PC-1964 Cooking to Learn

Basic reading skills are fun and easy using these valuable "hands-on" life skills programs for students of varying ages and abilities. Cooking to Learn and Cooking to Learn 2 are designed to provide a practical way to increase reading comprehension, vocabulary, expressive and written language, problem solving, math, and science skills. Students will enjoy the simple routines of preparing recipes for one or more people, making the program ideal for individual or small group use. Teachers will appreciate the inexpensive ingredients used in all the recipes.

Using 29 reproducible cooking activities, this unique program allows each student to work at their own level of ability. Students are rewarded with a sense of accomplishment as they identify and assemble ingredients, follow step-by-step instructions, and complete a finished product. Students also develop self-esteem as they experience increased independence by learning a skill that is meaningful and useful. Afterwards, they complete activity worksheets relating to the task they just completed. As skill levels increase, these activities progress from multiple choice to short answer to essay and cloze activities.

Cooking to Learn comes in a sturdy, 3-ring binder with tabbed sections. Some recipes provide directions for a single serving, while many others make multiple servings. Each cooking activity takes between 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

Sample recipes
  Cinnamon rolls, cinnamon toast, French toast, strawberry banana waffle
  Grilled cheese sandwich, macaroni and cheese, pita sandwich, pizza, quesadillas, ravioli
  Banana split, cookies, fruit salad, nachos, parfait, stuffed celery, trail mix
  Chocolate milk shake, fruit smoothie, raspberry orange blend, root beer float
