Cookie Day

Language Arts Lesson
for Cookie Day

The students will divide words into syllables.




  1. Review or introduce what a syllable is, using the entry from WordCentral, if desired.  A good way to practice syllables is to clap hands while pronouncing a word.

  2. Practice dividing words into syllables by using the students' names as a starting point.  Go around the classroom using each student's name for an example.

  3. Have the Cookie Word Worksheet cut into strips.  Pass out one strip to each student.  The students should take turns reading their word (or having it read to them) and clapping their word to determine the number of syllables.  Use the WordCentral link (or a dictionary) to enter the words for verification. The students should then place their words on the chart for whether it has 1, 2, or 3 syllables.

  4. If desired, pass out the Cookie Words Worksheet for Students to be completed for reinforcement.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff and have a lesson on cause and effect.  The students may work together to create their own If You Give a ___________ a ___________ book.

  2. Have each student bring in a favorite cookie recipe from home.  Work as a class to put the recipes in alphabetical order to create a classroom cookbook of cookie recipes.  The cookbook can be sent home with children to share with their families.

  3. Have the students write their own recipe for an "invented cookie".  They may create a name for this cookie as well as a slogan for selling it!

  4. Give each student two different cookies, i.e. an Oreo and chocolate chip cookie.  Have the students make a venn diagram comparing the two cookies.

  5. Give each student a small amount of play-doh and a cookie cutter.  Have the students write directions for pressing out a cookie cutter shape from the play-doh.
