Have you ever played Minecraft before? Do you even know what it is? It is a game you can play on an Xbox phone or TV. But first you might have to buy it if you want to play on an Xbox.  It is really fun. I will show you an example of a picture of what it looks like when you build a world.

Second Grade Guest Bloggers

I am honored to have second grade classes guest blogging on the Enrichment at RES website for the rest of February and March.  Students have been learning all about the blogging medium during enrichment classes and will be creating posts to share their ideas, interests and information about our class.  We have a very ambitious goal of receiving one hundred comments on our blog posts.  I hope you will look at the student work and leave a comment--having an authentic audience is great!

Science Fair Resources

The science fair is coming! On Thursday March 16th RES students in grades K-4 are invited to come and share their great science fair projects with our community.  The science fair is a great way for students and families to work together to explore and learn about topics that interest them.

Entry forms will be sent home Friday February17th and will be due back by Friday March 10th.
Open ...

Not sure where to get started?  I highly recommend starting with your interests! Is there a topic you studied in school that you would like to learn more about? Is there something you have always wondered about--maybe how it works?  Do you have a special collection you would like to share?

The RES science fair is a non judged family event...which means adult help is welcome and appreciated..AND kids can work together to create projects too!

Not sure where to get started? Here are a few resources!

I love this website. It has tons of great project ideas and even lets you answer a survey to narrow down the choices to your interests!

This site also has great examples, and includes some great videos which will support visual learners too! Although they are also a business trying to sell science materials, it includes many great free resources in the 'Experiments' section:

And one more of my favorites!

In addition, the RES school  library is full of science project ideas and resources.  Did you know you can check out additional books with a family account?  See Mrs. Redford to set this up.

And lastly, I have several science project idea books, and am happy to discuss and brainstorm ideas with kids or families....just stop by and see me, OR email me to set up some time.

Happy Experimenting, Discovering and Learning!
Have FUN!
