THE BAKERS ARE BAKING – BAKER BAKER BACK IN FULL SWING
Now repeat that line getting faster and faster each time!
Every day for me is a happy one at Makabongwe, but I’m even happier on Tuesdays when I teach MUSIC and on Fridays when I do Baker Baker with the children.
Last week, Friday 12th March, the children iced a traced Easter egg with bright pink strawberry flavoured icing sugar and then made their own patterns using mini smarties and coloured round sweets.
Every ingredient used is a lesson: language development, counting, shapes. It’s also sensory development and this lesson used 4 out of 5 senses:- smell, taste, touch and see.
In fact, all 5 had to be used, because the children had to listen to the instructions so they could create their own Easter eggs.
There was much licking of fingers and eager anticipating for “after lunch” when they could devour the creations they had made!
