It's Turkey Time!

For Thanksgiving, the third graders in Mrs. Yollis' class made delicious pumpkin bread and dressed it like a turkey!

Many parent volunteers helped out as the students used their reading and math skills to create a yummy holiday treat.

Reading from the giant recipe, the students worked together to mix the necessary ingredients.

…1 teaspoon of this, ¼ of a teaspoon of that… cup here, 2/3 of a cup there...

Fun was had by all the groups!

Finally, we decorated our pumpkin bread to look like Thomas T. Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving from Mrs. Yollis' Class!

    I had a lot of fun making that delicious pumkin bread. During Thanksgiving, my mom and I expanded the outstanding recipe and made enough for the whole family to have some! Whole family as in my seventeen cousins and all of my aunts and uncles. Thanks for showing us how to make it.
