The children have done a lot of baking this year and really enjoyed putting the ingredients into the mixing bowl. We decided to have measuring on the shelf as a way to practice leveling off the dry ingredient.
The children scooped a measuring spoon into the flour. They almost always ended up with an overflowing spoon. We gave a lesson on how to use the flat end of a small dull knife to "level" off the spoon. We plan on adding more spoons with cards so the children can practice specific amounts.
