This product takes thinking routines (from Making Thinking Visible) and uses them in conjunction with Unstoppable Me! This book has poems to explain ten ways to soar through life. Each poem explains a saying and gives an example. Thinking Routines are routines that build classroom culture. They are used to introduce and explore ideas, synthesize and organize thinking and digging deeper into ideas.

This unit is set up with a lesson for each poem. Each lesson incorporates a different thinking routine from Making Thinking Visible by Ritchhart, Church and Morrison. It begins with teacher directions. Then, there are two sheets. One is in color to project for the students during the explanation. The other is in blackline to copy for students.

I love lessons that make students think deep and consider why. You’ll see that some lessons were pegged closely to the material and others are more general so that you could use them with different lessons.

Feel free to download the preview first to get an idea of what the product is like- just be aware as I had to remove frames and backgrounds from the preview to keep it small. Most pages have the background and frame in the paid version.

You need to buy the book separately. I got mine on Amazon. I prefer the Kindle versions. I can just project them for the kids.

Enjoy! I love these thinking routines and I think you will too. Thanks for purchasing my product and leaving feedback!
