These last weeks, we learned all about cooking.
Launching our unit, we started with cheese and held a very formal tasting.
Some were a little suspicious.
But, all were interested.
Popular cheeses included the triple cream brie, cheddar, and Swiss.
But, most did not care for the Humboldt Fog goat cheese.
Using our various cheeses (with the exception of the Humboldt Fog which was unanimously axed), we also got started on a big dish of mac & cheese.
and we stirred...
While it was baking, we also watched a video of how some cheeses are made.
And made a little macaroni art.
Finally, it was done by lunch time! We all agreed it was the best macaroni & cheese in the history of macaroni & cheese.
Throughout our week, we also celebrated Splash Day...
and Library Day.
Another cooking opportunity we had was Stone Soup day. We read the book and then we made a KinderPrep version of Stone Soup (AKA lentil soup).
We also got a little creative with our own recipes.
But, we couldn't just have soup. We needed a salad, too. But, not just any salad.
KinderPrep Garden Salad!
Soup and salad for lunch on this day!
On Friday, the 28th, we celebrated Miss Michelle's last day as we prepared to say goodbye to her. This was incredibly difficult to do, but we're so happy for Miss Michelle.
We couldn't just send her off in any old way, however.
We needed to send her off KinderPrep Style.
Spending an epic day at the beach!
Then, going to lunch at Pizza Port!
