Cooking in the classroom is one of my class' favorite ways to get some hands on experience, work in collaborative groups, and apply what we've been learning. They get to practice measurement, food vocabulary, fractions, and following written directions, which addresses many WIDA standards for my ESL/ELL friends.
I've found that many of my ESL students become quickly proficient with common vocabulary we use at school but lack the words for even very common items at home, such as bowls or spoons. This unit includes a very thorough set of word cards to help fill in the vocabulary gaps your ESL students may have when trying to follow this recipe.
We work in partners to make the mug cakes and students work together to follow the recipe and answer the questions.
