Cooking in the classroom is always a fun activity for the children. It is a great way to encourage language development among other things. During the process of preparing the vegetables we have conversations including descriptive vocabulary about what they are doing and the vegetables they are including.
They get a chance to observe, demonstrate and use action words such as chop, cut, slice, pour and stir.
It is satisfying for them to see the results of their hard work and even more fun to get to taste what they helped to create! “ Wow, this tastes awesome!”
“I can’t believe we really made soup from a stone.”
