School’s been in session for three months. Really? I’ve been in a whirlwind of what? Where have the days gone? Am I the only one that’s wondering what’s happening to time? Let’s slow time down. Do you agree? I want to enjoy, just soak it all in, live each second before it slips away. I don’t want to miss a thing! What about you?
We are in the middle of our quick bread unit. I’m so happy with what my students have done so far! They are doing a fabulous job in the lab! I will say this, adding a stop watch to my Promethean board has been the best motivator! Students have to be seated at their tables by a certain time in order to make an A . It really has helped them to focus and use their time wisely. You know I should do the same thing in my kitchen!!!
The pancake lab really needed very little improvement. It was a great day in the kitchen.
At home I gave Martha’s best ever pancakes a try and they are easy and very worth making! It’s just a basic recipe that everyone can use anytime. Enjoy some pancakes with your family this fall and make some great memories!
