1M went back to the Kitchen

As an extension to learning about Story Elements, 1M was back in the teaching kitchen making Gingerbread cookies.
The students had great discussion on dry and wet ingredients, and used terms like mix, fold, knead, roll out. In class, they have been reading a variety of books on Gingerbread characters, understanding the story settings, identifying the problem (kick-off) and solution (tie-up) in each book. This was one time “playing with your food” was absolutely acceptable!!!
