Amelon...Keep Calm and use your THINKING MAPS!

Thinking Maps are for improving the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics as well as for problem-solving and the development of higher-order thinking abilities. A wealth of research and published articles supports the use of different types of Visual Tools generally, and Thinking Maps specifically. New brain research provides even greater insights into why most students perform better when using Thinking Maps.

This week we are working on THE BUBBLE MAP!  This map is used to describe, use vivid language, use your five senses, qualities, attributes, characteristics, and properties...remember ADJECTIVES ONLY!  This map will help students build a rich vocabulary.

Practice a Bubble Map at home and let the THINKING begin!

Amelon...Keep Calm and use your THINKING MAPS!

The Thinking Maps® model program consists of eight maps that correspond with fundamental thinking processes. The Circle Map is used for defining in context; the Bubble Map, describing with adjectives; the Flow Map, sequencing and ordering; the Brace Map, identifying part/whole relationships; the Tree Map, classifying/grouping; the Double Bubble Map, comparing and contrasting; the Multi-Flow Map, analyzing causes and effects; and the Bridge Map, seeing analogies.
