Visuals to be used during the share the news part of the day. This is usually done during the morning meeting. I have students pick a partner first. Then I present the visual aid and read the question. Students turn to their partner and answer the question. They can say things they see on the paper as well as new ideas. After all students are done sharing with each other, I would have them come back to whole group and call on a few to share what they talked about. My students loved share the news! As the family unit of Tools of the Mind is usually at the beginning of the year, they are still doing a lot of practicing so be patient.
