First and second grade also spent the afternoon baking. Second grade read the story, Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco. Students learned about sequencing of events and learned the importance of order when baking. The little girl made Thunder Cake with her grandmother to distract her from the storm. On Friday, we made Thunder Cake Cupcakes using the recipe from our textbook. They were very interesting chocolate cupcakes....the secret ingredient is tomatoes. We had a blast making them.
Thank you Mrs. Price, Miss Christina, Mrs. D'Andrea, and Mrs. Magnuson for volunteering to help with baking and our auction projects. Thank you to Mr. Smythe for helping build the second grade project for us to paint.
