When I visit schools and talk to teachers in between sessions at conferences, I always hear something along the lines of, “there’s just note enough time for science & social studies!!!!”
I feel you. I really do.
There’s barely enough time in our day to teach the skills we need to teach in the first place!
And then every teacher on Earth said…
This method of planning helps us to integrate science into literacy AND math so that we’re hitting every subject, everyday.
For August, we’re keeping it simple because we know how crazy busy this first month of school can be. We designed a month’s worth of daily content (lessons & activities), but kept the activities relatively simple and repetitive so that they would be easy to explain and implement and build familiarity and confidence within our kids. We wanted to provide activities that help to establish expectations as well as excite and engage kids in science concepts.
Science for beginners!!!! We wanted to help you set the stage while teaching the basics.
TONS of vocabulary, non-fiction books, posters, lessons, and activities!!!
We are so excited about going back to school and plan on starting this year with a BANG!!!!!
