When Your Dy Doesn't Go As Planned......Bake Cookies

This week, instead of doing our "regular" school work, I had planned on working on a review item for the rest of the week.  We needed to watch a movie and then do several activities to go along with the movie.  We got the movie from Netflix on Saturday.  Yesterday when we took it out of the envelope, we discovered it had red marker all over the back of it.  We tried to play it anyway, but of course it kept skipping.  All of my plans for school for the week went out the window without the movie.  We have requested a new one from Netflix but who knows when it will get here and we have planned to take next week off.

With nothing planned for our school day, I decided we would head to the kitchen and make cookies.  You can cover a lot of different subjects in the kitchen:

Health-hand washing, kitchen safety
Reading-reading,following directions
Math-fractions, counting
Science-baking powder reactions

I even got some Latin in by turning Adeste Fideles on the radio while we were mixing the cookies.  Our Peanut Butter Blossoms were delicious, we had fun, and we got in a little bit of "school" after all.
