The Little House Cooking Club: Frontier-inspired recipes for today's kids
3:15pm to 4:15pm
Begins Tuesday February 6th!
Join our intro to cooking class for 2nd and 3rd graders! It will be a fun flashback to the days of pioneers girls and boys. Using whole foods and all-natural ingredients, kids will learn basic cooking (and STEM!) skills: mixing, chopping, measuring, and the hour-long class will give them confidence in the kitchen. Recipes will be based on those in the Little House Cookbook and others from that time period, and might include items such as johnny cakes, corn dodgers, ginger water, pancake men, pickles and so on.
Materials and ingredients will be provided
Max 6 children.
Dates: Feb 6 to March 27 (no class on Feb. 20)

hands-on and interactive math enrichment
4:00pm to 4:45pm
Join a new series of enrichment classes for 1st and 2nd graders focusing on topics that aren't typically found in the classroom. Students are introduced to higher-level math concepts through mathematical exploration, discovery and experimentation. Because the focus is on enrichment, as opposed to acceleration, students of all math abilities and interests learn something new and find something to get excited about. Topics include probability, number theory, estimation, set theory, and an introduction to algebra. Parents receive a weekly email explaining what was discussed in class, the broader mathematical framework, and potential follow-ups at home.
Time: 4:00 to 4:45
Location: Families First, 250 Baltic St
Probability unit ends March 28 (no class Feb 21). Geometry unit starts April 11 and runs through the end of the school year.
Price: $300 for the full 12-week session
