Teacher Review for Thomas Was Alone

Great character builder and logical thinking.

Submitted December 17, 2013

How I Use It

This is great after doing logic puzzles in math. The students then had background knowledge and then were able to use this during center time on their own without any help to build upon skills already learned.

My Take

Great with my younger students to work on character building. It also aligns with logical thinking. Some puzzles are easier than others so it works great with a wide range of abilities. I liked the fact that it included character building and made the students stop and think.
