Your students will just love designing pajamas and creating their own pajama-clad person on a delicious cupcake! This engaging activity, which is perfect for Pajama Day at your school, requires students to follow a set of written directions.
Do your students have trouble following directions? This was a widespread complaint in our district, but most of the activities we found were of the “Color the fire truck red. Color the grass green…” variety. So we designed our own fun and motivating projects, which require students to follow a set of directions written for their grade level(s).
Special attention is paid to following steps in the proper order, and students hone their organizational skills by using checklists for the steps and materials. The end result is a tasty treat, a happy child, and a student who better understands the importance of following directions.
This packet includes a reproducible set of student directions, notes for the teacher, a photograph of one student's Pajama Day cupcake and a shopping list for the teacher.
