Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a national campaign to bring children together with grownups in their lives to celebrate literacy by reading the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the nation. At our center, each classroom read the story Bunny Cakes at 10:15 AM! Bunny Cakes is a story about a brother and a sister, each making a cake for their grandma. One cake is beautiful and edible, while another is made from worms and dirt!
Once the story was complete, each classroom then went on to do an activity that went along with the story. Our Infant class explored edible dirt, or Oreos! Our Toddler class had a grocery store right inside their classroom while our Twos classrooms made waffle cakes together! Preschool worked on making mud cakes in our outdoor mud kitchens, while Kindergarten Prep conducted a graphing activity about birthdays. Lastly, Kindergarten made two special cakes—a beautiful one and a wormified one!
