Thunder Cake!!


This week we have been working on our How-To writing and our story of the week was Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco so it was the perfect time to make our own thunder cake in the classroom! I used the recipe from this website (http://thefrugalgirls.com/2013/09/crockpot-devils-food-cake.html) though the book has a recipe for "true" thunder cake in the back.



First we wrote the steps together




Then we got busy putting it all together











Everyone had a chance to mix and we poured it in the bowl
 




We then wrote the steps so we could make it at home too!








Then we had to wait...



We checked it after lunch and it looked ready!


So we went out for recess while it cooled. I think it was the first time they were ever excited to come off the playground! 


We dished it out and added some cool-whip and sprinkles of course.




They dug in




And everybody gave it two thumbs up!!







You can watch the story with your child (or class) here:
