# On Monday March 14th, Ms. Sprouse¶s Pre-K class had the opportunity to make loaves of bread. Ms. Sprouse, Ms.

Milham, and Miss Borkey each led a group of students in making the bread. Each group was able to follow the instruction cards and measure out all of the ingredients on their own and mixed them together into the bags After all of the . ingredients were mixed, the students took turns kneading and mixing the dough. The class watched the three loaves rise over the course of the morning. The bread loaves baked in the oven during lunch time and we enjoyed fresh bread for an afternoon snack.

Comment [E1]: Comma Comment [E2]: You use Ms. In the first two names, and miss for the last name. You aren t that special. Comment [E3]: Reword. Awkward. Suggestion: Each group capably followed the instruction cards, measured out the ingredients and mixed them together all on their own. I don t think commenting on the bags is necessary. Comment [E4]: We know they were mixed. Restate: Then the students took turns kneading the dough.

The learning objectives of this lesson involved observing the students to determine if they could recognize the different cup sizes, using fine motor skills and following the instruction cards with little adult assistance. The students were able to look at the different sized spoons and noticed the different amounts of ingredients being added into the bags. They demonstrated their fine motor skills while scooping out the ingredients with the measuring cups and by kneading the bread. The children referred to the instruction cards to see what order to add the ingredients and how many scoopsthey needed to add in the bag. Giving young children opportunities to cook in the classroom is very important. Besides giving the students a fun thing to do in the class, it provides them with a snack that they can make on their own. The activity allows students for the opportunity to practice mathematic skills such as measuring out ingredients and counting how many spoonfuls they pour into the mixture. Students also work on their fine motor skills while holding the spoons and scoping out the dry ingredients. Fine motor skills are also used when kneading the bread dough in the bag.

Comment [E5]: Redundant. Rephrase: The class watched the three loaves over the course of the morning. By lunch time, the fresh bread was ready for us to enjoy as an afternoon snack. Comment [E6]: The learning objective of this lesson was to observe the students to determine if they could recognize different cup sizes, use fine motor skills and follow the instruction cards with little adult assistance. Comment [E7]: The students aptly examined the different sized spoons and identified the varying amount of ingredients being poured into each bag. Comment [E8]: by Comment [E9]: delete Comment [E10]: ingredients in Comment [E11]: replace: were needed. Comment [E12]: Don t use very. If you must use an adjective, pick something better: extremely important, essential, etc.. Just important alone is fine, though. Comment [E13]: This Comment [E14]: This is getting really redundant. You ve mentioned measuring out ingredients at least 3 times now. Possibly may want to rephrase or redact. Comment [E15]: This is also redundant. Most of this was covered in the above paragraph. You simply repeated essentially the exact same content in slightly different wording.
