I’m always up for breakfast food any time of the day! For this weeks literacy snack, we’re talking pancakes! We’re reading Pancakes, Pancakes, by Eric Carle.
“The barnyard rooster crows and Jack wakes up — hungry, of course! What does he want for breakfast? A big pancake! But first, Jack’s mother needs flour from the mill, an egg from the black hen, milk from the spotted cow, butter churned from fresh cream, and firewood for the stove. Will Jack ever get his pancake?”
This is a fantastic book that can be incorporated into many types of lessons, from sequencing to a farm unit. For our snack this week, we’re of course having pancakes!
each student will need
4 mini pancakes
a tablespoon or 2 of strawberry jam
I quickly picked both of these up on my way home from Target the day before. The pancakes come 40 to a box and are the perfect size for small hands. They are easily warmed for a few seconds in the microwave if you have one, or before you leave in the morning, pop them in the oven for 4-5 minutes and they’ll be perfect to take to school. Help the students add a bit of strawberry jam like Jack had on his pancakes and enjoy!
While the students are enjoying their pancakes, I created a printable for them to work on. Going along with our sequencing activities, they students will recall the order of the items Jack had to gather for his mom to make the pancake.
You can download the free printable from my TPT store below.
I hope your students enjoy their yummy pancakes!
See you next time!
