Teaching science can be the best part of your day! Let me do the planning for you!

Teachers love teaching science but the planning for it can be overwhelming and with such an emphasis on literacy, in many schools, science gets set aside as a specialty. Teachers need resources that are already planned for them, use low-cost materials, and integrate literacy into science activities. 

This is why I create informational text passages with my science units so that teachers can easily integrate ELA standards and science standards in a way that is meaningful and interesting for the students. 

I have lots of experience in creating a curriculum. When I was a young teacher we had outdated science textbooks if we had any at all. I began using my science background to create my own labs and inserts for interactive notebooks. I then expanded to create entire units that were integrated with informational text passages that I wrote myself. Other teachers begin asking to use my units and that is how I got started creating science resources.  

I have been teaching for over 34 years!  I have a K-12 license and I taught elementary for a number of years. I have also taught Science Methods at two universities in their Professional Teacher Education Programs. My Master’s Degree is in Curriculum and Instruction and I just love creating science resources that are aligned with the NGSS and Utah SEEd standards. 

Along the way, I completed some research on interactive notebooks which I presented at several conferences and I won two awards for it. One award was from the Center for Scholastic Inquiry and the other was from Utah Valley University Engaged Learning Conference.

In 2019 I was also honored to win a Faculty Excellence Award at Utah Valley University. 

In 2019 I also spoke at the Teachers Pay Teachers Annual Conference on creating Standards-based resources.

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!
