This is a compilation of what my 1st and 2nd grade students wrote today, when I asked them how they would make pancakes, possibly for a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed.
1. Students glued a photo of pancakes to their paper (download here), and drew a fancy border around the outside.
2. The PANCAKE title was to be written in block letters. I drew a sample on the board for them to follow. The letters and border are colored in with pencil, preferably using colors already in the photo.
3. Following prompts such as “Mix _____ cups of ______. Add _________. Bake / cook for _____ minutes at __________ degrees”, students fill in their own answers. Or better yet, add some other steps. Be prepared to giggle at their responses!
