Cranapple Pie Recipe

Baking can be a fun, messy, exciting, and tasty adventure for young learners. It requires a lot of essential skills and provides many opportunities for educators to show their learners how useful skills like reading, writing, measuring, and math can be used in everyday situations like baking.

"Pie in the FESA" Colouring Page

We thought we'd take a break from our weekly interview-based blog posts and provide another resource for parents with young children to use at home. In keeping with our fundraiser's theme, we designed a colouring page that features a lattice-top homemade pie.
