About the Author:

Kaye Hagler is an educational consultant who mentors teachers in regional and national workshops and conferences. She holds a bachelors degree in education from Georgia State University, a masters degree from Troy University, and a postgraduate endorsement in gifted education from the University of Alabama. She has taught elementary and middle school gifted education and high school English. Currently, her time is spent writing, conducting writing workshops, and serving as an adjunct instructor of English. She received the 2012 Advancement of Alabama Literacy Award for outstanding contributions to the promotion of literacy in the writing process. Kaye is the author of Take 5! For Science: 150 prompts that build writing and critical-thinking skills ; Take 5! for Language Arts: 180 bell ringers that build critical-thinking skills (Grades 3-9); Take 5! for Language Arts: Writing that builds critical-thinking skills (K-2); and Inquire, Investigate, Integrate!: Making Connections to the K-2 Science Standards and the Common Core.

Judy Elgin Jensen's love of science took root as she watched her mother prepare foods harvested on the family's farm. So it was inevitable that she became a biology teacher instead of the journalism major her mother thought she would be. In the classroom during a time of declining enrollments and more teachers than positions, she learned that textbooks were developed by ex-teachers who brought practical experience to the world of academia. Thirty-plus years of collaborating with authors and educators to create scientifically accurate materials that support teachers in their work ensued. Judy has authored and edited science texts and resources for pre-K through high school for the National Science Teachers Association, the National Science Foundation, and National Geographic Learning, among others.

Review:

Take 5! for Science integrates science and writing in the elementary grade levels. . . .The authors have provided an introduction which outlines how to get started using the prompts in the classroom. They have included a sample rubric and suggestions for assessments. Each science topic includes two prompts, a science teacher background page, and alignment with Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core, suggested activities based on science and engineering practices, materials needed, and assessment ideas. -- Ruth Ruud --NSTA Recommends

I found this book to be a wonderful resource that would provide everything needed to easily teach a science concept and integrate writing and critical thinking into the lesson in a way that would be exciting to elementary students. Index.
-- Terri Lent, NBCT School Librarian, Patrick Henry High School, Ashland, Virginia. RECOMMENDED. --School Library Journal

A highly recommended curriculum supplement for incorporating unique science prompts to help transform five minutes of class time into engaging writing opportunities. . . .Thoroughly 'user friendly' in composition, organization, and presentation. --Midwest Book Review, The Education Shelf
