Warm Cookies, On a Cold Winter Day

Is there anything better?

We've been cooking in kindergarten. Today is cookie day. Our AM and PM kindergarten classes will be making chocolate chip cookies.

We spent the morning browsing through cook books, looking to see how the authors use pictures, words, and numbers. Several kids noticed that the directions were numbered in a few of the books. We talked about how this is a sequence of events.

Our new cereal-box-writing-books are a hit! We need a few more empty cereal boxes, if you are able to send some to school. Today we wrote about something we love to cook, or have cooked for us at home.

I hope you'll continue to cook and bake with your kids at home. It's wonderful to build their background knowledge through hands-on practice!

Happy baking!
