|HELP US PAY THE BILLS!|
Our Cooking Club for Kids needs support from you! Please spread the word about the work we are doing for kids with allergies and their classroom teachers!
Are you a classroom teacher looking for free online food allergy curriculum resources? Our food allergy club for kids has developed free classroom food allergy safety lessons for teachers like yourself in order to help keep your student(s) with food allergies safe at school.
Based on a character in a children's chapter book, our Classroom Food Allergy Safety Rules Book includes short reading materials and activities that teach your classroom about food allergy dangers. The document contains a total of 16 pages. Teachers can pick and choose which reading materials and activities are most appropriate for their classroom. Lessons can either stand alone or build upon additional lessons provided in this handy food allergy information book for the classroom. Kids will learn a little about their immune system, antibodies, and even celiac disease. The curriculum is taught from the perspective of a cartoon character named Cilie (pronounced "silly") and is told in a fun and educational way.
We present kids with four simple rules they need to follow to keep your classroom safe from cross contamination and a possible anaphylactic reaction:
Classroom teachers in elementary and middle school can use our materials for their classroom food allergy safety lessons. We supply over 16 pages worth of materials for teachers to pick and choose from. Materials range in difficulty and subject matter to cater to specific classroom needs. Take a look at our curriculum materials and decide for yourself which pages best suite the needs of your students. We also include a convenient teacher's guide with additional allergy information and answer key.
At cilie-yack.org we believe that even at very young ages children are well able to understand food related issues if it is presented to them in a clear and simple manner. When you download the short book you will find various age specific activity sheets to choose from.
Use our curriculum materials to reinforce your class discussions about food allergies. You can also use it as a supplement to any additional educational materials you utilize for your classroom as provided by your school nurse, district, principal, doctor, or the parents of your student with severe food allergies.

Teachers looking for unique kitchen experiments that teach science concepts in a fun way, will love our club curriculum. View our free online cooking class science curriculum for kids. Want to teach your kids about science subjects on a budget? Our cooking class materials do just that. And when you are finished with the experiment, your students will be able to eat their results in most cases. Our curriculum is based on food allergy safety principles. Rather than excluding your food allergic student(s), this curriculum will give you the resources you need to work with every child in your class. Kids will love our simple snack recipes, projects, and crafts that parents and teachers alike have used separately or in conjunction with the experiments. All our recipes are designed for food allergy kids. Our cooking club teaches kids about food allergy safety in a fun way.Download for Free! If you are a classroom teacher or parent looking for a specific food allergy education booklet for kids, check out our Food Allergy Safety Book (pictured at left). Facilitators can use their discretion on whether or not they will be able to use all or some of the materials provided. Just check it out and above all else, have fun with it. We have activities designed for two age groups: 5-7 and 8-11 year-olds. So our kitchen science curriculum is ideal for homeschool families that have one or more siblings with food allergies. So use it how you see fit, free of charge. And if you like what you see, please consider supporting our club. We are a 501 (c)3 non profit organization.
The kitchen science activity sheets are available to help families or cooking clubs manage 'down time' with larger groups of kids. Our club is not meant to feel like a formal classroom. An ideal session is a little rowdy and a lot of fun. All activity sheets are meant to be worked on in groups. We like to see kids sharing answers and discussing what they've learned.
If you are using our Facilitator Guidebook to start your own local cooking club, this meeting will be spent filling out the forms provided in that book. Volunteers will give parents participation forms for each child. During this process, the Sous Club kids will be learning about the importance of a clean kitchen. At this very first meeting they will create an eco-friendly allergy-safe anti-microbial cleaning spray for the kitchen.
