Ms. Erica will be blogging weekly & I will be doing a monthly recap so you can see what we are doing here at !mpact.
At the beginning of October we made some tacos. We made our own chips & guacamole, as well! We had the option of having nachos, a burrito, or a taco. Ms. Erica and I didn't even have to show the kids a guacamole recipe, so many of our students had a special way of making guacamole we came up with a combination. It was delicious!
We also played a game called Werewolves. This is a popular game with our middle schoolers. We went into the library and turned off the lights so we could set the scene. We sat in a circle and we had two narrators, Zoe and Alison. Zoe and Alison were the ones that ran the game. There are different roles in the game that you could be. Werewolves is basically a role-playing game and is very interactive!
We had a spa day but I only captured Derartu! We had other girls doing hair & getting their nails done as well!
Later that week we also had a perler bead day! We looked up different perler bead projects for inspiration. Check out the dog Sammi was helping Victor finish! Now that's a lot of perler beads!
The next week we made some monster slime as well as learning some new card games! Check out the goo all over Ms. Erica's hands!
We did a cooking challenge this past month and the first day we got together to figure out our teams and what type of Grilled Cheese the teams wanted to make. The teams typed up their shopping list and I bought the materials the next day. Then we got back together again to actually make the sandwiches. Congratulations to Neha's team who put together a mac n' cheese grilled cheese along with a tomato soup bread bowl! So fancy!
Last month you may have seen that we did some wood burning. We did wood burning again in November but this time we advanced to wooden spoons. As you can see we used pencils to make our designs & draft up our spoons then we used our wood burning pens to decorate! This activity was a hit and I plan to do more wood burning in the future!
Ms. Erica posted before that we made mini pizzas, below are more photos!
Thanks for stopping by! Come back next week & again at the end of the month to see what else we're doing at !mpact!!
