The Pancake Menu: What will you order? Menu & Cookbook Hands-on Math Fun (Kids Menu Books 1) Reviews
Fun, fun, fun. Lucy Ravitch teaches practical math skills in this playful menu book, in which kids learn to add, subtract, multiply, and even calculate percentages by playing restaurant. One child is the designated waiter or waitress, taking the other child(ren)'s orders, tallying up how many of each type of pancake are ordered and multiplying the tally by the pancake price and adding up the orders. Tax can be added, and diners can figure out how much to tip, learning basic percentages and social interaction! The diners then pay, using downloadable menu book money, and receive appropriate change, using applied subtraction.
Did you like to play "restaurant" when you were a little kid? Lucy has captured the playtime fun of most all kids, but with a twist of teaching about how to actually make the food instead of using pretend food, and you can even print out money so you don't give an empty hand of money to pay for your restaurant food. There are even order sheets which can be printed so they take real orders. I especially liked the rhyming, which teaches kids meters and the basics of rhyme. The book is worth it just for the recipes. Oh, and did I mention that the book is huge with fold-out pages for the recipes and real-life pictures, with "coated" pages so you can wipe it off. This book will give hours of fun to your children or grandchildren, or even your students if you are a teacher, while they are learning about math, counting money and giving tips, nutrition, rhyming and creative FUN FUN FUN pancake making.
My kids have enjoyed The Pancake Menu since they were 4 years old-- they've had so much fun playing restaurant, taking orders and learning to do sums for bills. I've used the book to teach cooking to them, and I know they'll enjoy it for years to come.
As a third grade math teacher I can hardly wait to try out this book with my students! Along with the basic pancake recipe - which can easily be put together in a classroom as well as your kitchen - there are unique variations of pancakes to make with kids. The author has a website with free downloads of printables to extend the math learning. Filling out an order form and calculating the cost of the pancakes and also the change back from payment offers children a fun way to practice their addition and subtraction skills. I love using menus for math practice and this beautifully designed book is going to be a great addition to my library.
The creative recipes made us laugh with joy. The artist's drawings in the book are very engaging and relatable. My kids are young ages 3 & 4. My son loves reading through the book during our normal reading time. The book is wonderful for so many hands-on lessons and relationship building opportunities. We love the play money pack!
This book creates a sense of independence in children by disguising teaching as play, allowing them to think in monetary terms while having hands on fun. Great for teachers, children, parents, or anyone who interacts with kids or wants delicious and unique cooking ideas to make for their families or themselves. The charming pictures, whimsical pancakes and interactive pull out format are sure to excite kids, foodies, and picture book lovers alike. A great teaching tool as well as a fun entertainment piece, this book has it all, inside of the classroom and out.
This book has a quality feel and very colorful. The ideas for pancakes are creative and really fun. Hands-on experiences are best for anyone learning. This book will make the math concepts more relevant and meaningful to any learner.
The delightful rhymes, pictures and math games make this a sure bet with kids 4-8 . There some cute pancake recipes for them too. Math can be fun when it's interactive. You can self-print Menu Money and Order pads sheets from Kidsmenubooks.com
