I am currently in the Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Program at San Diego State University. I received my bachelors degree in psychology at SDSU. I am committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging, and supportive for all students. I think that there will always be more to learn and believe that if we consider ourselves as life long learners, that we can instill that experience into our students as well. I am excited to learn more about how to provide a productive classroom environment and effective curriculum that will help provide my students with the best education possible.

I am also a student teacher at the moment and think this is a great question. I think that teachers can use textbooks as a resource, but should no longer be reading straight from the textbook as their only source of science teaching throughout the classroom. However, I am interested to see what others have to say on the subject.

Yes, I agree! Creativity is hard to grade, but I think it can be very beneficial throughout a students education throughout all subject matters!

Here are some more ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/bluskyz/kindergarten-science/ . Another great way to incorporate science into the classroom is to simply have a class plant or pet that they will get to constantly observe! Another idea that a friend did in her classroom was to study the life cycle of a pumpkin throughout the October and thanksgiving months, maybe even grow your own pumpkin!
