Hello and thanks so much to those of you who prayed for me today! I was observed by my principal during a science lesson... it went well, and she left a really nice note saying that she enjoyed my "enthusiasm" and that my students are obviously "active learners." Needless to say, I was very nervous and I am now very, very, very relieved! My students behaved well (though some called out), and I didn't make any huge blunders.
My lesson was on photosynthesis, so I created a "recipe" for photosynthesis. Each student received a recipe card, and they wrote a recipe for photosynthesis on it. It'll be really nice when it comes time to study for the test! Students will already have a flash card!
My family is downstairs watching the election results come in, so I guess I'm going to go join them... it's going to be a long night. All I have to say is NOBAMA!
