We have been exploring our five senses. Students had the opportunity to feel different objects in disguised bags. Students felt into these bags and tried to describe each object. They compared their thinking with others at their tables. Then students recorded their thoughts in their science notebooks. Students also experimented with different smells. Each student was called up to close their eyes and take a smell from a disguised container. Students discussed with their friends and then recorded in their science journals. We also did a tasting experiment with several kids and their reactions and describing words were fun to see and hear.
I am beginning my 14th year of teaching at Chets Creek. I feel very blessed to be able to work so closely with my students and their families. I pride myself on giving 110% to my students and 110% to my family each day. My husband Hector and I have three terrific kids. Shalyn is beginning Second Grade this year and she is so excited! Canyon is an almost 5 year old who is full of life and energy! Marissa is also turning 5 soon and is a girly girl who loves to play and laugh. We love to spend time with family and friends, go to Gator Football games, and do other outside activities. We love to stay busy and live life to the fullest!
