This year Sam's homework is different than last year. It's a bit more relaxed and can range anywhere from counting money, writing a story, attending a club meeting, to cooking in the kitchen. I love this idea as it provides versatility for bust schedules and reminds parents that kids learn constantly, not just when they're sitting at a desk. Tonight Sam helped make dinner, Tuna Spirals.
|She was focused, so a bag clip would have to do to keep her hair back. ;)|
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package yeast
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2/3 c up warm water
1 can tuna drained
1/4 cup egg beaters
1/4 cup shredded cheese
2 tablespoon parsley
pinch salt and pepper
Stir flour, salt and yeast in medium bowl until mixed. Stir in oil and wter until a soft dough forms. Put dough on lightly floured surgace and shape into a ball.
Knead dough for five minues and let rest for five minutes
While the dough is resting, mix filling ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Grease round cake pan. Roll dough into 9 inch square on floured surface. Spread filling on rolled dough. Tightly roll up dough and pinch edge to seal. Cut roll into one inch slices. Put slighly apart in pan. Cover and let rise while oven is warming.
Heat oven to 375'. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Sam was learning about fractions while measuring. She did get a bit stuck on 2/3 cup. I asked her how many 1/3 cups would fit in the 1 cup measure. She wasn't sure. So we measured 3- 1/3 cups of water fit into the one cup measure. I'm sure as she gets more practice fractions will click.

Here's some proof of the anoying little brother.
