Let them eat cake....

Home economics the home school way!

Pernella was very excited to make her very first cake all by herself ~
A chocolate one of course.
She did a wonderful job.

It turned into an impromptu maths lesson as we discussed weighing & measuring ingredients, temperatures and time.

Time in not how long the cake took to bake but how quickly they ate it.

Must say it looks like a yummy cake too!
All for the sake of education eh?

My eldest asks to do Maths the kitchen way every day. I just have to watch him, he eats it too.

Found you through Becca's Musings. I am also homeschooling, 4 boys in my case, 11yo, almost 8yo, almost 5yo and 19mo. Drop by if you want to find out a little more about how I manage with the toddler and preschooler during school. I may not have much posted yet but will add more as I get time to post.
