One brilliant day in mid March, with the wonderful help of parent Tabatha Tucker, Class 2–3 made bread from grain to finished, delicious product.
The week prior to making the bread the class planted seeds in planters in the classroom. Some students chose wheat and oats for their seeds and some students made the connection that the seeds that a few of them planted might one day produce wheat berries like the ones they ground with the flour mill.
The process of grinding, mixing, kneading, and baking took the class the entire first half of the day, and a few students remarked, “Wow! It’s way easier to just buy bread!” to which others replied, “But it’s not as yummy!”
This is just the beginning of a very active spring season in Class 2-3.
