T-minus 4 days until the wedding!
As for Teaching Tip Tuesday, I’ve found an ultimate lesson all about weddings!
I think many girls at one time in their life or another has wished that they could plan weddings for a living. I know I would totally love it, although, after watching shows like “Say Yes to the Dress” and “Bridezillas” I’m not sure I could deal with the freak-outs of the over-the-top brides!
With the invention of Pinterest, the Knot, and other wedding planning sites, ideas for weddings are endless.
Being an FCS teacher, I get the opportunity to integrate core academic subjects into my class in fun ways. As I was doing some research for my classes, I came upon this amazing lesson plan for planning a wedding. It not only integrates social skills, but money management and budgeting, consumerism, and compromise. The creator, Linda M. Rhinehart Neas, did a great job at writing a fun, engaging, useful lesson plan. This is honestly one of the most interesting lesson plans I have ever read!
Now, more than ever, I’m hoping that I can find an FCS teaching job in California so I can teach this fun lesson to a bunch of students!
