Teaching kids functional skills is something that is a passion of mine. And I love co-treating with occupational therapy too. When you're working with preschool students, students in self-contained settings, students in life skill classrooms and students with autism -- this hands-on recipe curriculum is exactly what these students need to learn and practice the skills they need in life -- activities of daily living.
When I co-treated with the occupational therapist every week, I could never find exactly what I needed for those sessions and so we winged it. I've finally created the perfect no prep resource that you can print off now (and after a quick run to the grocery store for supplies) and use right away with students this week!
BUY THE ENTIRE BUNDLE OF SEVEN RECIPES in the SPEECH RECIPE CLUB
Students will learn how to sequence a recipe visually by using black and white or color cards and they can take home the recipe sheets to share with mom and dad. Or have them color and prepare a double-sided 12 half-sheet mini-book with all of the steps required to make cookies. To extend the lesson, ask students to compare and contrast ingredients by using the sheets provided, answer WH-questions about the recipe with pictures for correct pronoun usage or the WH-question task cards without pictures. With the cards that the students have already colored, they can sequence and retell the entire experience of making a special recipe.

Pages 45-46 are meant to be printed in color and laminated for repeated use as visual aids while the students make the recipe.
**NOTE: Before making this recipe, please check to make sure students don’t have allergies to ingredients like milk by asking the classroom teacher and school nurse.**
