COOKING IN KINDERGARTEN
Kindergarten kicked off October with a pumpkin themed Cooking in the Classroom. We read a recipe for Pumpkin Patch Pudding and Mrs. Amanda helped them measure out the ingredients. Each student got a turn to measure, pour, and mix the pudding. While we waited for the pudding cups to chill we crushed up our cookie “dirt”. They really had to get those finger muscles working to break the cookies into small enough pieces. Then we added the dirt and candy pumpkins to our pudding and enjoyed tasting them. The students thought they were just getting a special snack but I loved knowing we were working on writing strategies and decoding words when we read our recipe, counting and sequencing when we made the pudding, and practicing our descriptive words when we talked about how the pudding tasted!
