Science notebooks are great. I feel like the format of the Science notebook changes depending on what you are doing in the class, but I always have them put their name and date in the right hand corner and add a title. I will model how I would like the notebook to look on that day on the board. This usually includes things like charts and sentence starters.

There is so many great Science pins on pintrest! There are so many simple experiments that you can use in your classroom. I have used a few with my daughter who is in kindergarten and she LOVED THEM! Kids in general just love hands on activities and there are so many to find on pintrest!

I have the same fear. I will be graduating this spring of 2016. I know somebody that has a child that has a first year teacher this year. She told me that she was very excited about this because she knows that the teacher will be filled with excitement instead of feeling burned out. Her mindset really helped me ease my fears!
