created using a PDF file that is clickable. Simply download the free preview file (top of this page, on the left) and try three FREE challenges!

    How do I use this resource?
    To use the resource, simply project the slideshow OR the clickable PDF file your screen or device. Both versions are provided for you! To use the slideshow version, you will need a device that has Microsoft PowerPoint installed. Then, simply click on the day’s critical thinking challenge and share it with the class. Your students can work as a whole class, individually, in partners or in small groups. The resource is self-checking (when applicable) and encourages students to try the challenge again if they click on the incorrect answer.

    What do I need to use this resource?
    Since this is a paperless, digital resource that you simply need to project, I suggest having students show their work or thinking on whiteboards using a dry-erase marker, or in a notebook. (This is not needed for every challenge, but you may wish to have students use whiteboards or notebooks for the open-ended questions so that they can explain their thinking and reasoning.)

    How can the Dendrite Challenge fit into my daily schedule?
    There are many different ways and times you can use this resource in your classroom. Some suggestions for use include:
    • as a “wake-up” challenge in the morning
    • “exit” challenge at the end of the day
    • morning meeting
    • transitions
    • right before or after lunch
    • as a small group “warm-up” activity for the brain!
    • …there are so many possibilities!

    Who will best benefit from this resource?
    Kindergarten students will benefit greatly from this resource with the facilitation and assistance of their teacher. First-grade and second-grade students will be able to complete the tasks more independently. At times, you, as the educator, will want to model some of your thinking and problem-solving ideas. However, before long, your students will quickly begin to impress you with their powerful thinking skills! This resource is also ideal for homeschool curriculums.

    I hope you LOVE this digital critical thinking resource. If you have any questions, please ask prior to purchasing. I can be reached at christina@missdecarbo.com
