Recipes and Trail Mix and Granola, Oh My!

The five day children in Room 4 have been honing their reading and fractions skills through advanced Practical Life food prep.  The last few weeks we have been making Trail Mix and Granola, and we have more fun recipes to come.  After washing their hands, the children read the recipe, measure the correct amount of each ingredient, and then mix everything together.  With the granola, the children had the opportunity to measure wet ingredients too, such as honey, vanilla, and butter.  The children do this independently, measuring everything by themselves – this provides the opportunity for older reading students to help younger not-yet reading students.  The children have requested I include the recipes so they can make these treats at home.  The recipes are for one to two servings.

Trail Mix
1/3 cup cheerios
1/3 cup pretzels
1 Tbs. raisins
1 tsp. crasins
½ tsp. chocolate chips
                Mix together and enjoy!

½ cup oats
1 tsp. raisons
1 tsp. crasins
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. honey
1 (scant) Tbs. butter
                Mix together and eat with yogurt.  (You can bake if you like but we did not).
