S is for spaghetti…

We have started the alphabet this week with the letter S.  We had so much fun with spaghettti:  touching it, painting with it and using it with a hand eye/fine motor exercise.

Sing with Me

On Top of Spaghetti

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

Small Group

For our small group activities the children took uncooked spaghetti and poked it through the holes of a strainer.  This simple activity was great for working on their fine motor skills.

They loved squishing and squeezing the cooked spaghetti!  The children said it felt like worms!

For our Fun Friday snack time Ms. Lia brought in her snow cone machine and we all had a special treat to end the week.  And a parent brought in cupcakes for us to decorate like adorable puppies!  We had a great week!
