Earth science

Today we learned about the earth layers.
I first taught my students a rap which was very entertaining!
Then the students made an earth made out of a chocolate whopper, frosting, rice crispy, and hard shell chocolate syrup.
They had a lot of fun and knew all four layers by the end of the lesson!
Inner core, Outer core, Mantle, and crust!

I love teaching Math!!!


Today I had a lot of fun teaching math.
Well to be honest I love teaching math everyday!
Today I was teaching my students how to create a bar graph and then ask and answer questions about their graph.
To make it fun I gave each student a bag of skittles.
They first came up with questions they wanted to know about their bag of skittles on a post it.
They then made a bar graph using the skittles.
Once they finished their graphing they answered the questions they created.
They had a lot of fun!
Of course it helped that at the end they were allowed to eat their candy!
Does anyone else like teaching math?
I would always like some more ideas on more exciting ways to teach math concepts!

Thanksgiving 2011

This thanksgiving we celebrated at our house with my mom, Charlie, Stephanie, and Filippo Jr.
We cooked a corn casserole, Mashed potato, Sweet potato.
We got a precooked turkey because I did not have time to make one on my own.
All we had to do is put it in the oven for 2 hours.
Nice and easy.
My sister made a Mac and cheese and a pumpkin cheesecake.
This made me want to make my own cheesecake from scratch.
If you have any recipe please pass along.
Charlie made Sweet yams, Stuffing, and a broccoli casserole.
It was a great lunch and dinner.
We had a great time reminiscing of our childhood!
There was great laughs!
Thanksgiving is always fun when you have good company!!!!
Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving as well!

Here are some pictures!

Wreath



So my aunt has been trying to get me to make my own wreath for a long time.
I was always scared of the challenge.
Why? I am not sure? I love making crafts!
So last weekend, I went to the Michael's and was going to buy a wreath.
Instead I decided on the spot that I would make my own!
Since LSU has been doing amazing this season I decided to make a purple and gold wreath.
It was a lot of fun!
I super glued everything on to a wreath.
Hector helped me making the ribbon. It was somewhat difficult.
People on youtube made it look tooooo easy!!
Here is the end result.
Geaux Tigers!
