For our 2013-2014 co-op year, we are using Exploring Creation With Chemistry 2nd Edition by Jay Wile.
2013-2014 Chemistry Schedule – This is different than what I did for Biology. I am hoping the kids are old enough to be able to schedule their own study time. Pop quizzes will help with this. 😉
Other schedules can be found at DonngYoung.org.
A carbonless lab notebook is the answer to “I lost my lab”, “Yes I DID turn it in”. Now I can say just hand in your lab notebook and let me see! 🙂 Sweet! Normally I would like to use the Composition Notebook, but with only 1.5 hrs class time, once a week, it doesn’t work well. I need to be able to take the books home to grade.
If you have lefties that hate the spiral bound, you can find a top-bound book at Rock Solid.
Another awesome lab notebook paper can be found at Donnayoung.org.
Before students can enter the classroom, their parents and students must sign a Safety Rules agreement. You can see it here. This is just something I did that works with our classroom. You might need to add or delete from it.
I am excited and scared about facilitating this class. It is my first year and Chemistry is not my best subject. It probably isn’t even a good one. lol I am thankful to be learning right along with the students. My husband has graciously agreed to help me through this class. He has lots of wisdom in this area and I hope to have him do a guest post with any question you may have. I’ll let you know when to start asking. 🙂
Stay tuned for frequent updates throughout the year.
Have a blessed school year!
