This week in World Cultures students enjoyed empanadas, an authentic dish from Guatemala. Students will try dishes from around the world prepared by their classmates as they learn about different cultures throughout the semester. Mrs. Brockman will put all their recipes together into a book that each student will get a copy of at the end of the semester. Yum!
This week US History I students had the opportunity to get in touch with the past as they examined artifacts from the Revolutionary War courtesy of The American Revolution Institute. They had a great time looking at and trying on some of the items!
5 tips to make brushing and flossing fun!
Let kids pick out their favorite soft bristle toothbrush. Popular toothbrush companies make brushes with medium and firm bristles, so read carefully to avoid those!
Toothpaste comes in many fun colors and flavors. Check the ingredient list for fluoride, hydroxyapatite or both to ensure it's designed to harden tooth enamel.
Using a toothbrush timer ensures they brush for 2 full minutes, plus timers come in many shapes, sizes, colors and some even have a suction cup on them.
Floss picks come in a variety of colors, sizes, disposable, reusable, silicone, plastic and biodegradable. Kids love being independent so floss picks are the easy answer.
There are many great books, videos and songs that make learning about teeth, toothbrushing, flossing and getting their teeth cleaned by a dental hygienist fun. Check online or your local library.

The 6th graders have worked hard the last few weeks on their chapter projects.
Some chose to design a garden where they needed to choose the types of vegetables and herbs to be planted. They needed to research how much space each plant needed for optimal growth.
Others chose to create a board game where they needed to include operations with decimals, multiplying fractions, or dividing fractions. They needed to design the game and game pieces, as well as, write instructions for the game.
Lastly, few chose to plan a menu for a school fundraiser. They needed to choose three items to serve at the event, find the recipe, and plan to make enough food for 150 people. They needed to put together a menu page, a shopping list for the ingredients, and calculate the total cost of the food.
