In this article EduKitchen & The ETI Academy offers a look at important skills and strategies to help students build and maintain “recipes” for success in learning to make how we learn easy and enjoyable.
Recipes in the kitchen need essential ingredients to make every part of the meal something to remember.
There are important steps to follow through in the recipe that leads to the ultimate satisfaction of the meal we are about to enjoy.
But did you stop to think that a food recipe also includes learning skills that teach us language, math, and science?
Build Your Recipe for Success in Learning
EduKitchen & the ETI Academy believe that anyone, with the right skills, or ingredients (see our list below), can develop general learning strategies that when used correctly, can create recipes for success for their educational and future goals.
When it comes to studying, most students find it difficult to put together a strategy that helps them succeed with learning.
But if we keep these important life skills in mind, we are on our way to building strategies that can lead to success with learning goals every time!
We have put together a “recipes for learning” guide that parents and children can use today!
Through our videos and resources we share important connections between what life can teach us, like being organized in the kitchen, and show how it benefits us in the classroom. Take a look at our videos and resources below.

Improving cooking skills will also have a liberating effect on how children build their confidence because it helps by unlocking their potential to explore and generate innovative ideas.
When children are encouraged to build recipes in the kitchen, they develop the ability to better understand information, look at things differently, and make connections between seemingly unrelated concepts.
Let’s talk about dinnerware and learning.
Ahisma home products are made of stainless steel, but their colorful designs help keep children’s attention where it should be when eating – on the food! By having a colorfully designed plate, children can begin to explore the creative side in choosing which food to eat first!
The same focus can be applied when building their attention towards learning. Having a colorful planner ready to go can help with their success towrds learning.

Recognize The 7 Must Have Skills
Let us begin with recognizing the seven must have skills that build our recipes.
(1) Begin with enthusiasm – It is in all of us, we just have to recognize it’s potential. We also need to recognize that we can do it, we just need to believe that we can, and nobody can tell you otherwise!
(2) Add confidence – believe that nothing can stand in your way, and that you can, and you will learn the right way!
(3) Sprinkle with organization –where is your happy place for studying – use social media with caution!
IV. Time Management
(4) Include some time management – are you an early bird or night owl – what time are you most productive!
V. Problem Solving Skills
(5) Fold in your problem solving skills – recognize what you know, what you need to find, and how you solve that need!
VI. Communication Skills
(6) Season well with communication – allow yourself to ask questions when you don’t understand or are able to share what you know with others! Positive words only!
(7) Blend the previous ingredients with patience – “Rome wasn’t built in a day” is the quote that tells us that patience in allowing for mistakes as you learn will help you grow in learning and understanding
Our mindset is also important; the last three ingredients on the list; consistency, goals, and positive outlooks help build a positive mindset for learning.
We have put these seven skills in a free resource to download or to share with others.
Now that you have created your recipes for learning, think about how you learn, and why it is so important.
How We Learn Is Important
If we change the focus of our learning from WHAT we are learning to HOW we will learn the material, it will allow us to understand and believe more as to WHY we need to learn the material.

Along with how you learn, it is also important to consider how humor can make learning so much more fun and interesting.
Consider Adding a Little Laughter To The List
Consider adding a little laughter in with all the seriousness of creating such recipes for learning.
When we learn to see the humor in how sometimes things don’t go as expected, or the unintended consequences of doing (or not doing) things, then we make our day just a little bit brighter by taking away some of the anxieties we associate with learning or life!
Now put these ideas all together and you have a recipe for success in learning!

And if for nothing else, creating recipes for learning can help make us become better at problem solving – which we need to recognize is a very important life skill. Your brain will thank you for it!
Think about how many problems you solve in one day!
