Children learn about Spanish cuisine

Outside the Box – LeeAnn Kozan and Ana Montorio On Wednesday afternoon, the Panama City Renaissance School second graders had a Spanish culinary experience at their teacher’s home. During this activity, they made a Spanish omelet. This hands-on project complimented their classroom activities of following an outline and directions (recipe), working together, learning, using new vocabulary, and the necessity of being careful and paying attention – potato peelers, egg cracking, keeping the food in the cooking dishes, etc.     The children thoroughly enjoyed the reward — eating their omelet along with other traditional Spanish food – bread, tomatoes, ham, almonds and a Spanish desert.   The conversation during the event was mostly in Spanish. Bravo kids and gracias Sra. Montorio!...
