The Star Group showed enthusiasm, energy and concentration as shown by their involvement in making cupcakes during group time. This experience had followed Charlee’s interest in wanting to make all of the cakes in her special Cute Cupcake Recipe Book which she had shown her peers. Science, maths and literacy concepts were explored as the children ‘read’ the recipe which they had helped to write, measured the ingredients and described the changes taking place in the bowl. The children worked collaboratively, taking it in turns to mix and stir the ingredients. They learnt a new skill in how to scoop the mixture into the patty pan cases by manipulating two spoons as demonstrated by their educator. After the cakes were cooked the children decorated them with different coloured icing and sprinkles and shared them with the Rainbow Group!
