Sometimes I write a list of the lesson that were given so that you can get a glimpse into what’s been going on. Each child has not received each of these lessons, nor have I listed them all.

This week we were gifted with the most gorgeous, fresh tomatoes from Sophia’s family garden, so we made salsa. It was very well received and I was actually a bit surprised.
We made beet dip. We talked a lot about beets being maligned due to their unattractive exterior. We noticed all the bad stuff about them. “They’re hairy.” “They smell like dirt.” “They look like fat carrots.”
Be assured that I have no need for every child to be able to cook, although that is the main place to start for a healthy adult lifestyle, but all the skills brought about by cooking are related and support more academic work such as holding a pencil (the strength to squeeze a lemon), prioritizing, time management, safety with sharp tools etc.
We have been experiencing a language and movement explosion in the classroom!
I’ve planned a different healthy dip to make each day. All will be encouraged to try the dip and to share their impressions. I’ll share the recipes as we taste them.
If your child has had a classroom change for the new school year, be sure to make the edit on the hot lunch website.
