When we bake together, we are learning a lot about our world.
We are building strength in our fingers in hands as we stir and mash ingredients.
We are building vocabulary as we discuss what we see, and smell, and hear.
We are learning to balance our rights with the rights of others as we wait our turn for a tool, and observe what our friends are doing.
And when we taste our cookies, shaped like Hanukkiyah and dreidels, we are understanding Jewish symbols and building community together. Plus, they’re delicious!
