Since I am not crafty and never will be… I am turning Making It Monday into what I make for my classroom or with my students. (They, of course, think I am super crafty and artistic. But then again, they think I am a good singer, so never trust a 5 year old!)
Last week while learning about the letter Mm, we cooked… a lot!
It was a delicious week!
Every student of mine now knows and remembers the letter Mm makes the /m/ sound.
We also discuss why we learn to read and why we learn about numbers… because we use these skills everyday, esp when we cook. I literally let my students measure, pour, stir, and create their items. I only finish it up and deal with the “heat” elements for safety. We make a HUGE mess, but it is fun and very education. Plus, most of my students have never had these types of experiences at home and need to know these skills.
If you are looking for some more Mm activities, don’t forget to download my FREE phonics sheets that use the Recipe for Reading Letter order.

Do you cook with your students? How often? Why or why not?
