No Fuss, No Muss

No cook, bake, chill or do anything but make and eat all in 30 minutes or less sweet treat recipes wanted!

I suppose first I should start off with an explanation of my grand plan that will get me entered into the annals of teaching wisdom (egotism is so great)

Class lesson two weeks from now will be to make a special treat (well, you guessed that part.) That's the fun part of course! What I plan to do is set out little bowls with the ingredients in them, covered and labeled. I will make cards to match, which I will read off, and the children who are poorer readers will have to match the letters. The better readers will announce the directions. (Improving speech!) There is a good possibility of learning at least a few new English words (and all the senses will be used in learning to acquire the new words.) All the children will have to follow directions, a skill that is lacking in one or two of them. Attention, attention, must also be paid, as a few of the children have focusing problems. I will probably also include the Hebrew words, so the better English speakers will learn new vocabulary as well.

The lesson is planned for at least two or three weeks away as I must first confirm that no child is allergic to any of the ingredients in the recipes. Anaphylactic shock is not conducive to learning. It is also liable to get me fired.

But when it comes to actually moving into the kitchen, I'm afraid this brain runs out of ideas. So please, please, please, help this poor teach out and send me some of your tried and true, quick and easy, snacks that kids will love!

Thank you!!!!
