By exploring critical thinking and higher levels of thinking from the beginning, students can strengthen their problem-solving strategies and behaviors, and develop a critical thinking mindset. By the time they enter tested grade-levels, students have familiarity and confidence as critical thinkers to unpack questions and learn more complex concepts and skills.
By providing the foundational knowledge and skills at Grades 1 & 2, paired with early intervention in critical thinking teachers can save valuable time and reduce learning gaps commonly seen between tested grade levels.
ThinkUp! includes interactive, grade-level appropriate content with simplified language and visually appealing layout and graphics—customized for early readers. Content is built to stairstep students to prepare for tested grades and features rich, engaging activities that provide building-blocks for standards mastery.
