Table of contents for V is for Vegetables
It has been a long time since we’ve shared a theme series, and I still have a couple to share from last year. Now that we are getting back into our school routine I am going to pick up where we left off after our U is for Underground Animals series.
For the letter V we learned all about vegetables. To kick off the week I set up an invitation to play with vegetables. The kids were SO excited to discover this on Monday morning. They chose to spend almost all of their free time playing with this vegetable stand throughout the week.
To set up the stand I gathered a fresh produce, a large cardboard box, a table cloth, one of our toy bin organizers, and a few store related accessories we had around the house.
The real novelty here was the fresh produce. The kids were so excited to have real food to touch and play with, and it led to so many wonderful conversations and discoveries about vegetables throughout the week. As we cooked and prepared snacks we also selected produce from the vegetable stand so that it did not go to waste.
With a little supervision, this was an activity that the toddlers and preschoolers could enjoy together. Little Buddy and Big Buddy loved to shop and feel the vegetables.
Lovey took her job as store clerk very seriously. She was quite professional and loved helping her customers choose the right vegetables.
Next week I’ll be back to share some of the learning activities we did to go along with our vegetable stand.
