We had a great time the Friday before Spring Break having Cowboy Breakfast. This was a fun way to wrap up our Texas unit, ya’ll. Haha! The kids dressed up. Me…not so much. I am not really a boot skootin kinda girl. That is more my sister’s style. J They were so cute! I LOVE themed day and I really think it is an effective part of learning. After we finished our morning journals, we worked on a Texas symbols page. I wish I had taken a picture of it. Dang!
Then, we made breakfast. Each student cracked one egg. Don’t worry they washed their hands before and after this task. I whisked it all together and we scrambled some eggs. I had made biscuits that morning. I put whipping cream in a glass jar and called a table at a time to take turns shaking it…and guess what? It turned in to butter! They kids were amazed! When all the cooking was done, we ate our biscuits with our homemade butter and specially cracked eggs. I was surprised how many kids had never even held an egg before. They felt like little chefs. My favorite was “Mrs. Radke my mom is the best cook in the whole world and you cook just like her!” Ahhh..melt my heart. I told his mom later that day. She should know that she is a hero in the kitchen!!
Here are some pics of our fun adventure. It’s always an adventure…right?!!
I’ll post our latest center pics tomorrow. Stay tuned! Oh, and here is a pic of my favorite Mother Goose character. My class had a musical performance a week ago and they were to each dress like a Mother Goose character. They were ALL so cute. Isn't this just adorable? I love our music teacher. She is so great with them!
So, where you on Spring Break last week? Did you do anything special? Did you see The Lorax?
