Problem Solving with Miss Toth

Today in Math we had a special visiter.  Miss Toth, a coordinator from our division came to work on problem solving with us. 
First we talked about how we problem solve everyday.  We shared examples on different ways that we have problem solved in the past, such as, when we have had to put furniture together, when we have baked a cake and when one of our dogs was lost and we needed to find it.
We spoke about different things that we need to do in order to come to a solution.  
We need to have a plan!
We need to be persistent!
We need to work together!
We may need to a few times using different ways and approaches.

Mis Toth showed us two videos, one in which the person did not try to problem solve and one where the boy DID us his problem solving abilities. 

This man was not a very good problem solver!

Audri is an awesome problem solver.  

After we watched the video's Mme Boychuk and Miss Toth gave us our own question.  We worked in groups of 4 to come up with different solutions.  It was hard, but we DID NOT give up.  We worked together and we came up with three solutions as a class.  Some groups came up with a few more.  
IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! Thank you Miss Toth for coming to work with us.
