Persuasive presentations were this week. They were fun!

Cricket Flour Cupcakes

Cricket Potstickers and Cricket Bars

Kids made up products containing crickets or cricket flour because, as it turns out, they are actually healthy and delicious! They were graded with a rubric that they got to practice with ahead of time. It was clear that some students put a lot of effort into their projects. Ask your child how they scored. 
Whole crickets!
Chocolate Cricket Flour Cookies

Cricket Flour Cookies. REALLY!

For the next couple of weeks, students will be writing persuasive essays. First they will write about cricket flour; 
next they will choose a topic of their own. 
Be prepared to be persuaded by them in the near future.


Famous Person

My famous person was born on May,2,1972. He is an actor and a wrestler {that was a big hint} He was born in Hayward, CA. His initials are DJ. He was in the movies The Rundown, The Game Plan, Get Smart,The Other Guys, Faster, The Fast and the Furious {another big hint}.His father was known as “The rocky johnson” and his grandfather on his mother’s side was a football player playing for the Miami hurricane football team in the year 1991. Later in his career he met and married Dany Johnson {garcia} and had a daughter. In 2008 the couple got divorced.

Question of the Week

I asked my sister Katlyn, “What is your favorite thing about high school?” Her response was that she loves most of the teachers. Her favorite teacher is Mr. Napp. he runs the FFA program and Parly Pro. Parly Pro is a debate team. She is the chairman most of the time which means she gets to boss people around and she is very good at that. The FFA program is the best class she has ever taken. This year she decided that after taking math for two years she had enough credits to do something else. She is now talking floral culture and usually brings home a different bouquet of flowers every other day.

Two Truths and a Lie

  1. When I was born I was super ill and my grandma had to pay $10,000 so I could live. They would not let me out of the doctor’s, so my dad went and put grow lights over me. He grew me like a plant until I was three. I had three sisters. I am the youngest but the tallest out of them.
  2. When I was five I got to go to Disneyland. My aunt worked there, so we got a discount. I got to go on the California rollercoaster. My sister thought she was driving me, my mom, dad and two sisters, but at the end of the ride she found out that she was not really driving.  We went to see the fireworks and tinkerbell. After that we back to my aunt's house.
  3. Last New Year’s, my cousin passed away in the house. I found out and I was super sad. My dad came and got me and we got in a car crash on highway 20. I broke my arm.
