Making Kindergarten Bread is a great activity for families and classrooms; it’s foolproof, and can include all sorts of fun and meaningful stories and songs. Both Betty and her daughter, Anna, baked the bread weekly with their Kindergarten classes. The students got to experience the life cycle of wheat, and a connection to where their nourishment came from. They planted wheat in the spring, harvested and winnowed in the autumn, ground wheat berries for the bread in a hand grinder, and mixed, kneaded, and formed the dough into delightful shapes. Finally, they baked the bread and ate it together. The childrens’ favorite shape was a wheat sheaf with a mouse, so this recipe teaches you how to make bread that way. However, do feel free to experiment with your bread shapes; braids, alphabet letters, and favorite animals were all popular in the Kindergarten.
