Sumach class celebrated fall with a harvest festival

SumachSpiceMakingSumach class celebrated fall with a harvest festival.  It included a dance to offer sumach to the gods and a song about sumach.  The class made sumach-ade with fresh sumach picked by Ms. Wortley.  Many families attended and provided foods prepared with sumach.

Here is their song:

Oh sumach oh sumach
Red like a ruby
Harvest time sumach picked right from a tree

Oh sumach oh sumach
So healthy for me
Antioxidant power and vitamin c

Oh sumach oh sumach
We celebrate thee
I share with my friends and my whole family

I eat when I’m hungry
I drink when I’m dry
If I don’t get my sumach I think I might cry
