It's time for Five for Friday over at Doodle Bugs Teaching! This is a great link up to reflect on your week! I am GLAD it's Friday!
1) We had a few fun experiments this week in Science (teaching some Math skills!). One was called Sponge Squeeze. We let a sponge soak in a cup of water. Students estimated how many milliliters they thought they sponge held. We used graduated cylinders to measure.
2) Another fun activity was a car race! We estimated how many centimeters their car would travel. We used a meter stick and focused on the number of centimeters in one meter. Then, we used tape to mark spots on the floor for 100 centimeters, 200 centimeters, etc to help us measure.
3) If you've read my blog lately, you'll know that I am moving grade levels next year. I am looping up with my fourth graders to teach them again in fifth grade. Luckily, I don't have to move rooms, but I do need to switch out lots of materials. One of my goals is to clean out a drawer or a cabinet each day. I am hoping to start packing up 4th grade materials to give to the teacher who is moving to 4th grade and to start making room for 5th grade materials that the 5th grade teacher (she is moving) is starting to send me!
4) I am not a tech savvy girl at all, so I am going out on a limb here and making myself look like silly asking this....BUT, you never know if you don't ask! So, I am wanting to create binders for fifth grade materials and want cute papers like this to label with subjects. I have CUTE chevron paper, but how do I make the something like that scroll with words on it? Help! :)
