5, 4, 3, 2, 1... LIFT OFF! I am officially a blogger!

     With much help, guidance and assistance from Kourtney Payton of Mrs. Payton's Precious Kindergarteners my blog is up and running!
     I am so excited to have this forum to share what all my wonderful students do!  They are an amazing bunch of 'cuties' and we have a ton of fun in all that we do!
     This is a short week for us!  I have big plans for Wednesday- we'll be making butter like the Pilgrims did, whip up a batch of Pumpkin Pie Playdoh and make 1st thanksgiving story retelling bracelets!  Want to share in the fun?  Here is the recipe for the playdoh!  Be sure to stop by again soon!   Thanks for joining in my lift-off fun!
Pumpkin Pie Play Dough
5 ½ c. flour
2 c. salt
1 container cream of tartar
¾ c. oil
1 container pumpkin pie spice
4 c. water
Orange food coloring

Mix all ingredients.  Cook & stir over medium heat until lumps appear.
Take out of pan and knead on a floured service until turns to ‘dough’ consistency.

~This recipe makes enough for a small ball for 24 students.  I usually make a batch at home so that it is cooled and ready to be played with.  I make the dough with my students~ each get a turn to help stir (I then use a hot plate to cook it). 
While it is cooking/cooling I allow them to play with the cooled batch from home
and then give each a piece of the dough we made as a class.
