This week we were so busy and had so much fun learning all about the letter Vv and vegetables.
Sing With Me
(To the tune “I’m a Little Teapot”)
Vegetables are plants we eat,
They’re so good, what a treat!
Carrots, beans, and broccolli-
They help us grow so healthily.
There are many colored vegetables-
They are good for you.
Carrots are orange, I’ll eat a few,
Beans are green, I’ll try them too.
We read “The Vegetables We Eat” by Gail Gibbons and “Eating the Alphabet” by Lois Ehlert. The children were fascinated by all of the different vegetables that you can grow and eat. We talked about all of the different ones and which ones were our favorites.
V is for Vegetable
We made vegetable stamps out of a bell pepper, carrot and potato cut in half and dipped in paint.
Our finished art work is on display in the hallway along with our book selection “The Vegetables We Eat” by Gail Gibbons.
V is for Vase
We also painted large letter V’s to make them into flower vases.
We stamped red flowers to fill the vases.
Our colorful and beautiful flower vases are on display in the classroom.
In the Garden
Over spring break the whole school planted a vegetable garden next to the playground. Each child got a turn to dig a hole and plant a few seeds. It will be very exciting to watch our seeds grow!
We were so excited to have a parent donate a veggie tray for a special snack and show and tell. The children were very adventurous and tried each vegetable and decided that carrots and celery were the favorites.
