One very important skill for learning is the ability to think about ideas in many different ways. Flexible thinking helps you be open to learning new concepts, think of different solutions to problems, and understand other people’s ideas. If you aren’t used to thinking about ideas in different ways, practice with the pages in this kit to start to expand your thoughts. Consider what you would think in a certain situation, and then try to come up what another person might think. Take a look at some pictures to see what your initial thought is about what is happening and then try to come up with alternate ideas about what else might be happening. Identify the uses of common items and then think of other ways you migh use that same item. When you are finished, practice these three strategies in your daily life to begin to develop the skill of thinking flexibly.
