Description

Class Experience

Students will practice following a recipe and learn cooking & baking skills to make mermaid cookies while increasing their self-confidence in the kitchen. This cooking & baking class is a real-life activity that reinforces learners’ interest in math, art, and cooking. This recipe is a great complement for kids interested in mermaids. Kids love the creative element of shaping and decorating their mermaid cookies. After baking, many learners will want to show off their mermaids to the class.
My favorite pastime is cooking & baking, and I love to teach cooking to young learners! Whenever I teach students cooking & baking, I enjoy seeing their sense of accomplishment when they create dishes with their own hands. I homeschool my children, ages eight and five, utilizing a hybrid combination of formal learning and unschooling. I have spent countless hours cooking & baking with my two children while homeschooling them. My kids' interests are what give me my class ideas! They love the Disney “Little Mermaid” movie and songs!

I have experience teaching my son, who requires unique adaptations to how new information is presented and taught. I am happy to help a neurodiverse and differently-abled learner get the most out of my class, too. We’re ND-friendly!

I have been a teacher for more than 15 years, teaching life skills and personal development strategies to youths. I have also taught cooking & baking classes to teens in a volunteer outreach program. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business and a minor in Education. I also possess a TEFL teaching certification for specialized Cooperative Learning Approaches and Introduction of New Skills to Young Learners.
I would love for all students to post a picture of their finished mermaid cookies with their feedback after cooking & baking is complete, so other students can benefit from their creative ideas!

Students should have all the ingredients, softened butter, cooking utensils, and recipe ready before the cooking & baking class begins so that students are not searching for them during cooking instruction. Recipe instructions will be available as an attachment. Feel free to substitute as needed when the exact ingredients or materials are unavailable, undesired or if any allergies exist. Decoration: Whatever you have on hand!!! Here are a few ideas: sprinkles, colored sugar, Mini M&M's, Regular M&Ms, mini chocolate chips, food coloring, or any toppings of your choice. We are going to use these to turn our cookies into mermaids. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 stick butter, softened 3/4 cup white sugar 1/2 egg 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 or 3 cookie sheets, lightly greased or lined 2 mixing bowls Measuring cups and spoons Mixing spoon Whisk, fork and toothpicks for decorating the dough Coffee cup and saucer (used for breaking the egg) Two spoons or cookie dough scoop Cooling rack or plates to cool cookies.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Beginner bakers will need a parent to be present for this Mermaid Cookie cooking & baking class. The students will be baking in an oven, so parental supervision is strongly suggested. Parents should remain off-camera while providing support and supervision. If a child falls too far behind the rest of the class during the recipe, a parent or guardian should be ready to assist the learner in completing the recipe. Before class, an adult may need to gather all the ingredients and preheat the oven. Measuring will be done during class, but some learners may need parental assistance with measuring. Since parents know their child best, some parents may prefer to put measured ingredients in separate small bowls so the learner can just add the ingredients as we go through the recipe. Please assess your child’s abilities to bake safely. During this class, an adult may need to bake the mermaids cookies in an oven.
