A few weeks back, the kids teamed up with Ms. Lacy and Ms. Eryn to whip up some community love in the form of delicious orange cranberry bread. Taking turns, they added, zested, and mixed ingredients, turning our classroom into a baking haven.
The following Monday, the young chefs tried their hands at homemade butter, sprinkling in a bit of salt and heavy cream. Each took a turn shaking the jar until the liquid became a solid.
The next day, we joined the whole school for a heartwarming Thanksgiving celebration. From the primary level to the eighth graders, everyone shared poems, prayers, and gratitude. Back in our classroom, we savored the tasty fruits of their labor – the delightful bread and butter they crafted together. Community, creativity, and a dash of buttery goodness – the perfect recipe for togetherness.
This week, the children are finishing up lessons about woodland animals and fall. Soon, we’ll dive into the holiday season and celebrations. We also celebrated a friend’s birthday with cupcakes and her favorite book, Pete The Kitty’s First Day of Preschool, by Kimberly and James Dean.
Food Tasting: This was the first time I introduced baby spinach as a food-tasting item. Even though there was not much to explore compared to other produce we had tasted, I was surprised to see all of our friends tasting it. And most of them wanted more servings.
Peace and Love,
Cynthia and Sara
