Kindergarten Teacher in Disguise

Welcome to Strawberry Shake!  I'm excited to be a part of the Best for the Best blog hop sponsored by Amy at Teaching in Blue Jeans!

The activity I'm sharing on this blog hop is one of my favorites.  There are color and black and white cut/sort/paste activities for your students, words for your word wall, and trading cards to give your students as rewards for a job well done.  And there are additional pages for students to review the concepts they've learned by coloring and writing the names of living and non-living things in the pictures.

Though I've been teaching high school science for more than 20 years, it's time to face the truth.  I admit it, I'm a kindergarten teacher at heart.  I love the natural curiosity of kindergarteners, the fearlessness, the silly things they do.  I also love to be crafty and creative and silly, too!  I like science.  No, I love science.  I want to know how and why everything works the way it does.  I love animals and plants and nature and figuring out how they all fit together in this amazing world.  And, I want to share my excitement and enthusiasm and wonder with kids of all ages!

I hope to be able to use my knowledge, experience and expertise, along with my crafty, creative self to make fun and engaging science activities for kids.  I've had so many elementary science teachers tell me that science is their least favorite part of teaching.  That makes me sad.  I want to make teaching science easier for elementary teachers who may not have liked getting their hands dirty or investigating living things when they were young.  Science shouldn't be scary or difficult to share.
