Tried making snow globes with the students this year. Discovered the key was not to put too much snow in the globe. Unless you want a completely white snowstorm in your globe
Another year is done! And another great Halloween class filed with games and fright. Ahhhhh!!!!!
I was a bit worried that some of the younger kids would be too scared to come in to the class room but to my surprise, they were all fine with the blacked out scary dark classroom. Just a year before some of the kids wouldn’t come in unless I turned on the lights.
They all had awesome costumes this year as well. so cute!
Continuing from the previous week, we got down to gluing and screwing the top cap that would hold the jar in place. The kids had a choice of using either hot glue or screws. Most of them chose the glue. We then aligned the hole and the candy puller part?? and slapped everything together. Threw in some candy and we were ready to munch away one or two candies at a time. There were a few improvements we could make in the future to improve on the dispenser but everything worked good enough.
As me and the kids were looking around for a project to do in class, we stumbled across a simple candy dispenser design.
This is our story :
Homemade or should i say classmade ice cream!!! A super simple and fun activity for the kids to do in class. We started of by mixing milk, cream, sugar, and flavours the kids had brought from home. Poured it into a ziploc bag, put the bag in a container filled with ice and salt and got to work shaking it for about 20 min. It tasted AWESOME!!! The kids did an excellent job!!
For the last few classes we have been looking a different skyscrapers and towers around the world. For homework I gave the students 3 questions to take down and research at home.
What is tallest building in the world?
What is the second tallest building in the world?
What shape makes a building strong.
Some pics from the kids class a few weeks ago.
PIZZA PANIC!!! Love this game, so easy but so fun 🙂
The kids have a blast trying to add toppings on a very shaky pizza pie. Although by the time i snapped a few pics we had finished playing the game and the kids went on to topping a “real” pizza pizzaiolo (googled it, person who makes pizzas)
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I’m still full from constantly eating the whole weekend.
This year in the younger kids class, we made chocolate covered marshmallow reindeer.
With the older class we made stained glass cookies.
The children started off by breaking up some coloured hard candy. Then went on to shape some cookies.
Finally for the oldest kids, as requested…. PIZZA!!!! Started from scratch, four water yeast. Kneed the dough then shaped into a Christmas tree pizza. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to let the dough rise so the end result was a bit hard. I guess you could call it really really crispy?? or just hard. But it still tasted good either way.
Wish you all a happy new year!!!
Just a few pics from the kids class last week.
I wanted to get the kids to remember by heart some simple articles, prepositions and words. “the, in, and, on, they” etc. They always seem to run into problems trying to read them. I had the kids write up a few cards with words on them and played a game of slap the card with fly swatters when called out..
We also learned about body pars playing Operation. The aim of the game is to remove strange parts from inside the patient without touching the sides or else the buzzer will sound. BEEEEEEEP!!!!!!
