This past week our theme was “Fun with Food.” We read the big book, Jamberry.
We tasted various berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries) and placed a check mark on a chart if we liked the berries.
We determined that the same number of people liked strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
Our class liked blueberries the least.
We played with plastic fruit, boats, boys, and bears at the water table.
It was a fun way to build upon our comprehension of the story
and to expand our pretend play skills.
We also listened to the story of The LittLe Read Hen, retold using props from our classroom.
We learned about Habit #3 from the Leader in Me.
The story reinforced that it is good to “Put First Things First” /Work first, then play.
We also recalled what we had previously learned about friendship: Friends help each other.
We read the book, Peanut butter and Jelly, and then our teachers made us into the world’s largest peanut butter and jelly sandwich! It was a great sensory experience.
We expanded this activity by making peanut butter and jelly crackers.
First, we spread peanut butter on a cracker.
Then we spread jelly on a cracker…
The last thing that we did was eat our creations.
This was a great activity allowing us to practice fine motor/self-care skills, follow directions, and sequence what comes first, second, and third…
