My students absolutely love copying down recipes when they use the writing center! They are encouraged to bring home the recipe and make it with a grownup helper. What a perfect way to incorporate reading, writing, math, science and oodles of FUN! I like to print these out, laminate them and store them in a bin labeled "recipes." You can also provide lined paper or cute recipe cards to make it even more fun for the kids as they practice those writing skills. Another option is to provide a recipe journal. As kids make the recipes, they review them in the journal and provide a rating/review.
