I Can Help

My students need pots and pans, cooking utensils, a muffin pan, cooling racks, and a toaster oven to have the tools necessary to learn how to cook.

My Students

Do you remember sitting in the kitchen helping your mother cook? Imagine watching your mother but not having the language to be able to understand what she was doing. I have slowly been collecting needed items to be able to cook with my students & teach them how to read a recipe but we need more. I am requesting additional tools such as pots and pans, cooking utensils, a toaster oven and much more.

My students are bused in from two counties and multiple towns to be able to attend my classroom, which is housed in a public K-8 school.

We have three classrooms at the school dedicated to serving students with hearing loss. This year I work with 1st-3rd grade. I have a group who are very eager to learn but don't know how to express it. We are focusing on building their language. As their teacher it is my job to provide language rich opportunities that expose them to a larger variety needs in their world.

My Project

Language drives the world we live in. Without language there is no meaning and therefore no reason to interact. I want to open another window into their world, that window is the kitchen. I am hoping to be able to cook with my class once a week to bring the kitchen meaning by teaching the language of the kitchen. We will start by learning what tools are used in the kitchen and their purpose. By cooking as a class my students will be learning the language around cooking and the kitchen. Through this process I hope they will be able to truly assist their parents in the kitchen at home and gain those memories so many of us have or helping mom cook.

Imagine being able to help a child have the experience of sitting with their parent cooking in the kitchen and understanding what is happening.

I want to give them the chance to access the kitchen. I want them to be able to access experiences that have been difficult to reach at this point.
