Favorite Recipe Day

My Foods classes had their favorite recipe lab day. Most of the classes made calzones or fettuccine alfredo. My room got hot, but it sure smelled nice. This group made a massive calzone. They gave me a sample... it was yummy!

The FACS classes have started learning about interior design, starting with the color wheel. Each student made a color wheel with nilla wafers, frosting and food coloring. Most of the color wheels turned out fairly well! Good job guys!

Apple Crisp and Homemade Ice Cream

The Foods classes today made Apple Crisp and Homemade Ice Cream. The ice cream is a lot of work (shake, shake, shake) so most of the groups ended up drinking theirs, but they said it still tasted good. Several groups gave me samples of their apple crisp (I think I ate about a batch all by myself) and I can say... it was good!!

Color Coding

In Fashion on Friday, the student color coded themselves. It was fun to see and hear the different opinions about certain colors on each of the girls. They did a great job.


In FACS I had students draw a picture of an imaginary creature. Then they had to partner up and describe their creature to their partner so their partner could try to draw the origional creature. Here is an example of what was turned out. This partnership did a really good job- their pictures turned out fairly close.
The objective was to consider that children learn differently than adults, so sometimes we need to adjust our language into terms that children will understand.
