They did it! Each child had to write how they would cook a turkey. We took the steps to the final draft and practiced reading them out loud. We talked about eye contact, prosody, and their TV personality. These firsties are the BEST! The class was treated to a behind the scenes tour of the kitchen and even filmed their stories with cooking tools! They did a fabulous job in the kitchen thanks to the fabulous lunch ladies. The kids really enjoyed the freezer the best. I think Elijah was the bravest one by going in the freezer. We looked at the mixer, behind the line where they get hot lunch, and the warmers even had 2 doors. Overall it gave the kids a real sense of cooking a turkey in the kitchen. It was so much fun. Enjoy the movie. Thank you to the fabulous lunch ladies for always taking care of us. We love you ladies! Make sure to follow the directions on your turkey and not from these 6 year olds, unless you want to visit the hospital. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
