    17. 17. I’ve been thinking about a couple of things that we might do while you arehere and I wanted to run them by you all to see what you think! I also don’twant to plan you to death, so let me know if you all want to do is sleep inand be beach bums all week – I can do that too:Option #1 – A trip to Waterside Park, (It’s only a 5 minute ride, but Ithought the girls might like to get out on the water and plus it is only 50cents!) Once we get to Portsmouth, we can walk to the Children’s Museum– a hand-on, non-stuffy museum with a cool dinosaur exhibit there now. Ithought then we could have lunch at Portside – an outside eating place withtons of choices, and then take the ferry back to Norfolk.Option #2 – A day at Mount Trashmore- feeding ducks, flying kites, playingin the playground…a neat place built by local school kids. I thought a picnicthere might be fun too.Option #3 – A day (maybe two?) at the beach. If the girls are scared of thewaves, we could go to the bay side instead. If you have an umbrella orbeach chairs, bring them along. We only have two chairs and one smallumbrella to cover us.
    18. 18. PrecisionI want: A lot of detailed information Time to see that my work is correct To look up additional information To ask a lot of questions
    19. 19. What you see… Labels Non-fiction books or magazines A lot of specific words Use of new or more complex vocabulary Correcting others Quotation marks or underlining words
    20. 20. What you hear… “Isthis right? What’s the answer?” “Where can I find the answer?” “Well, actually…” “Wait a minute. I’m still writing.”
    21. 21. TechnicalI want: To be left alone while working To build things to show my skills To learn from real world experiences To do projects instead of paper and pencil assignments
    22. 22. What you see… Basic drawings in black and white Working alone Mulling Manipulating objects Taking objects apart Illustrations in place of words
    23. 23. What you hear… “When am I ever going to use this?” “I can do this myself!” “Its my work? I’ll do it on my own time.” No words, just actions
    24. 24. ConfluenceI want: to get started and ask for directions later. to do assignments in a unique way. encouragement for new ideas. to take risks with new ideas.
    25. 25. What you see… Excitement of sharing an idea or story Doodling Use of different voices when reading Wide range of color on illustrations Fiction books or magazines Various interpretations of the directions
    26. 26. What you hear… “Who will care if I do it differently?” “I’ve got another idea!” “I have lots of things started but not much finished!” “I love the word, ‘imagine!’” This is fun!
    27. 27. Personal Learning Profile Use As Needed Avoid First Sequence 34 Precision 28 Technical 10 Reasoning Confluence 19SequenceI am a person who loves directions. I want to know what is expected. I thrive ondoing things in order. I seek organization, although sometimes it looks like a mess.I like consistency and dependability. I plan then act.PrecisionI use this as needed. I like trivia. I challenge statements that I doubt. I like peopleto share information with me. I read to have information to develop my plan.TechnicalI do not like to work by myself. I do not care about how things work. I avoid usinginstruments or tools. I rely on directions to lead me to the solution. I get frustratedbecause I can not figure things out.ConfluenceI will take calculated risks. I connect things. I can see the big picture. I do not likesurprises or changes that are unexpected. I have ideas.
