This week, we spent time setting up our science notebooks. In preparation for future observation lessons, we went outside and had a listening field trip and made a list of everything we heard. Students did a great job of listing the most basic sounds like leaves crunching, foot steps on the concrete and birds by the pond.
This year, Mrs. Gus (art teacher) is teaching student how to do scientific drawings in their science notebooks and teaching students how to draw images like trees and leaves. Students are working hard adding detailed and accurate sketches to their notebooks.
We also changed our science and social studies rotation this week. I am going to be again teaching all science and social studies classes. We had played with the idea of Mrs. Anderson teaching science and me teaching social studies but due to scheduling we are going to stick our own classrooms.
