Connie Weber, representing Pampered Chef, shared hints and tips about measuring and reading recipes. Students then read a recipe on how to make a reindeer cookie. They had to gather the proper ingredients, then follow the recipe card to create the cookies?which the later sampled.
There were several daily activities throughout the week. Fifth-graders presented food poems during the morning announcements. Librarian Sandy Arnold challenged the students with food trivia questions from children?s literature.
Winners received a snack food and a juice bag if they answered the bonus question correctly also.
Finally, students and staff celebrated ?DEAR? time each day. Students carried books with them everywhere they went. When the announcement was made, everyone had to ?Drop Everything And Read? for 10 minutes.
On Friday the week?s celebration culminated with a variety of stations dealing with food, literature and fun.
