Cooking with kids is another great way to involve them in activities that help promote literacy. They can read (or listen to you read) a recipe, search for important details, organise their thoughts, write lists of needed ingredients, follow instructions, absorb the format of a text type known as a procedure, and have the fun of working with Mum or Dad in the kitchen.
In The Book Chook Cook Book, you’ll find child-friendly recipes sent in by bloggers, writers and other literacy lovers. How about making some Fluffernutters with your kids, or Rolo Pretzel Turtles?
