Food Glorious Food!

This week, we worked on literacy and language skills around the topic of food. We played food matching and identifying games- look at the food picture and match it to your dinner plate (potato, waffles, ham, chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms, chips, fish etc.) Then when the plate was full we fed the “boy” (mouth opens into box) specific items of food on request. We listened to songs about fruits and vegetables- The singing walrus songs on You Tube, to build our vocabulary on foods. We were encouraged to say “I have mushrooms, I have chips” when matching food cards to their plates. The game also taught us turn taking skills, waiting to feed the hungry boy! As well as that, we took turns lacing fruits, bananas, oranges, apples, pears and plums. Plus, we even made a pretend pizza, yum! 🙂
