The Food Project

PRS is fortunate to have a wonderful cafeteria and cooking staff. Chef Danny gave us an exclusive behind the scenes tour of our very own PRS kitchen.

Amy Kate, "How do you keep the milk cold?"

Chef Danny showed us the big refrigerator that was the size of a small room.

Lilly Grace, "How do you keep the food hot?"

Chef Danny showed us where they prepare the hot food and how it is transferred to warming stations.

Braylon B., "How does the food get in the boxes so it won't be dirty?"

Chef Danny showed us their working stations where they prepare the boxed lunches and showed us their special gloves. They have to wear protective gloves when the slice the deli meat to protect their hands.

Noah, "Where do you get the food?"

Chef Danny showed us the loading dock at the back of the lunch room. The food deliveries come once to twice a week and they bring the food in the back door and put it in the refrigerator, freezer, or pantry areas.

Ava, "How do you make the food?"

Gunner, "How do you know what you want to cook?"

The lunch ladies told us that they use recipes to know how to make the food and they follow a menu that Ms. Angela sets for them every month so they know what to make.

Webbing our Ideas

In the early stages of an in depth project, both Lead Learners and Learners must come together to brainstorm the main possibilities for the area of study. Here is our early web for our food project. Right now the children are mainly focused on the cooking bubble, but this will give you an idea of the number of different directions that our work may lead us. Please let Mrs. Cobb know if you would like to volunteer to be a part of this project through visiting the classroom to cook with us, sharing a favorite recipe, reading to us, or sharing any other expertise you may have on this topic. We will be looking for experts to help us answer our questions as we move along. This may include doctors, nutritionists, grocery store owners, workers, farmers, restaurant owners, or master gardeners. We value your participation and the participation of our Pike Road community!

The 100 Day

We will celebrate our 100th day of school on Friday, January 29, 2016.

We have planned a fun day where the children will experience the number "100" through many different activities. To help us visualize what 100 objects look like, we are asking that each child decorate a plain t-shirt with 100 items on it. Due to the cold weather conditions we ask that all children wear a long sleeved shirt under their t-shirt so they are more comfortable. Some ideas to use as decorations are stickers, googly eyes, fabric paint, cotton balls, buttons, pom-poms, safety pins, stamps, etc. The lighter weight the item, the easier it is to glue, stick, or attach 100 things to the shirt. Fabric paint is an excellent decoration because it is lightweight and doesn’t fall off. Have fun creating any shirt that you would like with 100 items on it. Please have your child wear their shirt on Friday, January 29th as we celebrate the 100th day of school!

Skills to Practice

* Read together every night

* Practice sight words

* Discuss environmental print (store signs, cereal boxes, flyers in the mail)

* Count using one-to-one correspondence

* Count to 100 by ones, twos, fives and tens

* Find shapes in every day life (the paper towel roll is a cylinder, the basketball is a sphere.)

* Wonder together, start conversations with, "I wonder why...." "What do you think would happen if...." Do no worry about your child having the right answer, but listen to hear the reasons and thinking behind his or her ideas.
