Count your pancakes


Dear Students (and Learning Partners)

Today, I want you to watch Pingu the Penguin on this video about  MANY times – will you do so? Each time, you have to do something different while watching. Ready?

1st Watch: See what Pingu is up to and tell someone the story in Only Two-Three Sentences.

2nd Watch: Start naming all the objects you see – you have to be fast (For example: door, penguin, floor, spoon…). Do this with someone, and take turns – see who gets the most names of objects!

3rd Watch: Start naming all the actions you see (For example: run, stir…) How many actions did you name?

4th Watch: Count the number of times pancakes are flipped in this video.

If you managed to play all the 4 games and are still here with me – then run around the room four times shouting: Yay! I’m a Super Duper Kiddo!”

Pingu learnt how to make pancakes. When I was very small (like some of you), I learnt a Nursery Rhyme about pancakes a bit like this one. I hope you like it and sing along. Watch as many times as you like and sing loudly!

When you see me in school, next – sing the first line, and I’ll know that you’ve watched the video!

Bonus: Here’s a recipe for pancakes, in case by now, you’re feeling hungry.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or healthy wheat flour)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg (OR 1/2 cup mashed banana, OR 1/2 cup curds or yoghurt)
  • Vegetable oil for frying pancakes
  • Assorted toppings, such as butter, icing sugar, honey, jam, whipped cream, chopped fruits or chocolate syrup

COOKING DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the dry ingredients well.
  • Whisk all the wet ingredients together (except oil and toppings)
  • Add the dry ingredients gradually to the wet mixture and blend into a smooth dough (no lumps)
  • The dough should be of pouring consistency
  • A grown-up should be present for the rest of the process as assistant chef
  • Heat a skillet (frying pan) on the gas
  • Add a spoonful of oil to the hot skillet
  • Add a large spoonful of pancake dough to the hot oil
  • Turn the skillet carefully to spread the dough evenly
  • You can turn the pancake after a minute to brown the other side
  • Don’t try to toss the pancake – it needs skill! But you can hum the pancake song
  • Make enough pancakes for both of you
  • Arrange the pancakes on two plates
  • Add your favourite toppings (fresh fruits are a healthy option)
  • Enjoy your pancakes with your assistant chef – you’ve certainly earned it!

Next day, you must tell your teacher and friends in class all about your “Pancaking adventure”.

  5. Respected mam,
    I found so many things such as penguin, toys, table, chair, egg, jug, grinder, bowl, gas stove, apron, wash basin, spoon, ,cupboard, racks, drawers, milk, pan, pancake, snowman, bag, snow, plate, tap.
    The actions were running, throwing, mixing/grinding, flipping of pancake, speaking, slipping, pouring, clapping, eating, drinking, walking.
    The pancake was flipped 16 times [according to me]
