I would like to introduce my series 'Read! Cook! Eat!'. This is a collection of short stories which all involve a particular food item in some way, and then the recipe for the food of that story is included at the end. The stories are intended to be a fun way to combine reading and cooking in one resource. Students can read each story themselves or it can be read to them, then they can go on to make the recipe of the text in an enjoyable group cooking activity. Each story is approximately 1500 words in length.
Story 2 is ‘The Great Pumpkin Chase’. Tom and his friends have been waiting for his Grandpa’s pumpkins to be ready for trick or treat at Halloween. His Grandpa warns that if the pumpkins get too ripe, they will grow arms and legs and run away, and this is exactly what happens!
The story is aimed at the 6-9 age group. The downloadable file has a 5-page story, a reading comprehension sheet and a recipe card. The pages are A4 size and can be laminated to be used again and again.
