Measuring, pouring, mixing and baking were all included in this "Best Cookie Ever" as described on Pinterest. With only three ingredients, it made for an excellent example of how easy it can be to make a batch of cookies. After mixing and rolling the cookies in small balls, they were placed in the oven for about 6-8 minutes. From the general reviews of the cookie, it was a thumbs up!This recipe calls for: 1 cup of nutella, 1 cup of flour, and 1 egg per batch. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Now how simple is that?

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.1.6 With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. All of them completed this project on their own each day during Writer's Workshop. They typed their stories, added clip art, and drew their own pictures digitally. By incorporating technology into our daily lessons, we are not only meeting the standard but we are making lessons interesting, challenging, and fun for the class.

After a few weeks off, getting back into the swing of school takes a little time. However, when there is a sweet treat involved, it always spices up the school day and makes for an especially fun Writer's Workshop. Today, the children watched as a big box of cherry candy canes was opened. We talked through each step: opening the box, snipping off the end of the wrapping, carefully peeling back the plastic and then enjoying eating it. They listed the items needed for this activity on the bottom of the sheet and included pictures and captions. When they were finished writing, they followed their own directions and enjoyed eating their candy cane. What a great way to get back into writing!!
