I love that the recipes in this book are easy to follow. Each step is numbered and helped keep Josiah on track.
A little cocoa powder never hurt anybody.
Chocolate. It makes for a happy guy.
So are his "taking a bite" skills.
I do have a confession. On this lesson day, I didn't have any taco seasoning (one of the ingredients). I usually make my own, but I found out I was out of chili powder. What? How can I consider myself a cool weather cook without chili powder?
We quickly regrouped and made a cinnamon sugar mixture.
The illustrations in Eat Your Math Homework are darling. They were done beautifully by Leeza Hernandez.
After Josiah was finished cooking his allotted number of tortillas, he started cutting them into fractions.
Such effort! I wish he would put that much effort in the pile of clean dishes. (That's one of his daily chores)
He cut tortillas into 1/4's, 1/8's...even 1/12's.
And snacking on a few along the way.
This was such an awesome lesson to demonstrate fractions. The book also contains a few more challenging activities for those kiddos who can be stretched. Josiah and his Dad enjoyed an afternoon snack. Josiah was quite impressed with himself....I was impressed, as well. It was such a fun lesson.
Ann McCallum is the author several other fun books. I am so pleased with this book...I can't wait to try more! I think this book is a wonderful addition to any homeschool room or family kitchen!
P.S. I need to tell you that there is a teacher's guide and free lesson to download on the website! Just look under the Downloadables Tab.
