Lollipop Pop came home from school last week with the news that several of her classes would be having Thanksgiving parties on Wednesday.
I think she delivered the news with a bit of trepidation as I have been known to go off on tangents that include statements like, "So much wasted class time", and "Seriously...what does a movie about firefighter Dennis Quaid have to do with Spanish?"
Don't get me wrong...I live in a family that is filled to the brim with wonderful teachers and administrators and there are a plethora of awesome teachers out there. Like in anything, one bad apple can ruin the whole bunch.
Okay...back to my original thought...
Lollipop Pop told me that I would be happy with her geometry teacher.
The class could have a party if each food item brought had an accompanying page of notes explaining the item's relationship to geometry.
Fun and a bit of thought and brain power utilized...love it!
I made a Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie and cut it into wedges.
She then wrote notes regarding its area...the area actually taken to school changed each time a wedge was devoured at home.
I enjoyed watching her work it out in a fun way...not just numbers in a book.
I was happy.
