Imagination Station – Caitlin Leone
This week in Imagination Station, we are learning and growing through fun and games! Students drew original pictures, which we then framed with popsicle sticks. They also spent lots of time building and creating with Legos. We spent time on the playground playing games, and even creating some new ones! The kids enjoy playing pretend, and our costume station helps expand their creativity. We look forward to designing paper UFOs and performing a little play!
Kids in the Kitchen – Diane Vavricka
First thing Monday morning we got to know one another’s name through a fun greeting of Hickety Pickety Bumble Bee. Decorating their own placement and cloth napkin came first so it was ready to set our table. We made Pizza Pinwheels by making our own pizza dough and waiting for it to rise then spreading on ample amounts of sauce and cheese. Everyone helps and learns how the dough is supposed to “rise to the occasion” and roll it up. Tuesday’s recipe was for Vanilla Cupcakes which from scratch each child had a turn either measuring out flour, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, sugar and everyone got to break an egg. We have some natural cooks in our class! Of course, it was topped off by using icing in a tube to decorate our cupcakes. I have more recipe surprises up my sleeve to make and they are excited by the clues I give them.
