Scientific Method and Chemical Science

We are doing some kitchen science and looking at and recording chemical change.
Last week we made sherbet and used the scientific method of creating and testing a hypothesis. 




These posters have helped us to work through the scientific process. 
Click on the images to see more



We are also using this word wall to record new words


There are two sets - I like the one with the science verbs on them.

Mother's Day ideas for you

Mother's Day is almost here!

As a mother - the most joyous thing my kids ever gave me were the handmade items that they made. 
They may have been rough, not polished, didn't cost very much but they will always remain my most treasured gifts.

To help you create these much loved items I have put together some resources for you.

There is a card that opens up that contain memories, stories and thoughts about how special mothers are. It does contain options for Mum, Mom, Mother, Grandma, Nan and Auntie.

The second pack is a powerpoint that contains facts to share with your grade.

The third pack has templates for creating a bouquet.

The last pack has step by step instructions to create a handbag with IOUs in it. There are also lots of writing tasks included for you to use.

Five for Friday - 15th April

fiveforfriday2_thumb[3]

Five for Friday is here so head on over to link up with Kacey

Work has been so busy - but lovely busy!

I have missed blogging like I used to, I have forgotten to take photos and I have missed the time to be as reflective.

So here I go with my five randoms for this week.

 

Autumn is here in Australia - I hope we have many blue skies to come.
I just love summer - but Autumn would be my second favourite season.



We started off our new term looking at our Indigenous Australians and what makes their culture so amazing.



On the 25th of April it will be ANZAC Day - so we have started looking at picture story books and discussing their common content.

 



Here is the link (click here) to may pack that contains reading responses that are open ended and fit any ANZAC Day picture story book. 





We are using Words Their Way and have really been getting our word sorts sorted!



Well almost!


My current project is making a Science Word Wall - this will be available in color and black/white. You will be able to display it and then add words to it as you brainstorm with your grade. 


Keep your eye out for it...
