Now that we have learned about all eight different intelligences, our magnet man is complete. As we learn and share during the day, students enjoy identifying which parts of magnet man we are using. Sometimes we are using three or more smarts, and other times we use only one or two. It's become a game! Students have enjoyed MI man so much this year that as soon as the class marble jar is full, we will be making our own mini MI magnet men as a craftivity celebration!
Tomorrow is OPEN HOUSE! The students completed a "smarts survey" today to show their parents. I know the parents will enjoy looking at their child's brain maps, self portraits, and MI surveys. I am always amazed at how children view themselves and how they are able to set personal goals for their learning.
Many times I have parents take the survey about their child before I show them the survey their child completed. Feel free to download my MI survey and use with your students to identify their learning styles and strengths.
