The topic I have been given for Literacy is 'Recipes' which I've not taught as a literacy topic before. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas of how to go about teaching this topic. I've started off with using a book 'Mr Wolf and The Three Bears'. In the story they begin with washing their hands before cooking so for my lowest ability I changed this section into a sensory story and they've then done various messy play using cooking tools (mashers, spoons, whisks) and this has been followed with washing hands to a song and hand massage. For my mid to high ability over the week I have read the first part of the story and then we thought about what they would need to wash their hands (each had a bag with filled with some things which were relevant e.g. soap and towel and some things that were not e.g. brush and toothpaste). They then washed their hands and we took photos. They have ordered the photos and then matched symbol sentences to the photos to complete a booklet on how to wash your hands. I'm a little stuck on how to move forward , whether I'm on the right lines in the activities I'm doing for their levels. Literacy isn't my strongest area so I'd really appreciate thoughts. I would like to do more practical and hands on activities. Any ideas would be greatly received!
