Ever feel so stressed you want to punch something? We did just that in my class yesterday. Testing season is upon us, which means that things are a little more stressed than usual at school. I’m scrambling to get huge portfolios of work assembled for each of my students for their VAAP (Virginia Alternate Assessment Program). I realized yesterday that we were in need of a much deserved fun break and knew what to do.
Enter the famous ‘dirt’ recipe! Do you remember it? Only 4 ingredients: pudding mix, milk, oreos, and gummy worms. Ok, 100% not Paleo, but fun for kids. I did end up eating a gummy worm, woops. Our favorite part by far of assembling the treat was crushing the cookies by pounding it out.
My students got a kick out of this sweet spring treat.
