Garden Vegetables 

This week we learned about treasures we find in a garden. 
Carrots, potatoes, beans, peas, tomatoes and more.
The children named the vegetables they saw on the vocabulary cards. I asked them what their favorite vegetable was. The most popular vegetables by vote
 in our classroom were corn and carrots!
All school year we have discussed how healthy vegetables and fruits are for our bodies. We talk about how they make us healthy and strong! Some of the children said they have gardens growing at their home and they help their parents with taking care of the garden.

Carrot Sewing 

The children did a craft for one of their most favorite vegetables. They laced up two carrot shapes and added a green fringe cut top. They colored designs on the front of the carrot and cut the fringe out of the green paper.
After finishing their carrot 🥕 they had a carrot pocket to hide a treasure inside.

Letters on Vines
Matching Upper and Lowercase Letters 

The children enjoyed this really awesome game ! 
The children would pull one lowercase  letter and find it’s uppercase match. After finding it’s  match they would add it to the vine. 
This is so fun and such a good resource I will be keeping this out for a circle time teaching resource. The children will really love this!

Stone Soup
I gathered the children on the rug and read them the Folktale 
“Sone Soup.”
We discussed what the townspeople in the story did and everything they added to make stone soup. 
The children then made their own Stone Soup Collage. They colored the pot shapes and cut out the vegetable pieces. They put their cute collages together. We talked about the importance of working together and helping others.

Potato Race

My children loved this game. I had to modify it since I didn’t have real potatoes. I used a cube and pictures of potatoes 🥔 and the children had so much fun! 
They rolled the dice and if it landed on their letter, they could move their letter potato a space . First one to the end was The Potato Race Winner.

What Do You Like? 
I Can Read Books 

We read our readers together pointing to the words as we read them.
“What do you like?”

“I like corn, “ said the little crow.

Then the children told me what they like in the garden.
They wrote their favorite vegetable.
