I am so excited for the next two weeks! On Monday, I am off to Charlotte to participate in the E4 STEM pilot program! Then, I'll be heading back home to Maryland for some quality family time before school starts. FINALLY, a summer vacation.
Before I go, I am really excited about my newest products in TPT! Check them out!
About halfway through last year, I started to really struggle with one of my Science classes. We have Science right after recess. By nature, it takes them a little while to cool down and relax. On top of that it was a rowdier class than the other. I was struggling getting the group to settle down and we ended up wasting quite a bit of time.
That was when I decided I needed some type of "bell work" for them to do when they walked in the door. Well, I searched and searched Google, TPT, and TN and found NOTHING that would fit my needs/wants! I already was using a spiral review in my math class which worked amazingly. I knew that that was what I wanted.
So, I created: Science Daily!
I finally created it, but by the time I had it created we were about a month out from state testing. So, instead of as bell work, we used it as review work! Really, this helped me to see how much review we really needed to do. Next year, it will be great to have that review/assessment happening daily.
So far, I have Cells and Body Systems, Matter and Heat, and Weather available and ready to go! Force & Motion and Ecosystems are on their way, as soon as I can get the Answer keys finished. :)

Matter and Heat:
- States of Matter
- Physical/Chemical Changes
- Physical/Chemical Properties
- Evaporation, Condensation, Melting, Freezing
- Weight vs. Mass
