Probably like many teachers I’m always on the look out for things for my class to do first thing in the morning. I like to give them something that is accessible to everyone, is stimulating, encourages thought and is fun (no pressure then!).
One of the things I use that goes down well is a thunk. A thunk is a question which often has a yes or no answer but can go as deep as you want to take it with your class. It’s often hard not to get carried away with them. They can also make great ideas for starting RME lessons to encourage reflective thinking.
Here is an example and a poll to answer. Feel free to comment as well!
And here is the link to the Thunks site http://www.thunks.co.uk
Have a great Christmas,
