Look what's cooking in the Bug Cafe! I am excited to begin to incorporate more cooking in my classroom this year. With a kitchen set-up and goal, it should become a part of the routine instead of something special. Also, I want to cook "real" food that is healthy and tastes good - not just silly treats that use a lot of frosting and look like a butterfly or polar bear. Although, admittedly, most of the cooking the kids will do independently will be considered snacks.
To help get things "cooking" (sorry, I had to) I've been looking at:
Pretend Soup - My favorite kids cook book. Plus, there is a helpful teacher guide.
Montessori Services - I am so loving their little activities for peeling a carrot or slicing a banana.
Sew Liberated's Montessori Child's Apron - The most perfect kid's apron. Now I just need to time to make some.
I would appreciate any links, ideas, recipes, etc. that you have. With this, I am looking forward to adding a new tag "cooking in the classroom" to the blog.
