Below you will see several images that display classroom examples of math and science lessons.
To teach math, I like to teach with the concrete to abstract approach. I always like to introduce a topic by modeling, and then letting students explore with manipulatives to investigate the concept. Some of lessons you see below include: -Using goldfish for graphing -Reading picture cards to create math sentences -Creating 3D shapes using marshmallows and tooth picks -Building symmetrical designs with tangrams -Completing math puzzles to sequence numbers -Designing math tools to practice skip counting
Science instruction is always hands on and interactive! We love using BrainPop Jr. to begin to understand a concept, create KWL charts to visualize our learning, and creating meaningful experiences to culminate our unit! Below you will see several examples of Science concepts I have taught: -Push & Pull by creating 3D train -Fire Safety by exploring the town Fire Truck -Using laptops to explore online science experiments via Discovery Ed. -Investigated pumpkin features and life cycles with individual student pumpkins -Hibernating animals by preparing a stuffed bear to hibernate in our classroom -Fam Field trip to celebrate our learning of farm animals
