I want to give a HUGE shout out to Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Cox’s second grade classes at Waterbridge Elementary! I had a GREAT time coming to talk to you about my job for “Teach-In” today. You all were so enthusiastic! You were fantastic listeners and you came up with fabulous, thoughtful questions. You even gave me a new name…(they decided that if Chef David’s nickname was “DR Chocolate”, then I must be Mrs. Chocolate:-)
For everyone that wasn’t there, these students were super special second graders (did you like my alliteration). We talked about how I use some of the same skills, in my daily routine, that they are learning right now. For instance, to write my blog, I need to use correct spelling, grammer and punctuation. I use math when I sell the chocolate. We determined how much one 6-piece box of chocolate costs, and how much a 12-piece box costs and then we made number sentences showing how much 2 boxes would cost. We tied into science, and the different states of matter a little when we discussed how molten chocolate changes into solid chocolate and we even did a little Social Studies when we looked at the map and found Florida then found Chile (where Chef David’s family is from).
As much fun as that was, I think that everyone’s favorite part was when we looked at the pictures from my website’s Centerpiece Gallery. They especially liked the Yellow M&M, the Halloween Pumpkin and the Green Bay Packers Centerpiece.
Thank you very much for inviting me to your class, you made my morning very “Sweet”!!
