The second day of school began more smoothly and it shows that students are already adjusting to the routine. The nice thing about today is that it marks the first normal day of school. Normal? Yes! Special area classes began today with my homeroom going to the media center.
This day's focus was still on reinforcing expectations and procedures. Then, I gave the students a tour of my Weebly page to get them familiar with the site and its contents.
Afterwards, we began the initial science notebook set-up. We started at the beginning with the cover page where they designed it themselves. The rule? Make it your own! We then did the second page which was the table of contents.
The science lesson was more STEM-related in which the students build parachutes out of a coffee filter, four pieces of string, a washer for weight, and tape. That's was all! We managed to get them assembled so we will finish tomorrow with the actual testing. So, tomorrow will be very action-packed with trying to get a lot done. I thought that 90 minutes would be so much time to plan for but instead the time just flies by.
Below is a gallery of some of the students' work in various stages of progress with the different activities today.
