Recipe Writing Project
It is the season of family and tradition! This assignment will require help from you- the parents!
“Writing that explains or tells us how to do something (called procedural writing or expository writing) is very important in our day-to-day lives. As we all know, there is nothing more frustrating than directions that are unclear or badly written. This activity helps children understand what procedural writing is and how to read it. This project demonstrates real-life uses for this kind of writing and shows why it is so important.” (from www.readwritethink.org)
Over the next few weeks, I would like your student to assist you in cooking something. This does not have to be an elaborate meal but rather a dish that you would like to share together. For this project, your student needs to watch you or, even better, assist you in making a meal. As you are making the dish, your child will need to write down each step (even the small ones!) in detail (including measurements, times, etc.). Then, once the dish is complete (and digested!), the student will turn that in to a recipe card. This can be hand written or typed, but the recipe must be submitted with details and tips. The students have the details of how this should be done.
If this project is not possible for any reason, or if you will need additional time, please let me know. Otherwise, all recipes will be due on Tuesday, December 2nd.
Thanks for your help!
