On a cold winter day, kids love having a cup of warm hot chocolate. It's even more fun to make when you have yummy toppings like marshmallows or whipped cream.
⭐Making hot chocolate⭐ is a favorite home activity that has a TON of language opportunities. By using a theme such as making hot chocolate that is relatable to many students, you can teach them the necessary vocabulary and grammar concepts needed for following a hot chocolate recipe at home.
And, kids LOVE talking about food because they can relate to that experience! If you think back to all the times you sip on a hot chocolate, it usually involves a cold snowy day, an outing with a friend, or cozying up to a good movie with your drink. When students can identify with the materials you use, the learning sticks better!
Plus, when you pick a theme that can be carried over in the home setting, you increase vocabulary opportunities with those newly taught words. This How to Make Hot Chocolate Boom Cards™ set has a big focus on building tier II vocabulary, understanding the verbs needed for comprehending the steps for making hot chocolate and having students build grammatically correct sentences while practicing an important skill of sequencing.
Students will have the opportunity to sort the steps for making hot chocolate, practice acting out the verb actions while watching a real video on how to make hot chocolate, and then retell the process with visual supports. There are 3-picture scenes, 4-picture scenes, and 6-picture scenes, so you can easily scaffold for your student's level.
With this ❄️How to Make Hot Chocolate Boom Cards❄️, you will have extension activities to work on prepositions, and following directions with attributes.
