This week we are going to be making Crepes.
When children help to make Crepes they are developing motor skills and learning to sort and classify. As they pour out the ingredients they are experimenting with the different ways we can measure. They are also learning to plan and think about the order of a task.
As you work together and read the recipe, your child is learning to listen and follow instructions. When you talk to each other while cooking you will using vocabulary about food and planning.
As children make the pancakes they are learning that we can use different words and tools for measuring. As they make their creations they are exploring time, quantity, space and size as different forms of measurement.
Scooping the dry ingredients, pouring the liquid into the containers and mixing the ingredients together helps children to develop hand dominance and strength in their fingers and hands.
