Changing How We Use Energy

Changing How We Use Energy

In this lesson students find out which appliances in their classroom use energy and work together to create agreements for the classroom about switching off and adjusting these appliances. The lesson ends with students making informative stickers for these appliances. Students will use comprehension strategies to build literal meaning about key ideas and information in texts. They’ll be able to identify way to reduce energy use of items in class, clearly express instructions about how to use an appliance and work in groups to plan a text.

Amazing Women - Montessori 3 Part Cards

Amazing Women - Montessori 3 Part Cards

Women’s History Month begins on March 1st in the U.S.A. and these cards will help introduce your children to 16 of the most amazing women! My only problem in making these was trying to decide who to include. We could be easily rotating sets of these all month! (As a matter of fact, I suggest it so that the children don’t become too overwhelmed.) These are traditional three part cards, featuring two matching image cards and a label for each subject. There are 16 subjects, including Maria Montessori. I’ve also created a simple folder for these that you can print on card stock. Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my work! Mary
