I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. I’m glad so many of you were able to check out my classroom rewards freebie. I appreciate the feedback I have received by e-mail, comments on this blog, and commments at my TpT store.
While I continue to add more and more projects to my plate this summer, I am reminded at how frustrated I am with science. We use the FOSS science kits in my district. I love the hands-on approach and enjoy the units that I teach. However, I find that as new science standards are revealed, our curriculum is further and further away from meeting those standards. I want to continue using the FOSS kits, but I want to supplement with some additional mini-units. So I ask…what are you using to teach science that teaches systems and/or the scientific process?
I have recently finished updating one of my word sorts. It focuses on -ing endings. It is currently available at my TpT store for free. I hope that someone can use this in their own classroom. All I ask is for some feedback in the comments section here, at my TpT store, or even by e-mail. Click on the picture to grab this free file.

This is perfect for teaching my students about -ing ending. Thanks for sharing!

Could you send me your email? I have chosen to give a product of your choice to all the participants of "naming the computer" giveaway.
Have a wonderful day!
We use something similar to FOSS kits. It does seem like they are not aligned. Do you have yours all year or do you have them sent to you?

PBS has a great STEM website. All STEM based learning follows the the scientific method. NASA also has some great lessons. Our campus uses the FOSS kits as well. I teach reading, so I'm not positive how well they align.
To help stock our science labs, we do a Science Scavenger hunt at the beginning of the year. Each item on the list has an assigned number of points. When you reach "X" # of points you get a free homework pass (limit 2).
