This week we have been studying prepositions. I have this thing that I do when I fall asleep… I decide what I want to think about and focus on that one thing and somewhere between being awake and dreaming I can usually come up with an idea for that topic. So last night was prepositions. I had forgotten to search for it on Pinterest so I needed a cute idea besides the BBBBBBBBBBOOOORRRRRIIIIINNNGGGG workbook page. blah. So Preppy Polly was born… I forgot to take a picture of her at school, but the story was that Preppy Polly loved to shop, so she went to the mall and she put her sunglasses….WHAT? Where did they go? uh oh where did they go? The students had to fill in where she left then hence using a preposition. To model I got my sunglasses out and asked the kids possible places I could leave them..under the table, in my purse, and my favorite…on my head! Here is the sheet we used and the kids got to draw their own Preppy Polly. My border is from SugarHillCo.com. Click to download PDF.
Okay now on to the good non teaching stuff! I made these pinterest inspired strawberry and cream muffins and they were AMAZING!yum. Click on the link to find the real recipe.
Then I whipped up the cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract:
Then the directions wanted me to whisk the dry ingredients and make a well? What the crap is a well? haha this is what I came up with maybe someone who cooks can tell me if I am right or wrong:
then I poured my wet ingredients in the well and mixed well. I filled the cupcake pans half way then added some strawberries and then a scoop of cream and then some more strawberries then topped it off with some raw sugar.
Let me know if you try this and how they turn out!
