Our children will live and work in an Information Age that we can only imagine. As they master the basic skills of the three Rs, they must also develop a broader, higher-level set of thinking skills that will transfer to the content of the future. Given appropriate opportunities, the young mind is amazingly capable. Edmark's Thinkin Things Collection 1: Toony the Loons Lagoon is designed to offer young students experiences with a variety of thinking skills: memory, critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Thinkin Things Collection 1 celebrates intellectual diversity. A students musical and rhythmic intelligence may shine when working with Toony the Loon and his xylophones, or visual and spatial intelligence in creating with BLOX, or logical and mathematical intelligence with the Fripple Guides and Feathered Friends. In areas that may not come as naturally to some children, Thinkin Things Collection 1 offers warm, friendly experiences in which self-confidence is built, exploration and creativity are fostered, and persistence is rewarded with success. Thinkin Things Collection 1 also focuses attention on how students learn. Is a particular student more likely to remember what is seen or what is heard? How do they approach learning? Do they guess and test? Once something is discovered, do they use that information in another way to see what happens? Do they, for example, prefer to take Fripple orders at the door (both auditory and visual), on the phone (auditory only), or by mail (visual only)? Thinkin Things Collection 1 promotes learning in each students areas of strength while encouraging growth and building skills in other areas as well.
