Cooking in the Classroom

When I had my own early childhood education classroom, we had cooking every Friday, which both the children and I loved!  Cooking is a wonderful way to integrate science, math, literacy, art, and gross and fine motor skills into the curriculum.  My cooking project would always tie of in with my theme of the month/week, a book, letter of the week, or holiday.  Doing this is a great way for children to not only develop skills, but also to make cross curricular connections.  Start cooking up your CDA so you can get into that classroom and make your own educational treats!
