I am using this wonderful book and then a drawing of us as scientists. You really need this one...it is a great intro to what is science...
|We will also make a great graphic organizer to send with the kinders to their rooms!|
I am going to be using this sheet with the fun book, Are You My Mother?
For my third graders, we start our year with measurement. I still have to make my mock rocks, people, but it doesn't stop us from measuring in the garden. Yes, the garden. First, however...we will be learning to measure in the room. That seems to be something our kiddos forget. I am using some great sheets from the Science Penguin.
As for our 4th and 5th graders, I am working on team building and working together to persevere over a hard experiment. This is what we are doing...thanks to the Smart Chick I am using Can You Save Fred? It's a freebie. Yea!
So, there you have it...my week in a nut shell. If you want to know what I have been doing last week, well trying hard to finish my summer projects, some TPT units. Here is a peek...
|This is what I am starting after our first week with my kinders. I am so excited! Force and Motion on TPT|
|My kinders will follow with a five senses unit...5 Senses Science on TPT... then....|
|We will finish up with Weather and Climate. I think I now have the new NGSS science standards covered.|
Weather and Climate
I am working on finishing my variable unit to add to my FOSS lessons. My goal is next week so that I can use it. It is good to goal set. I learned that from some great TPT authors. Wish me luck on my start of the new school year. The pressure is on to improve our test scores...so October's focus will be on our 4th graders studying for the WKCE tests.
Happy Labor Day!
