I've got a full heart and a full belly. What an amazing two days we've had! You guys totally blew me away with all of the time, effort, and care you put into your Family Dinner dishes.
It was so amazing, it inspired this absolutely ridiculous paragraph below:
There was family food, there was favorite food, student-made food, and mom-made food; there were crock-pots, there were cake pans, cookie platters and cupcake stands. There were spicy meatballs and creamy dips, yummy soups and tortilla chips. There were casseroles, there were bakes, there were so, so many cupcakes; there were creme puffs and some pies, pounds of cookies, and a few Buckeyes. So much food, too much to count; we ate it all, in extreme amounts.
Ok: that was fun. ;)
But to bring it back for a minute, it was lovely and meaningful day, and I was just happy to be there with all of you sharing in the food and fellowship.

Another way delayed update! You guys have been rocking Food Lit, and the cool thing that happened this week was Food Lit "data collection." What I like so much about this assignment is the layers of the task. You must first watch or read the information, and then make sense of it through the lens of our unit's essential questions: What is Good Food? & Why is Food So Important to People?
What seemed to happen is some genuine, high-level thinking and exploration of ideas. I call that a win.
Here's what this week looked like:
A busy and fun week this week! I'm sorry for the (mega) delay in updating, but here it is. :)

Hey all! Hope it was a great break and good transition back to school. I've been slacking on this updating, and there's a lot to update on!
So this post is dedicated to the Lord of the Flies mind maps you completed before Thanksgiving Break. You were to choose a theme, and "map" 10 ideas around it. Click here for the task sheet.
Overall, you guys did a great job with this activity! Here are some of the final results!
