    Flooding and Outlining is more Difficult than it Seems!

    For this week I choose to do my learning off of TikTok. I spend so much time on TikTok I thought it would be a good idea to use it for something useful. Below are two of the videos that I used that helped me along in outlining my cookies. After scrolling through TikTok I found South Street Cookies, her videos seemed to be very education and I felt that they gave me an idea on how to approach the idea of flooding and outlining a cookie. When I started this I thought that this was not going to be as hard as it turned out to be. @southstreetcookies Have…

    Making The Icing

    Before I started to decorate cookies I thought that hardest thing about this process was the going to be decorating the cookies and not making the icing, but, I was wrong. Making the icing posed many challenges, getting the royal icing to become the right consistency was very hard for me. The recipe that I used for the Royal Icing was Sally’s Favourite Royal Icing. I found that this recipe was very good at giving good instructions and step by step to follow. To make this icing I went to Micheals and picked up a few supplies that I needed. The first thing that I was required to pick up…

    Technology and Me

    When posed with the question ‘how does technology affect your everyday life,’ it made stop, look at my life and reflect on all of the ways technology is used within my every day. Each Sunday on my phone I get a little notification that pops up giving me my weekly screen time and I am able to go look at what apps I am using the most. When looking at it, it really was not a surprise to me, most of the hours spent on my phone were scrolling TikTok, answering Snapchats or looking through Facebook. None of these apps are really educational, although you can learn some pretty neat…

    Canva in the Classroom

    Although I have heard of Canva I have never really explored or played around with it. Canva is an app that provides templates for absolutely anything you can think of and are fully customizable.

Buying the pro version allows me to access many things and add more customization. Canva has the options of Canva Teams, this allows people to work together upgrading their experience using Canva. Canva for Teachers¬† Canva for teachers can be…

    While choosing a learning project I had many ideas that I was interested in exploring. The one that I decided I wanted to take the time to learn was decorating sugar cookies. I enjoy baking but I have never been able to do more than spread icing onto cookies with a butter knife. I have created a list of things that I need to complete if I want to accomplish my overall goal of wanting to decorate a sugar cookie nicely; I need to begin by baking the sugar cookies, an easy-to-follow sugar cookie recipe is the way I will be doing that! I will need to cut the cookies…

    My Experience Using Educational Technology

    I grew up in a very small town. Growing up in such a small town and attending such a small school we did not have access to a very wide range of technology. We used smart boards and had laptops that we were able to use. ¬†Having access to such minimal technology I now have a great interest in many different types of technology within the classroom, and how to use them. As a future teacher I Believe that technology will play an important role within my classroom and I am eager and excited to learn more about technology! Blogging is something that is very new to me! When we…
