My Students

Kindergarten is an amazing time of hands-on learning, and cooking in the classroom leads to so many possible ways to integrate reading, writing, and math. I strive to provide an enriching, engaging, environment every single day for my students.

I teach two sessions of kindergarten, AM and PM.

My school is located in a small town, where the families work hard and have raised amazing kids! The kids in my class are wonderful, bright, inquisitive learners! They are constantly asking how things work, questioning the world around them, and wanting to try things on their own.

My Project

I've taught kindergarten for many years, but recently moved to a new school district. In my former district, I was able to have a small convection oven in my classroom. Every year we worked on a cooking unit. We made cookies, baked zucchini, muffins, pizza, and much more. The kids learned about a "sequence of events" and how the idea of a sequence ties into recipes. We learned to write our own sequence of events by following steps of a cooking project, which obviously incorporated math skills and measuring. The smells in the classroom also lead to the use of descriptive words in our creative writing. Providing this hands-on experience for my students will benefit them in many academic areas as well as have an experience in cooking that they may not have had before. To make this a reality, I need a small convection oven so we can actually cook in the classroom.

I envision this project being more than just a cooking "activity" in the classroom.

This is about showing kids how their math, reading, writing, and science skills are put to use in the every day setting. It's also a way to help children experience cooking, in a way they may not have experienced before. Parents are busy people and many people aren't able to spend time cooking with their kids. I plan to provide this wonderful learning opportunity for my students.
