Phase 2 of the project, we continued to do more baking and invited more experts to answers some of the children's questions from phase 1. We changed the pretend center into a bakery, where children can sell bakery goods such as cakes, cookies, breads etc. The main area is the sensory table which act as a kitchen where children can pretend making cookies and cakes with cloud dough. Children surrounded by books about baking and activities that enforce the project. For every books that we read, we did activities to support children's knowledge in the project. We talked about things we can make with apples, & apple tasting when we read Apple Farmer Annie, we decided what can we put in our version of Friendship Pie when we read Porcupine's Pie, we made cake from sponges, we made art mixing baking soda and vinegar and more. We also did scrap paper collages, magnet art, bubble painting, our own gingerbread person, string art and even dandelion bouquet.
We had a visitor from a cake decorator (Ms. Olivia) and had a wonderful time decorating (and eating) our own cake. Of course, we did a life painting of it before we ate it!
Oh.. we don't want to forget about the runaway gingerbread cowboy, we made it, put it in the oven then he ran away, we looked everywhere until we found it hiding in one of the room so we hurry ate it up!
The letters we learned...
