This Mother's Day Class Recipe Book has been a hit with my students' parents for the past 8 years! They turn out SO CUTE! You get some students who actually know how to cook, and then you get a few that say the funniest things, like put it in the oven for 24 hours! I don't correct them. That's what makes these books so cute and memorable for the parents.
Included in this packet you get a cover page and the directions page. I also included directions on how to assemble it.

Print one cover page. Fill in the blanks.
Print a class set of the recipe page. (I usually print two sets – one is a rough draft and then the kids edit their writing…then they rewrite their recipe onto another copy). I would not suggest that you type their recipes – the recipe books look SO CUTE with the kids’ handwriting!
Model writing a recipe that YOUR MOM makes. Discuss what the words “ingredients” and “utensils” mean.
Have your kids share some recipes that THEIR moms make at home.
Pass out a rough draft page to each student and have them write directions on how to make the food. The box is for them to illustrate (and color) the food.
After everyone is finished with their recipe, you can choose to have them edit their writing, or you can just use their first draft.
Put the class recipe book together in the order that you want.
Print a class set of the recipe book (be sure to staple the book together).
If you want, get some butcher paper and have the kids decorate it…then use that as wrapping paper so they can give it to their moms on Mother’s Day.
NOTE: I have done this the past 8 years and have had so many parents tell me how much they love it. It’s adorable. One of my students had written how to make pizza. The directions said 1 – buy the pizza, 2 – take it out of the box, 3 – put it in the oven for 3 hours. Adorable!!! Then, on the other hand, you would be surprised that some of your kids will actually know how to cook!!! Enjoy!
