Disclaimer: It's been awhile, I know. Just haven't felt much like blogging until today. I just have to share this funny story with you...
Currently, in my class, we are writing "how to" papers and many of my students are baking something as their examples. Well, one of my students is making brownies and the recipe yields 12 and we have 24 students in that class. He was worried about having enough for everyone, so I told him to double the recipe.
Teacher: "So, you will just double everything. Instead of 2 cups of flour, it will be 4 cups....."
5 minutes later....
Student: "Mrs. Fast, since I am doubling everything, will I need to double the temperature too? To 650 degrees?"
Teacher: Laughing hysterically, "No, sweetheart, the oven doesn't even go up that high. Just double the ingredients and put them into two pans."
It's moments like this that make teaching SO much fun! I suppose it is a logical question. Gotta love 6th graders! :)
