Cooking to Learn 2
Like the popular Cooking to Learn program, the second version uses fun, easy-to-follow recipes to motivate students to practice basic reading and writing skills. Each recipe includes illustrated and non-illustrated activities to allow teachers to use the same lesson plan with students of varying abilities. Students learn ''real-world'' life skills as they prepare the recipes.
Reading & Writing Activities
Coauthors Lorraine Coxson, a speech-language pathologist, and Crystalyn Nilson, a special education teacher, created both versions of Cooking to Learn to help students improve basic reading and writing skills. The reproducible activities for each recipe feature multiple-choice, short-answer, fill-in-the-blank, and writing exercises that focus on vocabulary, reading comprehension, and problem-solving skills. The multiple-choice activities (offered in both illustrated and non-illustrated versions) prepare students for standardized testing formats.
Each of the 29 new recipes follows the same format as the recipes in Cooking to Learn. Materials needed for each recipe are listed along with step-by-step directions. For nonreaders and struggling readers, the illustrated directions show each step, including pouring ingredients into a pan, turning the dial to set the stovetop burner or oven temperature, using an oven mitt to remove a pan or a baking sheet, and adding final toppings.
Recipes in Cooking to Learn 2 include a selection of breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack and dessert, and drink choices. All of the ingredients are inexpensive and easy to find. Some of the recipes include a bagel treat, breakfast burritos, a pancake roll-up, cheese bread, cracker pepperoni melts, a tuna melt, fruit pizza, raspberry twists, a chocolate croissant, red lemonade, hot chocolate, and more.
