Dear Parents,

With Holiday Festivities around the corner, the first thing that comes to my mind is food and family!

“A Recipe for Learning”

To children, the world of cooking is magical. We combine all kinds of ingredients, then stir, simmer, boil, or bake, -presto!-something delicious is created.

Being asked to help with cooking makes kids feel grown up and important. And when they cooperate with others to make a dish, they take great satisfaction in producing something for everyone to eat.

Cooking with children-pointing out key words on the recipe as we go along, having them measure, pour, and stir-is time of learning as well. Reading, science, and math concepts abound in cooking experiences. Children learn to recognize numbers and words from recipes. They begin to use vocabulary related to cooking. And they observe how ingredients change when they are mixed together.

Cooking with young children does take more time than cooking alone. But the learning that accompanies cooking and the closeness fostered by the shared experience are worth the extra time.
