A, wanted to make cookies this morning, and I wanted to continue our lesson on Roman numerals. So, I gave her the letter cutters from our Alphabake Cookbook and Cookie Cutter Set (by Deborah Pearson), and ask her to cut Is, Vs, Xs, Ls, Ds, and Ms, out of chocolate sugar cookie dough.
She baked them, and I arranged some of the cookies, according to all of our ages, on a plate.
After lunch, the older children, and the Man of the House, had to find their correct age in Roman numerals, before they could have their cookies. I gave the younger children their cookies, but we did review the V and I, and how they could be used to make both 4, and 6.
I reserved the extra cookies, for when they realized some got more than others.
