Breakfast Lab

I've been busy and haven't update yet! Last week, on the 19th, the Foods classes got to make a lot of yummy breakfast food. My room smelled really good! They made stuffed french toast, crepes, german pancakes, and waffles. They did a great job, and there were definitely some learning experiences for the students! Here are some pictures...

This is the syrup the classes made. In one of my classes, they didn't follow directions on the milk, so they put regular milk instead of evaporated milk. You can see that it is a lot more runny, and not mixed as well as the one below.

The spread of goodness.
(German Pancakes not pictured)

And some cheese-ers from the students.
They really enjoyed the food and had a lot of fun!

Room Designs!

This last week in FACS Exploration, the students have been working on the Room Designs. They were to take a shoe box and design a room using the Principles and Elements of Design that we talked about in class. Some of the projects I received were amazing! So detailed and very creative! I wish I could post all the pictures...because seriously, they are so cool!

This girl put so much work into hers! The floors are perfectly pieced together and the furniture is just outstanding.

The detail in this room is awesome! I love the pool balls.

This is such a fun room and so much detail.

Seriously, most of my students went above and beyond the expectation! I am so proud of them!

Cookie Lab

Today the Foods classes made cookies! My room smelled awesome! They had a lot of fun, and really enjoyed the sweet treats. Here are just a few pictures.

(Sorry...don't know why the picture is sideways.)
These are the sugar cookies. They even made me one just for me. They were good!

(Again..the picture is sideways)
These were the snickerdoodles. These girls did a really good job on their cookies and in their lab.

I wasn't able to snap a picture of it, but there was a group that didn't put enough flour in their product at first, so their cookies turned into a flat, gooey mess. It was definitely a learning experience for these students!

Hope you have a good weekend!

Cookie Color Wheels

Today in FACS Exploration, we made cookie color wheels. The students used frosting and food coloring to make the different colors on the color wheel. It was a fun activity for them to do and
something yummy for them to eat! Here are some pictures! (Sorry they are kinda yellow...some of my settings on my camera were funky...)

These girls had the brightest and coolest colors on their wheel so I wanted to snap a picture of them with their work of art!

Also, Mrs. Barnum had her baby! He was born yesterday (Sept. 5) and weighed 9 lbs. 7 oz. and was 21 inches long! Both Mom and Baby are doing great. I (Miss Langston, her student teacher) will be teaching the class and can't wait to work more with the students!
Here is the handsome Benjamin!

Congrats Mrs. Barnum!
