Developing Thinking Skills Task Cards for the IB PYP

Developing Thinking Skills Task Cards for the IB PYP

Thinking skills combined with reading, speaking, listening and drama! These printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the growth mindset directly within the Thinking skills developed within the IB PYP’S Transdisciplinary Skills or Approaches to Learning as they are now known. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think positively of themselves and others in various scenarios that are easily relatable to them. They are asked to reflect on situations that require analysing, synthesising, categorising and evaluating, present doubt, possible antagonism, confidence issues and other difficulties. As you help the children with these thinking skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. The orange cards are more challenging text. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Teacher led – read aloud a card to a small group and have them interact with each other to solve the problem or scenario. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the social problems presented on the task cards. You will find 32 task cards ready to print and go. I also have similar sets for all of the skills: Research, Self Management, Social and Communication. You can find many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. You may like my posters explaining the Approaches to Learning Skills . There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Exam Results Day'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet.

Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
