Hey everyone! I'm Krystal and I'm 22 years old. I'm an Elementary Education major and a big sister to a 8 year old named Krystina. My mother and I home school her and it has been great so far. Everything I do, I do it for her so it is important for me to finish my career and become an educator to many more children.
Energy (Types) Personal Collection
I plan to use these resources to help me plan my lesson for field assignment 2. I plan to teach a concept on the types of energy. I want the students to be involved in an inquiry lesson.

My Personal Collection
I will more than likely be focusing on the flow of energy through a food web. These resources seemed helpful for the teach I will be doing with 5th grade students. I will use these resources to help prepare my interview questions for the students.

Hey Julie, I think interactive notebooks are great. Keeping a science notebook encourages student to reflect on inquiry observations, activities and investigations. It is a great way for students to demonstrate their understanding of science concepts and for teachers to provide feedback. It's a good way for students to use writing as a process for discovery. They help students appreciate the proce...

Fri, Apr 06, 2018 11:20 AM in kids think I hate them?!?!
Hello, younger students can be more sensitive so don't feel back or reckon yourself about it. I'm currently doing field experience at schools and I also substitute. Sometimes when you act strict with the younger ones, they may interpret it as disliking them. It is important to create some time for engaging class discussions so that you can show students that you're listening to their ideas and car...

I love learning about the moon and its phases. I actually observed a fifth grade lesson in which the teacher incorporated Oreos to the lesson. The students removed the top of the Oreos and had to remove the cream with a spoon to show the different phases of the moon after learning about it.

You've selected good resources that will help you focus on the solar system. I like the journal article that mentions everyday activities that help teach students about the Sun. The article about other planets having summer can help students understand how seasons occur on Earth because of the tilt of the Earth on its axis. There is an activity that is really good in one of the articles, involving students measuring the length of their shadows at two different times of the day. You've made great choices for your collection.
Food Chain Collection
Wed, Mar 15, 2017 8:54 PM Food Chain Collection Review
Your collection is very useful because I will also be teaching about the food chain. You have some resources that I can also add to my collection to gain more knowledge within the topic and help me teach it. I have a 5th grade class and I also have 'Surviving Winter in The Dust Bowl' and 'Teaching Through Trade Books' in my collection. There is a good book chapter titled 'What Does an Animal Eat?' that you should look into. Overall, your collection seems great.
