FCS Teacher Sharing Time – What’s working in your classroom?
Our FCS teachers share the best practices, tips, questions, and stories!
Love it when students allow FCS teachers to bring items for “show and tell”. Example of plarn (plastic yarn created from plastic grocery store bags) and crochet bag.
Textile class is over lunch (the long period) – the students prepped plyarn (yarn made out of plastic grocery bags). Some students already have experience with crochet. This is a good topic as an introduction to the FCCLA repurpose and design.
Take Charge Today, Financial Education for a Better Future, The University of Arizona https://takechargetoday.arizona.edu/
Created a substitute teacher grid with eight writing prompts for Human Growth and Development. The students can work on the assignments in class. They can receive the 25 points by writing their answer to the question, one page in length.
As one way to do an assessment for Principles of Foods, using these worksheets to introduce labels – the nutrition label as well as the ingredient list. This is a good activity to let them do a taste test (a small sample) and learn the lessons before they move into projects in the lab.
A Year in Real Live – an online lesson with a packet that corresponds with a year’s worth of income and expenses. The students have a hard copy of a calendar to track where bills land in the month. The online lesson uses spin wheels to help determine different statuses for different life situations (savings, credit, apr for credit card, credit card, number of children, how the baby is born and hospital costs, different types of vacation, etc). For more information on the program, email email@example.com.
What can we do with our FCS students to benefit families in Ukraine? We had a short discussion with some possible ideas. Although there is no single answer, we have some ideas:
- Make cookies for a bake sale.
- Donate proceeds to the World Central Kitchen https://wck.org/
- Investigate charity organizations, compare the percentage of donations that go directly to people in need
- Use the FCCLA Planning Process with students
- May 2022: short promotion of the AWJH brownie bake sale
