Bringing Math into the Kitchen

Dec 11, 2020 | Stone Oak

Holidays are a wonderful time to share family traditions and invent new ones, especially in the kitchen. Cooking together and playing in the kitchen creates a highly enriched learning environment. Think of cooking time as a learning opportunity that includes essential life skills, along with early reading and mathematics. It is also a wonderful time to bond with your child. 


When cooking, children practice counting skills and learn how to measure while following a recipe. They also learn about time along with early addition skills. For example, you can ask your child to count the number of teaspoons needed in a recipe. 


Kids who do math at home with their parents, in a fun and low-stress environment, are more likely to say they enjoy math as a subject in school, and are more likely to do well in math classes.
