I think food prep and cooking/baking are an excellent lesson in beginner maths, not to mention good life skills learning. So, my boys often work in the kitchen with me. This morning, while Rylan was busy working on a dinosaur colour booking, Damian and I made some yummy fresh strawberry ice-cream.
After that both boys hopped into the Learning Tower together and we made pizza for lunch. Here Rylan is mixing and Damian is pouring in the next ingredient. We make a yeast-free, (mostly) whole wheat crust for our pizza.
Kneading and rolling the dough together.
Having so much fun together!
After a tasty lunch had been shared and Damian was fast asleep, Rylan and I did a little more learning together. Right now I am having Rylan re-read all the kindergarten level readers as a general review before we start on his Grade 1 materials.
