I found this neat link with some great ideas to use holiday baking as a lesson!

I'm pretty much done with holiday baking, but I am going to use some of this for later as we bake many of our own breads and snacks and it would be great to have these worksheets to help me turn it into some great learning momemnts!

I will be.  The curriculum just introduced a small section on fractions.  Fractions are important in baking.  We will use it as an area to grow on and expand.  Although my oldest is 6 she does enjoy baking.

 YES!!  We baked 2 batches of cookies on Tuesday night.  We halved one of the recipes so they got plenty of fration practice.  We counted out dozens.  We practiced reading.  We made up word problems.  Then we wrote a procedure for making cookies.  We talked about kitchen safety and wrote a list of the rules.  There are so many lessons that can be derived from holiday baking!

We, too, use every normal activity as a means of learning!

 This isn't any different from most days for us. The only difference is that we are cooking more of our favorite foods. :)  But I like the website. That is a neat idea. :)

One of my favorite things to do is ask my dad to convert the measurements in her head.

We are baking sat and sun. They are included every time I bake, and try to make it as educational as possible
