I would like to introduce my series 'Read! Cook! Eat!'. This is a collection of short stories which all involve food 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 the skills of 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. Each story is approximately 1500 words in length.
Story 1 is ‘Troll Pudding’: When Tilly is playing in the woods, she follows a troll underground and is captured by a huge community of trolls who have just finished eating their dinner. To escape being eaten as their dessert, she makes up a story about a new troll pudding and shows them how to make it.
The story is aimed at 6-8 year olds, and the downloadable file has a 4-page story, a recipe card and a blank page where students can draw a picture. The pages are A4 and can be laminated to be used again and again.
