This collection on Forces and Motion holds many great resources for educators to use while preparing their lessons. It provides a variety of resources such as an interactive E-book, SciPack, Journal Articles, and a Book Chapter. This collection would be great when planning future elementary lesson plans. All the resources can be easily accessed by both the facilitator and his/her students. The resources seems to be very user friendly and very informative. I would definitely recommend this collection to other elementary educators. I also plan on using this collection in the future when I teach this topic to my own class.

5 ELL Learning Science Review
The collection titled, “ELL’s Learning Science,” by Dr. K. Sparrow provides educators with the best strategies and techniques needed to address the needs of ELL students in the science classroom. The collection holds many great journal articles and book chapters on educational strategies, procedures, and programs available for both teachers and students. This article even shares both teachers and students’ perspectives of ELL science lessons. I believe these resources will definitely be beneficial when lesson planning for my future science classes. The need for these lessons is crucial, especially living in Miami, FL. I agree that it is important to learn how to create lessons that are geared towards our students needs so that they may feel comfortable and so that they may be provided with the necessary support needed to succeed in the classroom. As future educators, our duty as educators to learn about our students and find ways to cater towards their needs which is why this collection is so informative. I would definitely recommend this collection to other educators and people in this field.

Safety Is Elementary Collection by Dr. Kathy Sparrow. November 21, 2019. This collection provides educators with information regarding safety within their classrooms. What is great about these articles is that they apply to all classrooms, in general. Many of the resources found in this collection can help educators create classroom rules and even safety contracts. One of the most important lessons I learned from these articles is that the first lesson you should teach your students is “safety.” During their first day of class is when the teacher should introduce the classroom rules and safety regulations. In other words, safety lessons should not only be taught before conducting experiments. As teachers, it is our job to create a safe learning environment for our students. Without the enforcing safety rules and regulations, the teacher and students will be at risk of dangerous situations. Securing safety within the classroom not only reduces the chances of emergencies but most importantly, it creates a safe and healthy learning environment for the students. Students will most likely learn best in an organized and welcoming environment. Even though reviewing safety with students can help reduce accidents within the classroom, the lessons do not have to be limited to the classroom instruction/environment. For example, we can teach personal safety, safety in the environment, exercising safety, etc. We want our students to use what they learned about safety throughout their life. For more information of safety, one can read the following articles to learn more about safety procedures, safety materials/equipment, and behavior management within the classroom.
