It has been a difficult winter to teach. We missed 9 days of school after Christmas break. Then the days we were at school were so cold the kids did not get outside recess. Which after weeks of being cooped up inside they were becoming restless and picking at each other.
I tried to think of a good lesson for them that would be fun.
Then old march rolls around and the beginning is dr. Seuss' birthday. So what did I teach? Dr. Suess to 6th graders, maybe a story , but we did the history of cake. Yep, a week of learning about cake and leaving agents and ingredients. We ended the week with a Dr. Seuss themed cupcake war.
Gathered in Crawford classroom to judge the loot

We joked and we learned.
