The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 5

The Good:
One of my 3rd graders drew this for me. I wish it was on paper so I could save it forever.

The Random:
We had a quick meeting this week over lunch and our principal brought snacks (teachers are easily bribed with food). We couldn't get over these massive berries!

The Fun:
I am loving my States of Matter unit in second grade! Our inquiries have been super fun and the kids are learning loads. During our study of gasses, we did a dancing raisins lab and the kids were so enthralled watching the carbonation work it's magic.

The strawberries look delicious! It’s wonderful to get healthy snacks. Teachers normally get cake or cookies...

What a fun lab activity! I wonder if the kids will try to replicate it at home to show parents?

I think you could make a photo copy of the white board drawing! Well at least you have a photo!

States of matter was always one of my favorite concepts to teach. Love the raisins in soda water idea!

You are a super ninja, Tamar! I love that! At least you have the photograph of it now. Maybe you could photocopy it onto paper before erasing it? And there is something with the strawberries right now because I just bought some and they were abnormally oversized as well. I guess that’s what happens when they inject hormones into everything we eat! Now I need to try this dancing raisins experiment with my kids.

Would you mind if I were to use this post format for some of my posts? I am constantly taking pictures and I feel this would be a good way for me to get back into blogging.

Beautiful drawing. But it depends what kind of food. My principal brings all this healthly food and no one touches it-lol. She once put out a spread for 50 people and not much was touched.

You make such a great ninja! Super cute and least you got a picture to save it that way. Cool science lab experiment. Sound like the kids loved it.
