We talked about how real scientists kept notebooks with their thoughts and drawings.
They were eager to share aloud, which I hadn't planned but it was a really nice few moments of reflecting.
This is something I'd like to make more time for. My students really enjoyed it. In the meeting they also talked about sentence stems like "I wonder...", etc. I could even put a morning work question like "What do you think would happen if...." and let them write their thoughts in their notebooks. I've got so many ideas and just not enough time I'm the day to do them!
