I really do....and I was very excited to start something new this year for "Matter". I always feel like I'm doing the same old thing, year after year, so this year I went shopping for a new twist or activity that seemed to jump start my "Matter" unit!
I found a "Science Pack: Properties and States of Matter" from Chrissy over at "Buzzing with Ms. B"
and today we got into the molecules of matter.....
Friend help friends in our room.....
We use our "Science Logs" to glue everything inside!
They made their own definitions after they experimented with matter!
I think they love SCIENCE too!
One of my goals this year was to blog at least once a week with pictures...so far I've been 'better' than last year...
Did I mention I went to a Common Core workshop on Tuesday?
Fun Times! I met up with a blogging buddy "The Resourceful Apple", that was special!
Now it is up to the 4 of us from our little school (900+ students) to help implement the CCSS into 2nd grade while fine tuning it in K-1st....this should be an easy sale...right?
I am afraid that we might receive a bit of resistance from the "You can't make me" crowd! Any ideas how to reassure the naysayers that with a little teamwork, we CAN do it????
I hope we do it right!
