Today was fun!  I spent a ton on clipart for Space and Technology Science Interactive Notebook.  I'm thrilled about the organization in my student journals!  This week my skills progression as led my group to Adjectives.  With one of my new purchases, I was able to create a fun freebie.  Link in first graphic!
 We will begin our lesson identifying different ways to use adjectives!  A great way to start the lesson is an interactive song about adjectives!  Link here.

I will share the above poster and read the list of describing words.  When needed, I will explain any unfamiliar vocabulary.  Students will then determine the person who'd wear the pair of shoes.  Also available are ballet shoes, and cowboy boots.

After students color their shoes, partners will work collaboratively to record 4 describing words to make their writing "sparkle".  Independently, students will create a sentence using new "sparkle" words.

The following day, I will use this song to review adjectives. My kids get really excited about music {especially the tunes that sound as though they belong on the radio).  Following the song, I will repeat the steps from the previous day with Whose Feet?  Animal feet represented include alligator, giraffe, and ape.

On the third day of instruction, we will focus on feeling and behaviors.  I will begin the lesson with this song from KidsTV123 (one of my favorite youtube channels).  Repeat instruction steps as previous days. 

Included are three boy and girl options.  To ensure each child's needs are met, I provided a blank doodle kid so that they can illustrate their own hair.  Students will create an expression and describe their feelings or behavior.  If you love the clipart, link through store buttons below.


Physical Science Interactive Journals

I sure hope you had a wonderful holiday!  I had a magnificent time visiting my family.  Not so wonderful moment when I broke my toe.  Since there isn't much I can do but put up my foot, I rested while finishing up the Physical Science Interactive Journal.

This journal is packed full of energy, matter, force, motion, sound, and so much more!  Take a peek for yourself...

Earth Science Interactive Journal {K-2}

Are you science notebooking?  It's a district requirement in which inspired me to make the collection of interactive science notebooks. We began our lessons with the understanding science by building schema on scientist, senses, observations, and the scientific method.  This portion of the unit is available as a freebie sample of my notebooks.  You can access the freebie here. I will include this portion in each notebook {Life Science, Earth Science available now AND Physical Science and Space Science available soon}.  This portion also provides the background, journal cover, and table of contents.

Yesterday I finally loaded my second journal for Earth Science...
