Cooking with kids is a terrific way to teach a variety of math and reading skills in a hands-on, enjoyable, and meaningful way.  It may not always be practical to cook with students in the classroom, but it's worth a try if you can.  Many homeschooling families already find ways to integrate cooking into their lessons.  By working together to follow a recipe, your students and children can practice the following skills:

  • reading for information
  • following directions
  • following a sequence
  • fractions
  • units of measurement
  • problem-solving
  • making observations

There are many wonderful customs, symbols, and traditions associated with Rosh Hashanah.  Eating apples dipped in honey is one of them.  Yum!
