Check out these Element Superhero/Villain Narratives. (swipe for some incredible student samples) My students picked an element from the Periodic Table, learned about the characteristics of that element, created a superhero or villain, then wrote a fictional narrative, weaving in about 5 facts into their story. They also had to write a brief catchphrase too. They formatted everything in Google Slides but hand drew their characters. I created individual name tags in the comic book speech bubble style and I LOVE them so much!!! 🤓 Everyone’s finished piece turned out so amazing!! ❤️ Thanks to my wonderful colleague @cateacher_123 for sharing this crazy cool idea last year t!! I can’t wait for you to post your resource on TPT soon!

#teacherhack When this photo came up in my feed by @mod@modernteaching I had to do EVERYTHING to stop myself running to the shops at 10pm to get some jars!!! ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Play based learning has been such an important part of my teaching rhythm, especially when teaching prep. So often on Friday afternoons I’ll pull out some craft activities and just watch the kids dive in, with big smiles and their brains ticking.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Would you use these in your classroom?!! Even getting the kids to help put everything back in the jars would be a learning experience in itself!⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Photo by @modernteaching

This year’s food chain collage turned out better than ever! I’m almost ready for our Open House next Tuesday, although this is way too much color for my simple classroom. (My students made a Google Slide presentation of their food web first, then chose one of the food chains to make the collage. The QR code takes the viewer to their digital presentation.) #iteach5th #iteachfifth #scienceisfun #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #craftingteachers #artandscience #foo#foodchainage #foodchain #pinterest #pinterestteacher

Did I HEAR someone say long weekend?!!! Commonly confused words: HEAR vs. LISTEN TO HEAR (vb.): to sense a sound with our ears. When we hear something, it is by chance. We are not actively paying attention or waiting for the sound. LISTEN TO (vb.): to give your attention to a sound. When we listen, we are actively concentrating on the sound. We can listen to a sound (a song, a speech) that is in progress. Or, we can listen for a sound that we are expecting. This means we are quietly waiting for the sound.
