Follow Frenzy: Thank you for the TPT Seller Challenge

Challenge 4 is called Follow Frenzy.  It is a time where we recognize and thank those that we met in the challenge.  This challenge has been a great experience for me in connecting with other teachers.  I have spent so much time focusing on writing investigations that I forgot about connecting with people as well. 

This challenge has been inspiring, but it still reminds me of the uphill battle I have in integrating more hand-on science into the elementary classroom.  I received lots of positive feedback.  I think I need to start surveying teachers on what they look for in hands-on science.  I learned that some school districts don't allow any animals in the classroom.  For those teachers my fish investigation would not be relevant.  Even my kids school does not have safety goggles for students.  Through this challenge I hope to continue to connect with teachers and feel inspired to create age appropriate investigations.

Memorable moments in science create memorable and positive experiences in learning.

I now am connected to several pages and blogs that are very helpful.
 
 
I learned more about clipart and terms of use.  TPTer's are so nice and helpful.  Everyone seems to want everyone to find success.  I think it makes us all better teachers.
 
 
Swapping products was such a great way to get feedback.  I made changes to my investigation and it is better for it.
 
 
The 4 teachers that set this up deserve a big round of applause.  I am sure this has kept them busy.
 
 
 
Now that I have more connections I am excited to continue to work on my products.  I have an exciting year of classes planned.  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Be sure to check out my Facebook and TPT Store too.    Enter the Rafflecopter to be entered to win a digital download of Science Show and Tell.  My first rafflecopter ever!!!
