I am EXTREMELY fortunate to have 3 amazing aides in my classroom with me everyday. I also LOVE to pass the reins to them anytime they want! I think the kids really like the change, and I like to sit back, hang out with them, and learn something new myself. Last week one of my aides hosted her 3rd annual tortilla making class. The kids LOVE it! She teaches them how to make the dough, gives them each a piece and they knead it in their hands. They use a tortilla press and even cook them themselves on a griddle. Most are hesitant of the hot grill at first, but once they see the others participating we usually get them all to make at least one. Easy, fun homemade tortillas!
