To be fair, I did start a little late. My first day was right after Labor Day, which is a little funny since I started late due to some hard labor. :)
She's pretty cute though. Totally worth it.
But now I've been at this school thing for a month and I know you're wondering what we're up to. Allow me to catch you up.
We did a Mystery Matter experiment! While studying physical properties, I found some liquids that we could describe without being able to use one of the physical properties- color. Students used toothpicks to help them examine the liquids.
Here you see students filling out their graphic organizers.
They had to use their 5 senses, yes, including taste, to be able to describe the liquids. I told students that none of the liquids would hurt them, but not all of them were truly edible. In other words, you can take a lick, but not a drink! I had students dip their toothpicks in the Mystery Matter and put it on their fingers, then they could lick their finger.
This was our first Mystery Matter that I modeled for the class. It's clear Karo syrup.
Here's how we described the Karo Syrup.
Our chart- ready for our observations!

Keep checking back to see what we're up to! I promise to get better at this posting stuff this year! I might just make you look at some cute pics of my baby though.
