It's magnetizing!

Just last Friday my 1st grade kiddos finished up a unit on magnets.  I love teaching science at this age because they are so curious about everything!  This magnet unit was a great way to bring in some hands on science practice.  None of these lessons are super intense--all I'm looking for is a way to teach the content, but still keep the main focus on learning English.  So anyways, enjoy these magnet lesson plans and please let me know if you use them!  :]

I hope you've all had a pleasant Monday.  My Mondays are never that bad...Tuesday is when the weekend hits me and I feel exhausted all of the sudden.  Am I the only one, or do any of you guys deal with that Tuesday sleepiness, too?

Random notes:
1) I bought a Kindle Fire a couple weeks ago and I really like it.  So far I've read three different books on it.  For a long time I thought I'd never get one, but I like that it's an eReader and a tablet.  Anyone else biting the bullet and jumping on the eReader bandwagon?
2) Today and tomorrow are parent/teacher conferences!  My first ones ever...can you sense the little bit of nervousness?  :] 
3) Moe's Monday is the  Five dollars for a burrito, chips, and a drink?  Score!

Ok, enough randomness.  Have a marevelous rest of your Monday!  :]


  1. Thank you for sharing your lesson plan. Scavenger hunts are always a big hit :)

  2. Yes, but I got the eReader that is ONLY an eReader. Because I'm committed to my books and not the angry birds. It has nothing to do with the fact that the Fire was not out when I bought mine. I'll say here what I always say, "Against the eReader? Try living overseas."

    1. 1) I don't have angry birds. I think it goes against my religion or something...
      (but I did give in and downloaded words with friends)

      2) Suuuuuure, it has nothing to do with the fact that the fire wasn't out yet...

      But for real, thanks go to you and Hazel for helping me catch the eReader bug. Obviously I think ya'll are pretty darn cool.

  3. I felt the same way about the eReaders. I didn't think I would ever want one. I wanted to hold the book. But I changed my mind and got one for Christmas. And I absolutely love it. I love how it does everything!

  4. Oh, and sweetie, I've passed on the Top 10 blog award to you. Love, love, love your blog xx
