As you know, I am teaching my granddaughter Sofia to read. She has learned a lot so I want to go to the next step. She now knows quite a lot of letters so that she can put together many words. I was thinking that I could write down a recipe for a cake and we can cook together if she can read it. What do you think? The picture is Sofia 5 years ago.

Perfect lesson. The recipe will set a purpose for reading! When kids set a purpose for reading, they are using a very important reading strategy.

I can't remember exactly what I did to teach my two to read, but they were both pretty good before they even started school. If Sofia likes cooking it sounds a great way to advance her reading.

I taught both of my children how to read a zillion years ago. I hope I can still teach something to these modern kids.

Wow so cute baby and so lovely.I think it is not yet the right time for her to learn cooking.Children need to play to exercise their body and brain.They like toys . I doubt if she will like cooking hehehehe.

She loves to make cakes! Of course, she helps mix the batter and pours it in the pan. I measure and watch the oven. She eats most of it

In my own opinion, Sofia will grow as a very smart girl because she have you who is very diligent teaching her many things.I wonder if you are a teacher by profession. Are you?

@marguicha I see. So, you were a professor. That is why I see in you a characteristic of someone who is a professional in teaching field.
