Oatmeal Pancakes: Cooking with Fractions
Admit it. Sometimes you just don't feel like rolling out of bed in the morning. Well, with a host of other excuses (er, holidays) on the calendar, letting your kids make breakfast in bed every now and then seems only fair.
The kitchen can be a favorite place for kids. And cooking helps them develop valuable skills-- from eye-hand coordination, to reading, to math. Cooking is especially good for helping kids practice fractions on the fly.
This Oatmeal Pancakes recipe is not only easy for young kids to make, but it's also easy for them to cut in half, or to double-- a great way for them to practice the early fractions they're learning in first grade.
