Catch-up Week - RCCNB

by Mrs. Nilsen on February 17th, 2013

Weekly Science News 2/11 - 2/15

Sometimes in life, we just need to slow down.  I know that I get so busy and my life gets so full that I forget how lucky I am and how much I have going for me in life.  As I was doing our Science Notebook check-ins last Friday, Feb. 8th, I was noticing that students were pretty stressed and that there were far too many missing assignments.  I know that Science has been so chalk-full of things lately, that perhaps we need to also, take time to breathe and remember that we enjoy learning.  

I gave students this week to breathe and catch up.  The assignment is called "RCCNB" which stands for "Review, Complete, and Correct NoteBooks."  Students were given time on Monday and Thursday to work in their notebooks finding work that needed to be finished, adding more thoughts and connections, or reviewing past work to help with studying for tests in the future.  Tuesday and Wednesday were given as Science Fair work periods.  We've got a LOT going on!  Just look below at our past couple of weeks and you'll see that.  This week, we slowed down to make sure that everyone could have a better chance at being successful.

Next week we'll dive back into Science content, with our first ever Poetry unit!  Confused?  Don't be - just tune in to next week's blog to see how in the world Poetry fits with studying the Solar System, Genetics, or Climate Change!
