The transition of our inventory to a new warehouse is taking longer than we anticipated. As a result, we are experiencing fulfillment delays and order(s) are taking longer to ship out. We are working hard to get the stock moved to our new facility as quickly as possible so that we are better equipped to meet your needs. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

In this article, she discusses how integrating can be very stressful and overwhelming. Teachers must find a way to teach using three dimensional ideas but also align with NGSS and GSE standards. While this is difficult, teachers must monitor progress to see what works or doesn’t work. Monitoring this will help the teacher plan better in the future for future lessons.

This article is the on-the-ground thinking of a 4th and 5th grade science teacher. The author gives herself and you permission to be overwhelmed but she doesn't leave you in that place. She gently leads you through some of the changes she made in her classroom. She talks about doing something that is hard for all of us, throwing out that favorite activity because it is no longer appropriate with the new science standards. She also helps us by sharing that she didn't throw out everything. She did use the rubric to review the resource and then she made adjustments as needed. Betsy shows us this is doable. We need to change our instruction but maybe we don't need to change it all at once and its okay to go slow. Thanks Betsy for some feet on the ground advice! Reading this article is well worth your time!
