Interviewee: Okay, so I invited you in to work in the Nature Kitchen.
Every year, there's children who just really need an outlet to the sensory needs, and it's so hard to provide that inside the classroom and you can't always go outside. I decided, hm, what if I moved our kitchen into the science area so that I had space to create this sensory zone. It could be a Nature Kitchen.
Okay, I'm waitin' for my lunch. I'm starvin'. Better get cookin'.
Male Voice: Ah, that's my favorite.
Interviewee: Oh, lemme see.
Male Voice: These.
Interviewee: Oh, my goodness. Those look delicious.
Male Voice: I love those.
Interviewee: I never had those. They look amazing.
Male Voice: They're really good.
Interviewee: Oh, my goodness.
Female Voice: I've had those.
Male Voice: Really, really good, right? Yeah.
Interviewee: Can you make me some?
Male Voice: Yeah.
Interviewee: I would love to try 'em. Thank you.
It's been great seein' the children having these open-ended materials that could be anything. They can be eggs. They can be pasta. They can be a pie. It's not what the material tells you it has to be.
How's the recipe coming along, Amie 1:27 and Mia? Looks like you're workin' hard together. Oh, looks like Sammy has some ingredients to add to your dish. Great teamwork.
It's been just great seeing the children's imaginations and all the creativity coming together in the Nature Kitchen.
