Students love cooking activities! Not only do they learn how to follow simple directions and basic cooking skills, they feel a sense of pride creating something they can eat and enjoy with others. The children placed their finished pizzas in individual pizza boxes to take home to their families. We hope you enjoy! Mangia, Mangia!
🍓 Strawberry Game 🍓
Strawberry lovers enjoyed a rousing game of "Apple, Banana, STRAWBERRY" in our outdoor classroom. Just like the classic game of "Duck, Duck, Goose", students gathered in a circle, sat on a large strawberry place mat and walked around patting each friend's head naming a different fruit. When they said "Strawberry", the tagged person had to run around the circle in an attempt to catch the friend that tagged them before returning to their spot. Preschoolers were all smiles and giggles. Fun was had by all and everyone received extra practice naming different types of fruit...always learning!
🥕 Nutritionist Field Trip 🍍
Our eager young learners always look forward to our on-site field trips! They put on their SMART START t-shirts and waited patiently for the nutritionist to arrive. they have been learning all about nutrition, healthy foods and making healthy choices, so they are excited to learn even more!
Miss Nina arrived with delicious fruit and the children couldn't wait to see what she had in store for them. They put on their aprons and chef hats and gathered with Miss Nina around the table. She presented the different fruits she brought with her. All took turns washing and cutting up the fruit to prepare for a homemade smoothie. This was the perfect opportunity to learn the importance of washing fruit thoroughly, using safe knife skills and following simple step by step instruction when adding fruit into the blender. They each picked their favorite fruit to add into their smoothie and Miss Nina added in yogurt as well. Time to mix it up in the blender! What a healthy and delicious snack!
Smoothie lovers enjoyed this refreshing treat during circle time in our outdoor classroom while Miss Nina taught them about a variety of different fruits and discussed their color, shape and size, as well as vitamins, fiber and the importance of eating healthy.
