  1. Hi 7.12, love to read what you are looking forward to. As a mother, I hope you also learn how to clean up after yourselves!

  2. I love the wide variety of things that students want to do/learn. So much learning, so little time!

  3. The teacher is listening to students and offering choice about what they want to do. It appears to me that students are working collaboratively on "real world learning". Excellent, and well done to all!

  4. Hi everyone! What a lucky bunch you all are with Mrs James as your teacher! I particularly like the goal of making food look cool - eating is one of those things that we HAVE to do while we are alive, but why can't it be as fun as possible!?

    Keep up the good work.

    Foods classes can be fully hectic:) I know as I am a foods teacher in the USA (North Carolina). So much to learn in such a small amount of time. Be sure to share with your familes at home. It looks like you will be making many great food items. Enjoy the semester and best wishes for a productive learning adventure!

    1. Dear Mrs Estes,

      Jennifer our food tech classes to let you know are FULLY HECTIC!!! :) :P :D there is also lots of yummy and great food items to eat and share with our families. i make toast, cereal, stuffed POTATOES, and Stir Fries

      From Luis and 7.12 :)

    2. Luis, great job cooking and sharing! I love all the stuff you are making at home. I especially like to eat cinnamon toast made by placing butter on a piece of bread, sprinkling with sugar (either white or brown) and cinnamon. Broil until lightly golden. It is a real treat for my family. May you continue having fun on your learning adventure. -Mrs. Estes
