Together we will read one of my favorite books, "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie." Then, we will discuss how important it is to share, especially when it comes to cookies!
For my older friends, we will bake chocolate chip cookies from scratch. They will learn how to measure out ingredients, how to combine them, the difference between a dozen and a Baker's dozen, and even kitchen safety.
For my younger friends, we will play the chocolate chip game. This game involves placing the correct number of chocolate chips on the numbered cookie base. We can also use our letters and match upper case chips to their corresponding lower case cookie base.
Beside our reading skills, both modifications involve working on our math skills. Whether it is counting chocolate chips or measuring cups of flour - Cookie Math will test and improve our knowledge.
