Week 31 words

We are working and getting ready for the upcoming TAKS test. The kids are very knowledgable in fifth grade science, and I am sure they will do great! I am just making sure that I cover all that is needed, so the kids will feel success next week on the test. I am excited for them! The words this week are review words. They have seen these words before, but I feel that it is important for them to see them again! The TAKS test will be next Thursday, April 29.

  1. Hi Mrs. M!
    Your site is clearly going to be very helpful to me as I am in my first year back to teaching after kids, and I'm teaching older students then I have previously, and all math and science! IS there ANY way you happen to have any of your resources easy to share? I would love almost anything! I'm sure you are busy with your kiddos, but I would love your help! Sorry I couldn't find any other contact info for you...

  2. I just found this blog, it looks great! I've always loved science but it hasn't actually been a set part of our curriculum until recently. I will be back here regularly!
    Right now I'm getting ready for the new year to begin next week with these cute cupcake pencil toppers I have made to give my class on their birthdays.
