Raise your hand if your Saturday's are sacred!! My hand is way up in the air! I try to make Saturday a day to sleep in, relax and try not to think about school (I save that for Sunday nights!). So, when the option to attend an all day training on Picture Perfect Science was offered, my first instinct was to
scream say NO!
However, what is the one thing a teacher likes more than sleep and
relaxation?? Something for free!! Those who attended the workshop
were given the book Picture Perfect Science Lessons and $100. I said yes.
I am so glad that I gave up my Saturday to listen to Emily Morgan speak
about using children's books to teach science. The workshop was so engaging and informative. Emily did several lessons from her books. She has
a book geared towards grades 3-6 and one geared towards grades K-4. They
were so much fun and I can't wait to use them in my classroom. We have
such little time to teach science that I am always looking for ways to fit it
in to my day. Her lessons are organized using the 5 Es Instructional
Model and reading strategies are embedded throughout! If you'd like to
