Yes, I’m a little late posting this …. but last week was Tucker’s turn to be Star of the Week in his class at school. When you attend 5 days/week school, being Star of the Week is a bit of a bigger deal. The biggest responsibility is bringing a show-n-tell for every day of the week. This was not a hard task for Tuck. He’s that kid that wants to share everything … and I do mean everything with his classmates.
Every Star of the Week gets to bring special treats on one day of his ‘term’. Once again, I pretty much procrastinated on this. Having experience as a teacher, I appreciated snacks that were easy to distribute and NOT messy. Sooo, I decided to make chocolate covered pretzel rods and oreo pops. Well, I had never made either but thought, “how hard can dipping stuff in chocolate be?” I know, I said the same thing about Sawyer’s candy corn cookies. Well, the pretzel rods went great.
… and the oreos …
… the rest …. Well, let me tell you, these are not as easy as all these websites say. You’re suppose to take the oreo apart, insert the lollipop stick into the cream, and put the oreo back together. Sounds easy, right? Right! I don’t know if I was just too rough with my oreos but I broke every stinkin’ wafer!
So chocolate covered pretzel rods it was!
Thursday was a big day for our SOTW. It just so happened to be the day that Tanganyika Wildlife Park came to talk to the preschoolers. They brought several animals with them and Tucker seemed to be most interested in this one…
Thursday was also the day that I was to come and read a book to the class. I left after the wildlife assembly and came back about 15 minutes before school was to let out. When I arrived, Mrs. Bolan had left the door open ajar so that I would know that it was ok to enter. Thursday was Tuck’s most favorite show-n-tell. Can you tell what it was?
