Baking Bread in Playgroup

In playgroup, students had the opportunity to bake bread. We first discussed the food pyramid where students were asked to tell me the color of each fruit and vegetable I held up, as well as tell me what fruit or vegetable it was. We then read a story that details the steps it takes for wheat to be turned into bread. After this, students took turns practicing counting to ten with pasta pieces. After this, they put their baking shirts on and were each handed a bit of bread dough that they were to roll into a small loaf and put three slices on the top. As they did this, we sang:

Patty Cake, Patty Cake Baker's Man
Bake Me A Cake As Fast As You Can
Pat it and Prick it
And Mark it with a B
Throw it in the Oven for the Beehive and Me!

Their little loaves turned out great, and they were able to sample some for snack. Great baking playgroup kids!!
