I promised the return of Tasty Tuesday, and we did have cooking class this week on Tuesday. Just getting around to posting about it now, though, since late nights of parent-teacher conferences the past two days meant I didn't even turn the computer on once I got home.
Our wonderful school nurse, Jill, went apple picking with her family last week. She is often in our room during our weekly cooking class, since she does a tube feeding for one of my students at the time we usually cook. She thought of us as she was apple picking, and brought us back a big bag of delicious apples! Thank you, Nurse Jill! We had to make something with apples, then...Apple Bread it was! (The recipe is from one of my fabulous classroom staff members, Lizzie, who is an incredible cook/baker!)
First, I want to share my new way of doing visual recipes for my students (and this is the format each Tasty Tuesday recipe will be in from now on) - they are so successful and more engaged with the visual recipes!
I'm loving this new way of doing visual recipes. We used to just have everything on one page - and that basically meant staff were reading and directing the entire thing. Now, staff do still read the recipe steps and ingredient names, because all of my students are non-readers. But, the students can do so much more and be so much more involved this way, because they begin to recognize the pictures for both the actions and the ingredients. It's much more engaging!
I forgot to take photos of our completed apple bread, or even photos during cooking (the above photos were taken in my own kitchen as I reenacted the process, haha). Conference week does that to me! But trust me, it was fun and delicious!
I decided to put our visual recipes on my TPT store, so if you'd like them, they're available! I also included a recipe review worksheet and a worksheet for students to recall ingredients that are and aren't in the recipe. If you want visual recipe for apple bread, check it out:
