Bread Comes to Life! Apr 13, 2022 bread comes to life

After reading the story “Bread Comes to Life”, kindergarten students at CAPS (Summit) discussed the ingredients that are needed to make bread and the process behind the loaves we buy at the store.  They focused on the ingredient wheat; the process of growing and harvesting wheat to make flour.  Students then had the opportunity to make their own “bread in a bag”, where they got to experience mixing the ingredients, kneading the dough, forming the loaf of bread, and allowing it to rise.  Students then took their bread home to bake and enjoy!

Bird Observation at Summit Mar 29, 2022 Bird Observation

Ms. Heilman-Houser's second grade class at Summit has been feeding and observing birds this school year. 

They recently started a unit on measurement in math. Students were able to use their measuring skills to measure yarn and alpaca fiber and record their measurements in inches. Then they placed the fiber and yarn into whisks to make nesting whisks for the birds to help them build their nests. They hung their whisks in the trees around the school so students could observe birds using them.
