So hey there! Linking up with Doodlebugs for 5 for Friday ! It has been a fun week! This is our last full week of school and I'm excited and sad all at the same time. Check out what was happening in my room this week!
I shared in another post this week that we went to a local college of technology as part of the 8th grade field trip for our entire school. I was nervous about the trip but found out that my students rocked it and there really was nothing to worry about. Yes, that is one of my students actually working a bulldozer! Awesome!
If someone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it, I cannot figure out for the life of me how to take pictures that are oriented correctly to change. It is so frustrating! I love being able to say that I can do a lot of things on my own but, this is not one of them! So, feel free to comment or send me an email with help!
Anyways, this is a curriculum called Cooking 2 Learn. It is a very visual based cooking curriculum and I love it. My district had purchased it through a grant from a local autism foundation. It is awesome in that is has the recipe in multiple differentiated forms depending on your students reading abilities and it also has comprehension questions at the end for students to complete. No one can say that my students are just doing silly cooking anymore, there is so much educational and functional purpose to it it is insane!
WRONG!!! A student put this up on the board today and I thought I read it wrong. She counted the weekends too. We actually have 7 days of school left. Not a full week left for this teacher in this school year. Like I said before I am excited for summer to be able to spend everyday with my daughter, but I think I will be ready to come back by early August. I'll be bored and itching to work on things in my classroom. I'm a weirdo like that. Most teachers are dying that they have to come back but, I think I just really truly love my job and the students I work with.
Well, I realized that since I started this blog I have started to neglect my TPT store. I have a huge list of products that I can think of that I either use in my room already or things that I'd like to use next year that would make excellent products to share on TPT. So, since I was slacking I went in my files from the year and thought to myself is there something in here that I could give as a freebie?? Sure enough there it was, a visual recipe that I used during Valentine's day. We made cupcakes and decorated them as our cooking activity the week of Valentine's day. So here you go, a visual recipe of how to make cupcakes to use with your students. Check it out here....
HAPPY FRIDAY & Enjoy the Freebie! :)
