Students from Grades 2-6 were celebrated this morning for demonstrating growth in the use of the executive function of Metacognition, represented by the character Aware Bear.
Aware Bear is a very thoughtful bear. He thinks a lot about how he thinks. He wears a hat to keep his brain safe and you get some extra special boosts of power from his awesome brain T-shirt which reminds him to think about is thinking. Metacognition is the skill that is needed in order to create strategies to help with all of the other executive functions.
