I love teaching and learning with young children, this is where I share my ideas.
Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators. Please don't use the photos or text of this blog without permission, but please do use any ideas you find useful. Thank you for stopping by!

C is for Cookie!
There are some things we just have to do. Making cookies for the letter C is one of them! What a fun "have-to-do" it is!
We did two cookie projects this week. For the first, I spread peanut butter on graham crackers, and the children used cookies and candies to turn it into a "camera".
Another day we made cookies from scratch!
As always, we started by washing our hands. The children helped me a few at a time, but everyone had a turn to do something.
They measured and poured, cracked eggs, sifted flour, and mixed.
To make our cookies C shaped, the children rolled the dough in their hands to make a snake shape, then bent it on the cookie sheet to form the letter. It was hard to not eat them right away!
I baked them as the children got up from nap, and we had warm cookies and cold milk for snack. :-)
Like Cookie Monster says, "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me!"
