It's K week! Usually I like to do lesson plans on marsupials (kangaroos/koalas), but wanted to give myself a break and do something else. I get bored, too! :) Here are some of the things we did this week:
Dramatic Play: Restaurant. Menus are made from file folders and collaged with magazine pictures of food. Chef hats, aprons, table cloths, vase w/flower for the table and of course food/dishes.
Sensory Table: Noodles
Books: Lunch! by Denise Fleming; Pancakes, Pancakes by Eric Carle, To Market To Market by Anne Miranda, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie/Pancake and If You Give A Moose A Muffin by Laura Numerof
Language/Literacy/Writing Center: Writing our name in flour or salt, writing kitchen words
Math/Science: Counting on Fries, Cereal Necklace, Measuring Liquids, Cook pudding
Art: Painting with kitchen tools, AWESOME Recipe Collage (stole this idea from the gals over at Irresistible Ideas), Fingerpaint w/ pudding and made some interesting scented watercolor paintings.
|If I would of remembered to bring more utensils to work I would of...sometimes you have to deal with what you have on hand. The kids loved it either way! :)|
|For the recycle recipes I had to look for items that I had a lot of.|
|The children gathered items that were on their recipe card in a small basket, then took them to another table were they mix their ingredients together and came up with:|
|I wish I could show you their faces! MESSY, MESSY, MESSY!!!|
|Root Beer Extract, Vanilla Extract and because I forgot my Peppermint Extract at home, a candy cane. I just broke off a small piece and it "melted" in the paint and it actually made the paint smell!|
|Isn't this just a beautiful piece of work? And, it smells great, too!|
