Pasta sauce & Strega Nona= best day ever

Strega Nona!

Today was amazing. We have been harvesting buckets of tomatoes this week. So I cooked up Orca tomato sauce for some spaghetti noodles. I even added rosemary, oregano, and thyme from the garden. We then read the story Strega Nona– one of my favorite books starring everybody’s favorite witch- Strega Nona and her sidekick Big Anthony (ok- a little biased there). A magic pot of spaghetti is involved and madness ensues. Students got to get their art on by retelling the story with their own words or pictures (and yes it takes hours to sharpen a class set of colored pencils- but they are better than crayons!). It was a lot of fun to combine eating, drawing, stories, and garden. Plus the kiddoes thought the sauce was delicious.
