Cooking to Learn Digital Binder 2

Cooking to Learn Series is integrated reading and writing activities that motivate students to learn basic reading and writing skills with the fun step-by-step cooking activities and corresponding worksheets in these three binders. The easy-to-follow recipes offer life-skills experience as students prepare food themselves using common inexpensive ingredients.

Each recipe features illustrated and non-illustrated activities to allow teachers to use the same lesson plan with students of varying abilities. Recipes in each binder include a selection of breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack and dessert, and drink choices.

Practical Skills
The simple, real-world activities were designed to provide hands-on ways to help students improve sequencing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, expressive language, problem-solving, written language, and social skills. Multiple-choice activities prepare students for standardized test formats.
