Pancakes Anyone?


This is a Literacy Center I use at the beginning of the year.  We read one of the many books available for pancakes...


To create the station, I used a Dollar Tree plate, some fun foam, and an old pan I had....cut out circles from the fun foam, add letters with a missing blank....

then draw the answer circles on a plate.

The idea is the kids serve up a pancake to match the missing letter.  
I coded them on the back so they were self-checking.
It's a great activity to start the year with reviewing the alphabet :)



  1. This is a very good idea! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Pancakes? Did I hear pancakes? They are my absolute favorite breakfast food. Every time we go to a restaurant for breakfast my family says, "Let me guess... you're getting pancakes." Oh wait... this wasn't about breakfast, huh? See how crazy I am about pancakes?

    You KNOW I am gonna LOVE your cute activity.

  3. So stinkin' cute! Maybe we could use those cool cutouts from Target (with the big cookie jar) and do cookies, too. :) Thanks for sharing.


  4. I'm lovin' it...gonna use this for my preks matching colors, numbers, and ABCs. Yummy activity, thanks for sharing!

  5. Love it, I wish I had these supplies right now so I could make a few for my class.

  6. Thanks for the great ideas! I just started blogging professionally and am totally addicted because of sites like yours:)

  7. I love this idea! I was recently given a bunch of felt and had been considering making some play food out of it for the kitchen center-looks like pancakes will be first on my list. The kids are going to have so much fun with this!
