The holidays create a perfect opportunity to utilize the kitchen for special lessons. You can measure, study fractions and volume, practice reading skills, practice following directions, practice daily living skills, and much more. One of the things we like to do is discuss the countries that the various ingredients may have come from. This recipe is one way to introduce your student into utilizing the bread machine, both for using at home and for homemade gift-giving.
