Lots of Fun!
This week started out with Peace Day and was full of fun activities.
We had two baking experiences; we learned about balls, their shapes, sizes, colors and even properties; we turned our Kitchen into a Sports Shop; we played games in our ipads; we read amazing books...and more!
Hope you enjoy this edition of our Weekly Newsletter!
For the yeast.. (you can also buy the instant one and add 3 and a half tablespoons of that one)
4 cups of warm water
5 envelopes of yeast
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 3/4 of oil
On a small bowl first you mix the yeast with the warm water, add the sugar and you let it sit, until it rises.
On a separate and BIG bowl add the dry ingredients all together, flour, sugar and salt.
Then you add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, the eggs and oil.
Last, you add the yeast and knead the dough until its even. Cover the dough with a towel and let it rising for about an hour.
Braid away! When finished... cover the loaf with some egg on top of it so that it gets gold in the oven.
Some people also add sesame seeds or poppy seeds or both.
Bake for about 20 minute, but remember: it depends on the oven.
What do we know about balls?
We are learning about taking turns, learning to talk and listen, to use eye contact... This skills will help in school and making friends!
Here are the questions we discussed this week:
- What is your favorite ball to play with?
- What do we know about balls?
- Is this ball bigger or smaller than your?
- How many times can you bounce this balls?
The kids came up with wonderful answers.
The Mystery Box!
This week we put in a Tennis Ball and heard things such as: lemon, apple, planet, and even a doll.
Brigadeiros...small chocolate balls!!!
She brought in the dough and sprinkles and each child made his own custom made Brigadeiro. Ms. Jasury and I even did some!
It was a sticky yummy and fun recipe!
