Students Session 2:
Grades K-3
Celebrate Thanksgiving – Make a Cornbread Mix
It’s time for Thanksgiving, let’s learn to make cornbread. Reading a recipe and practicing measuring skills will be sharpened just in time for Thanksgiving.

Students will mix the dry ingredients of cornbread in a take home bag, including the recipe to make at home later. Plus, this time of year is about sharing – students will take one bag home to share with a special neighbor or friend. One to eat…one to share.

Grades 4-8
Mrs. Frost, Mr. Oleson and Mrs. Flynn are coming to have fun with our 4th-8th grade students! Students will be creating their own word art picture to describe themselves and their interests! Students will then get to know a bit more about themselves as we will provide them with a learning style inventory so they can figure out which of the ways they seem to learn best. We’ll talk about these and provide some follow through information for them to share with each other and at home!

Time: 9:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
