A Little Bit of Everything....Cooking, Markdown Monday, Monday Meet Up, and a Freebie!

Classroom freebies

I'm linking up with 4 awesome blogs today for "Monday Meet Up," "Eating, Drinking, and Linking," "Markdown Monday," and "Classroom Freebies!"

One of my goals this summer was to actually make some of the recipes that I've been pinning all year! Yesterday I knocked two off my list!
I made French Toast Casserole!!! Great!
Here's the pin:

And for dinner, I made Mongolian Beef. Very good as well!
Here is that pin:

I recommend both of these! Both are very easy and delicious!

As you may know, I do alot of cooking in my classroom! My kids love it and I love it! 

Cooking is not only an essential life skill, it is a great opportunity to teach students essential literacy and math skills. Through cooking and working with recipes, students are exposed to reading, sequencing, following directions, measurement, and other mathematical operations! Cooking also serves as a fabulous way to get student writing how-to, persuasive, and opinion paragraphs. 

I've been working on putting together a cooking unit for the classroom; to include recipes we've made and to include some new ideas for next year since I'll have the same kiddos again! 

Well it's complete! I just finished it up lastnight and would love to offer it at a discounted price for "Markdown Monday."

The recipes follow the following format and provide easy to follow step-by-step directions. Recipes that feature a girl require some cooking, while recipes featuring a boy require NO cooking!
Here's a preview of some of the learning activities included for the recipes!
This is not just an ordinary cookbook! It is about getting students engaged in learning. With these 34 timely, and simple kid-friendly recipes your students will practice sequencing, graphing, computation, measurement, and learn to write persuasive, opinion, and how-to paragraphs. 

And for Markdown Monday, you can get it for $2 off through Friday!!!
