COOKING WITH FAIRYTALES

Leave a comment

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK READ ALOUD

As an elementary classroom teacher I was always looking for opportunities to encourage personal  connections with literacy.   My own childhood connection with fairy tales brings back warm memories. And what fairy tale doesn’t include some kind of food experience? I started rereading the old favorites and here are some of the cooking related projects I came up with: Jack and the Beanstalk: Black Bean Dip, Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Porridge Your Way, Baba Yaga: Chicken Soup, The Little Red Hen: Bread Making, The Three Billy Goats Gruff: Kale Chips and Kale Smoothies (We took liberties with the grass related eating theme.) Irish fairy tales: Irish Soda Bread.
