Following Up

I blogged before about my science experiment and how I had a back up going on here at home. Well here is the latest:

My class salt crystals are growing beautifully.

My class sugar crystals are growing mold and not much else.

My home sugar crystals grew and crystalized in the bottoms of the cup. HA! The back up didn't even work....

This is why I am a teacher and not a scientist. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Next week we are making volcanoes so I am crossing my fingers that those go just fine!

On to other news I just ( well yesterday)  had a talk with my principal (who is wonderful BTW) about what is going on at our school next year and I haven't stopped smiling since! I will share my news once it is completely official but I AM SO EXCITED! It is wonderful to love your job like all of it! In the past I have loved parts, the teaching part and the kids part but not the rest of it! Now I have it all!


  1. I can't wait to hear about your good news!

  2. I had the exact same issue just before Spring break! One of my team teachers did the salt experiment with his class and it grew amazingly. I and our other team teacher attempted the sugar experiment and nothing happened! I want to know how to make this work, too - haha!

  3. I feel the same way about my "green thumb" and plants. One year I had to go out and get seedlings because my sprouts were such a complete flop! Love your blog. I am your newest follower. Stop by and visit me! Michele
