We had a blast! Everything from the costumes to the food, we had Halloween FUN! Here are some pictures of us partying down. :) Hope you enjoy! We did!
The students went shopping yesterday for ingredients to make spooky treats for our upcoming Halloween party. Many students have been asking us about the party and we're all excited! Mrs. Wire, now blissfully retired is coming by tomorrow to show us how to make severed monster finger cookies! Ms. Roskos is making Oreo eyeball cookies! Ooooooo! We are guaranteed a good time!
New artists have made it down to the coffee shop this week. We've had visitors from Mrs. Lowe's room come down and paint. They've created several masterpieces already!
Along with new artists, we've had new customers visiting for coffee. Parents, substitute teachers, and guest speakers have stopped by to sample our products. We always love seeing new faces.
The students and I are preparing for our upcoming $5.00 lunch on Friday. In honor of Native American Day, we have decided to make Indian Tacos. As I have NEVER made them, we have invited Security Steve's wife, Rebecca to come and assist us. She has a special family recipe, so the word has spread like wildfire! I hope we have enough!
In math, we estimated the price of our Indian Taco shopping list, which was difficult because it's not stuff we usually buy. After shopping, we figured out our potential profit. It's fun to make money!
The students were notified today that we will be having a surprise secret health inspector. They will be rated on cleanliness in 4 areas; self, workspace, hands, and environment. This will be a challenging experience, but a great learning moment, too.
Today, we are coming back from a 5-day weekend: SNOW days! Rapid City was hit with a 100-year storm. If you'd like to read the local news article, here's a link to a good story: http://rapidcityjournal.com/news/worst-october-storm-on-record-wreaks-havoc-on-the-black/article_6ac05cb5-65a9-5c07-bdac-a742b3a7a164.html
Our students are pretty excited to be back at school today. Many of my students are telling me they were without power over the weekend, and it was kind of scary and a little fun.
Our school was used as an emergency shelter with the Red Cross.
This morning we are all down in the coffee shop and it's business as usual.
We are going to do a unit on measurement... We're going to see how much snow everyone got!
I'm very grateful that my students are safe, and they are glad we are back to our mo
I've been out sick! And now I'm behind, so I apologize for the lack of posts. Everyone seems to have the bug right now....ugh.
While I've been out, the kids have been very busy. I love coming back to work after I've been sick, because I always get great comments. "You're students are awesome!" "Great class!", are just some of the things the sub said about my students. :)
Lizzy has been busy painting like crazy with our new art supplies. She has sold several pieces already, and we have to hang about a dozen more! I have a hard time keeping up with her!
Business is good. The kids are getting very good at their new jobs. They've made a few mistakes, but their realizing having a job is harder than they expected.
Our flavor of the week is the famous PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte). We've had several new customers come in for it!
We're starting to plan our next $5.00 lunch: Indian Tacos, to celebrate Native American Day. We will be selling tacos and a can of soda or water for $5.00 on Oct 10th during the lunch hour. Stop by and grab a yummy homemade Indian Taco!
