In Primary Education Thinking Skills 3 the characters continue to blend their thinking skills in a problem-solving format as in PETS 2. More complex problems in logic, invention, visual perception, and evaluation develop these thinking strategies more fully in the young learner through stories and whole class games and activities. Small group follow-up lessons provide additional activities. These small group lessons stimulate students with high-interest, challenging activities, more intensive thinking games, and a variety of hands-on puzzles to solve. Detailed lesson plans are provided for the whole class and small group lessons.
I am the gifted resource teacher at a PK-6th grade school. For the last 4 years I have been using “Primary Education Thinking Skills” with all of the first grade classes on a regular basis. I go into each of the classrooms weekly with new lessons from PETS. The teachers stay in the classroom and use this time to observe their own students. Teachers and parents love the skills taught by these fun loving characters. The students often make comments throughout the week such as “You mean to think like Dudley?”! I use PETS books 2 and 3 in the resource class with the gifted students!…
