This blog is coming to you live from the O'Leary Cubs Family and Consumer Sciences classroom. It will give parents and students an idea of what is going on in FACS class, post links to cool information, and be a place to comment and ask questions.

This blog will also give out information about Mrs. Hubbard's 7th Grade Prime Time. Look for Prime Time just below and to the left to see what is going on there.

What has 8th grade been doing?

Lately we have been learning about how to shop smart.  We have learned what things are important enough to you, the things are worth it to you, and the things you value. We are discovering the things we need, and the things we desire or want.  We are making a small poster that displays these things. The poster will include 5 values, 5 needs, 5 wants, a goal for 8th grade, and a goal by age 19.  This is going to help us discover more about ourselves and the differences we have with others.  If I value my friends then I think they are worth spending my money on as opposed to others who might not think that is worth it.  We are separting the things we know we need aside from the things that mearly want.  Your needs, wants, and values say who you are and make up your personality.  What things do you value? What things do you want? What things do you need?

7th grade cultures...

We are exploring culture and belonging in 7th grade FACS right now. Here is some stuff from the students:

We belong to many cultures that appreciate us for who we are and welcome us for what we bring to the group... some of the cultures we belong to are: sports, Justin Bieber fans, Idahoans, Americans, One Direction Fans, Rap fans, basketball, biped mammals,  food eaters, families, pet owners, cross country running, skiing, video gaming, smart kids, skaters, BMXers, Taylor Swift fans, & Twinkies eaters.
