This is a wonderful idea for Mother's Day, Father's Day, or any gift to send home- and is meant to be funny! Usually students will skip steps when they describe it to you and it's pretty humorous.
Ask each student in your class for a dish (dessert, breakfast, dinner) that they love to eat that someone at home makes for them. It doesn't matter if it's homemade or mostly store-bought (like cake from a box), but homemade is usually better for this purpose. Then, have them tell you how their guardian makes it at home, step by step. Each student's recipe gets a page of it's own.
Then, print the pages and have each student illustrate their recipe page. Copy the pages and bind them together however you wish- you can laminate it and spiral bind it or simply staple the pages together. Each parent will get a copy of each students' recipe (including their own child) as a class recipe book!
This editable resource comes with a cover page and 20 of the same recipe pages for you to type over. Either copy and paste the whole page to add more if you have more students, or delete extra pages if you have less students.
