Chicken burger

I woke up yesterday morning preparing the ingredients for making the chicken burger for his lunch box.  Whilst waiting for the piggy to wake up, an idea hit me!  Why don't let him make his own burger?  Firstly, it has been quite some times my boy did not involve any food preparation or baking in the kitchen with me.  Secondly, that would be fun (for a change from the boring and monotonous workbook that I have been asking him to do every morning)!  Yeah, it was a daily routine I have requested since the onset of the year in preparation for his formal schooling beginning next year 2015.  All it took was to spend half an hour on the workbook be it Chinese, English or Maths.  At times, he would obediently follow my instructions. Other times, he would negotiate or throw tantrums that I would almost my cool.   At first, he was quite reluctant and did not buy my idea.  However, within seconds, he was engrossed into making his burger that he actually enjoyed the process.  With the increased of interest I saw building up inside him, I continued with our learning expanding to whatever it come to my mind.  In the end, these were what we had achieved in the morning :-

  • Assemble/layer the burger as he wish
  • Write down the ingredients on the whiteboard
  • Expand the context to simple business concept; selling burgers, set promotional price and gimmicks
  • Through the promotion, learn about cost/original price, selling price, profits
Needless to say, he loved his chicken burger!  He even packed more salad to fill up his Ben10 theme bento box.
