Week of April 29th

This week we made Lemon Parmesan Popcorn for our Fit Friday healthy snack.  This snack was also a hit, that’s 2 in a row! The kids loved the Ranch Dressing last week and they liked the popcorn this week.  Here are the ingredients and instructions:

Bolded ingredients will be grown and harvested in our Learning Garden in the fall

 • Plain popcorn, 15 cups

• Fresh herbs, 2-3 tablespoons

• 2 lemons, juiced

• Extra virgin olive oil, 4 tablespoons

 • Parmesan cheese, 5 tablespoons

• Salt and pepper, to taste

• Harvest fresh herbs and popcorn from your Learning Garden. • Pop popcorn and chop fresh herbs.

 • Combine lemon juice, olive oil, salt in pepper in a mason jar and shake until fully combined. • Drizzle over popcorn and toss to coat. • Garnish each serving with parmesan and fresh herbs. • Serve in a reusable cup, or on a plate, or on a napkin. • List other ways to dress-up popcorn! • Describe the popcorn flavors. Examples: bitter, sweet, sour, acidic, spicy, herbal, & earthy, etc.

We have a pretty busy last couple of months of school!  We will continue with our garden study and continue to plant in our garden.  We will also start our butterfly study soon!  We will be ending our Goldilocks study and start our Eric Carle Study next week.  We will be laser focused on Art activities and math activities.  We are still in need of paper towels! 

Please remember to put sun screen on your child before they come to school.  Flip flops are hazardous on the playground!  Please send your child in closed toed shoes.

We need families to sign up to make playdough for the month of May and June.  Please sign up to bring some in!

Have a great week,

Ms. Bethanie & Ms. Maggie
