Today was exhausting. I felt like I ran a marathon. I taught all day, tutored after school, ran 5 miles, met up with Max for dinner at Roast and now I am, finally, sitting down and relaxing for a bit.
School was pretty great. I set up 7 stations for the students to rotate through. These stations had context problems to help the students apply new information, a few review problems on old information, and two mini quizzes to formatively assess the students on a variety of information. One of my students even thanked me for the fun activity. It was pretty great. I wouldn't want to do this too much, but this was a nice way to get students up and moving around. Plus, it allowed me to work with a bunch of students on problems that were more of a struggle.
After tutoring and my run, it was great to see Max for dinner and I had an awesome sandwich. Now, I am chilling, watching Grey's Anatomy, waiting for a cake to get out of the oven, and getting ready to sleep! Tomorrow is a test day, so I am excited to relax a little and get caught up on some grading. And then...SPRING BREAK...well, after Friday, but still, I'm so close!
I have yet another pie to share today. This one was a huge hit and all the kids were asking for the recipe. Well, here you go! Cookies and Cream Pie. It's a no-bake pie that requires FOUR ingredients. Yep, thats all.
Cookies and Cream Pie
1 oreo pie crust
8 oz cream cheese
2 cups cool whip
1/3 cup sugar
8-10 oreos, crushed
1. Beat cream cheese and cool whip until well combined. Beat in sugar until creamy. Stir in cookie crumbs. Pour into pie crust and let chill for at least 2 hours.
