Sneak Peek Sunday: January 29-February 2, 2018

So I had surgery Friday. Not as fun as it sounds I promise you. They put a metal plate in my arm. With 6 screws. After the nerve blocker wore off, it HURT. LIKE A LOT. But no worries. I'm sorta all better now. Well at least on the road to all better. 

How am I typing you ask? By using a speech to text website! I think I may use this forever. 

I'm not exactly heading back to school until Wednesday. So I did a screencast to get them started. 

I use Screencastify and the premium version is so worth it! I'll be blogging about how easy it is soon! Check out my screencast HERE.

But the kiddos will have some fun starting their advertising unit: As Seen on TV! In this unit, they will design a product, 3D Print it, and then make a commercial selling it. 
HERE is my CRLG.
This week we get to start working on our 3D designs. It's so fun!! We will be using Tinkercad-it's online and free. Super simple to use and makes for great 3D designs for a beginning class.  Can't wait to see what they have planned. 

So for the beginning of the unit activities, I've included a Nearpod and a Quizlet on Advertising Terms. I have the terms also ready to hang up in the classroom around my CRLG poster I'll be making. 

The kids will also be completing a commercial analysis. You can find this whole kit, including links to commercials on YouTube, for free by clicking HERE. The Google Doc version of the Commercial Analysis is HERE.

We'll also start with the 3 P's. 

The 3 P’s – product design, planning, and promoting. We will get with our groups and work on the 3 P’s, We will begin our strategic marketing plan. 

Product - I want you to design a product that would help other students like yourself. Brainstorm with your group. Talk about things that would be helpful either for school or outside of school. Think practically: small things that can be carried around. We will be 3D printing these things so they can"t be huge. Draw some sketches. Think color, too. 

Planning - Who will do what? It is very important to think about strategic division of labor. Who is designing? Who is the talent? Who is set designer? Who is director? Who is script writer? Are you going to have any testimonials?

Promoting - Who is your target audience (demographic)? Why is this helpful? Why would people jump on your bandwagon? What is your media channel? What makes your product better than other things out there? How will you "sell" it? What's your tagline? Watch some of the previously attached commercials for ideas. Remember to think about colors, the history, the acting

Sneak Peek Sunday: January 22-26, 2018

OMG it has been the worst week in the world. It started off fine, just like any other Louisiana January Day - Sunday highs in the upper seventies, bright clear skies; Monday was slightly cooler and windier, clouds and rain rolled in Tuesday. Then all hell broke loose. 

First we had snow. Friggin snow. In Louisiana!!!!! 

Sneak Peek Sunday: January 8-12, 2018

Keto King Cake and Cheesecake

So as I'm sure you are aware I'm doing the Keto diet. Carly had a bad checkup this summer and we had to cut out most carbs. I didn't think it would be fair if I kept eating bread and Carly didn't :/

But I am not going to let that stand in my way of Mardi Gras Season!! It is King Cake time and I'm ready to eat all the fat!!

I used Carbquik, it's a replacement for most flour and makes stuff like Bisquik but without the carbs.
It works really well. But my sister tried it and she didn't really like the flavor or texture. But if you've been without bread for six months, it's pretty tasty. 

This recipe has about 2 net carbs per serving. 
I chose to stuff my king cake with cream cheese and Pyure. Braided it, then baked it. As you can see in the finished product, it puffed up a lot while baking.
The Pyure makes great sugar replacement. And if you pulverize it in a processor it looks like powdered sugar. 

Grab this recipe HERE.

And for the Cheesecake, I was so involved in making it that I didn't take a lot of pics. Or any except for the finished product!! 

This is make with a cinnamon cake crust and lots and lots of cream cheese. It's icing with a chantilly cream and is delicious. Clocks in at about 2 net carbs per slice. 

And this recipe is HERE.

Happy Carnival Season y'all!
