In September we will be talking about being scientists. We really want all of the children to see themselves as scientists. We watched a PowerPoint twice. The first time just to get info then the second time to see what tools and safety items they used. The K-1 children listened to the book What Do Scientists Do by Deanna Jump. The 2-5th graders helped read the book:
we made copies of the left side pages and then just had the kids read the sheets.

I am hoping to borrow a teacher's lab coat to make our first, of many, class books. This week, we talked about being safe. We all signed a contract about being safe. We even got a science log.Inside the front cover, we have science expectations. The first time we used our logs, we talked about tools. I gave the K-1 a typed list of tools and they illustrated the words. The 2-5 graders had to come up with their own and illustrate them.
We have the kindergartners practice their names each and every day.
