Happy Mother's Day!  Mother's Day is coming upon us quickly.  We are going to be making recipes for a Happy Mother's Day this week.  It will be a two-sided recipe card.  The students will use fractions to create their recipe.  You can either use the cut outs in the unit our have each child write their own ingredients.  On the back of the recipe the children will write the directions for how to make their recipe.  For an extra special touch you could have each student bring in a cookie cutter and attach it to the recipe with a ribbon.  If you would like to create this craft with your class visit our store at  for the templates.

Here is a picture of the sample:
