Recipes - Tried It Tuesday and SALE!!

Have you ever gotten free recipe cards in the mail, and not know what to do them?
Well take them to school, and use them to teach sequencing, reading directions, and a whole bowlful of other yummy things!
I got these recipe in the mail multiple times years ago, and they always came with an opportunity to purchase a cookbook or monthly cards - you know, kind of like a birchbox for the chef of the family.
I decide to take them to school to use them for a literacy center.
As you can see in the picture below, the students choose a recipe, write about the steps, and illustrate it.
They love it!
The pictures on the recipe cards just make your mouth water!

I also let them choose one recipe that they want copied to take home.
It often makes me laugh at the ones they choose - some are quite complicated but sure look delicious.

I got a nice surprise this year when one of my families sent me a picture on a Sunday of dad and daughter making the pie from our recipe collection.

She even brought in a piece for me to try on the Monday after.
Just one of the perks of the job!
Is that not the cutest picture?  It made my day.

Be sure to stop by Holly's blog to get some other great ideas from her Tried It Tuesday linky.
And check out my Teachers Pay Teachers store this Thursday and Friday for the big sale!
This is my newest product!

  1. This is BRILLIANT! Our local grocery store has a spinning rack with free recipes. I might need to grab some. I also get Taste of Home magazine in the mail that I sometimes need to weed through. I of course love looking at the recipes, but everyone knows I don't like being in the kitchen. DOING THIS!!!!
