Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL??? TOUCHDOWN TACO DIP {with “Speech Snacks” for /t/ & /d/—practice worksheets included}

172

Superbowl Sunday is this weekend and it’s sure to draw millions of Americans to their TV sets again this year. While some of us are only interested in all the entertaining million-dollar commercials inserted between the football action, others of us find it a great opportunity to have a mid-winter party and eat (and drink) a lot!!  Still there are those of us who have a vested interest in watching the actual game and rooting for their team of choice.  If you live on the East Coast in particular you may be finding yourself a little more interested in who wins since the teams are from New York and New England.  Personally, my favorite teams are out of the running (first it was the Philadelphia Eagles, then the Denver Bronco’s–sorry Tim Tebow, but you are still my favorite quarterback—and then the Baltimore Ravens).  With all my favorites out of the running, I find my interest turning to the commercials and yummy snack foods.  My nine-year-old son was introduced to the specifics of the game this year as he played on a team this fall.  He loves the game and will be back to play next season, so I will join the ranks of the worrying but supportive mom’s who watch the action on the sideline.  My husband, a die-hard football fan will be partaking in all aspects of the Super Bowl experience–the food, the commercials and of course the game.  With all this football interest in my household, I always prepare a spread of snacks appropriate for game day.  Today’s recipe is  a simple dip that I’ve revised slightly.  Continue reading “Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL???

“Easy-Peezy” (Kid Friendly) Apple Pie {with “Speech Snacks” for /l/}

097

If your kids like to help you cook in the kitchen,  then you are sure to have a great time preparing this recipe together.    And if they are working on the /l/ sound, you will find lots of opportunities to reinforce this sound, work on direction following, practice sequencing steps and your older kids will have a chance to practically apply their knowledge of fractions.

When my son was in preschool, we took a cooking class together.  This is one of the many fun recipes we learned to prepare.  It’s been many years since we took that cooking class—(time sure flies the older we get)—and  I still enjoy making this simple apple pie with him and reliving the memories of that special “mommy-son time” we shared!
