The Week of the Young Child: Tasty Tuesday
Our school smelled so good today, as the scents of cheese, tomato sauce, and pizza dough wafted through the building! Tasty Tuesday was celebrated in unique ways within each classroom and was much appreciated by the children's taste buds. Everyone enjoyed their food experiences.
The 2's dipped their apple slices into yogurt for a unique snack.
The T/Th/F 3's used their pretend grocery store (which has been a huge hit for the past few days) to have a juice tasting.
The 5-day 3's celebrated by bringing back Taco Tuesday. They read a story called Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin, created taco art, and made tacos for their snack.
One 4's class made edible dirt cups.
One 4's class made pizza for snack using homemade pizza dough.
