  • Monday:  Yesterday, your child learned about a different kind of strength than the one they learn in P.E.


  • Thursday: The most important thing you can learn is how to follow a recipe. Actually, the most important thing you can learn is how to read, because if you don’t know how to do that, you won’t be able to tell the difference between a recipe for double fudge brownies and the instruction manual for your dad’s old lawnmower. So why is it so important to know how to follow a recipe? Well, we have three basic needs: oxygen, water, and food. Breathing is pretty instinctual. Drinking water is a no-brainer. But eating food that’s worth eating takes some knowledge: the knowledge to follow a good recipe. So this week, get together with your family and practice following this simple recipe for Banana Bites! Ingredients Bananas, Cinnamon sugar, Peanut butter, Chopped nuts, Coconut, Ice cream sprinkles, Crushed cookies, 8 oz chocolate chips. How To 1. Peel the bananas and slice into several pieces. 2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high until melted – about 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. 3. Dip the banana slices in the chocolate, then roll them in other ingredients as desired.
  • Friday:  We’ve learned a lot this month! Check it all out here:
