This is my first year teaching middle school science and my first year teaching outside of a trade school. What I love about middle school is that the students are developing a higher level of thinking and enjoy finding out how and why things work. You can really go into depth with the units that are being taught. 7th grade science is very lab heavy and I am excited to see the students work throughout each unit and to see each student develop their interactive notebooks.
These materials will help create a welcoming learning environment. The materials will help create an organized classroom and help the students when they are working in small group as well as whole group instruction. The pencil sharpener will be nice to have in the classroom. The students can come into class and sharpen their pencils before the period begins. The timers, markers, and lap boards will help when we are working on small group presentations. The human body model will help when discussing anatomy. The model will also be used when students are finished with their work or when a student needs a break from the class work.
