On Monday Mrs. Perry’s first graders made pumpkin tartlets in cupcake tins.
They used the pumpkin that they had cooked down earlier in the fall…the
same pumpkins that they harvested from our school garden back in October! (See November blog entry.)
In teams, the students followed the recipe for the tartlets.
