A blog of my daily activities. As a teacher that consists of what I do at my job. I caution the reader that, while I have checked the links and items I have added to my blog, should you or your child navigate away from this page you may find objectionable content on the internet. I strongly recommend that parents be involved and active in their child's life and education and that they be supervised when surfing the net. NOT associated with any school.

Today in class:
AWESOME TOOL ALERT! I am trying out a new tool for students and parents. This is a one way text message or email alert used for reminders about work, class discussions, and all sorts of nerdy things. If you would like to sign up to receive these alerts through text or email, follow the instructions below. I CANNOT receive texts or emails back from this system. In other words you cannot text me back to ask questions.

In class today I began talking about the SCIENTIFIC Method and described several experiments, pointing out the Independent variable- the variable you will change or manipulate and the Dependent variable which s the one that changes and can be measured. I also shared a power point with embedded video clips showing the steps in an experiment.
