By Nicola Salvatico, Consulting Teacher
Read your child one or more of the following books:
The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza by Philemon Sturges (Dutton Children's Books, 1999)
Cook - A - Doodle Do by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel (Harcourt Children's Books, 1999)
Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2005)
After reading one or more of the books, have your child draw a picture of making a snack such as peanut butter on celery topped with raisins. Have him label the ingredients in the picture. Then have your child dictate a list of what to do first, second and last. Learning to put steps in logical order and understanding why this is important will help your child learn how to write her own stories. Then you can make the recipe with your child.
