Thinking Thursday is part of my morning work for the year. I use it in third grade, but it can easily be adapted to all grade levels. Each Thinking Thursday worksheet contains high-interest facts, a joke of the day, a daily riddle, a would you rather question, a trivia question, and a weekly word challenge. The students work on this for morning work and they can continue working on it during centers or if they have finished an assignment. It encourages higher-level thinking skills, creativity, and flexibility. We go over the answers at the end of each Thursday. Thinking Thursday is only part of my yearly morning routine. I also use Math Monday, Twitter Tuesday, Word Work Wednesday, and Facebook Friday. Feel free to check out my store for these items!
