Welcome to Our Blog

We plan to use this blog to share our information with parents who are unable to attend the workshop. Those who attended can use this as a convenient tool to communicate with other parents or educational professionals by posting comments.

Our blog will include titles of books and activities that can promote literacy within the home. We will provide a list of resources that will include anything from ideas to places to visit that may help contribute to a child's literacy growth. Feel free to ask questions and get answers through our blog.

Cook using Recipes

Age Group: Preschool/Kindergarten

Have your child assist you in cooking and following a recipe. You could make something by following a recipe. Make it clear to your child that you are following a recipe. This will help introduce them to using step-by-step instructions. Discuss the results of following the directions of the recipe and the end result.

Ideas that are fun for children to make are cupcakes, playdough, or pizza. There are many other things that could also be fun for children to take part in making.

  1. This technique works, I work for an after school program at an elementary school. Every Friday we do cooking. I've made playdough with the kids. They LOVE IT! its easy for my 5 and 6 year old's to follow directions. It's also fun for me to get involved and help out. they need some help with stuff but other than helping measure things, it's great
