Preschool Interactive: Let's eat!

  • Program Goals
    • Model early literacy skills through stories and art
    • Offer a program at a new time (early afternoon) to meet the needs of 4K students
    • Learn about healthy food choices
    • Attendance: 15
  • Evaluation
    • 2-25-15
      • Attendance: 8
      • Feedback/Connections: All new families! One I had met before, but not in storytime. They enjoyed the stories even though it was a small group and what I had planned was older.
      • Notes: I still need to make a flannelboard for Edible Alphabet. Even the younger kids liked it - they love finding the ladybugs in the pictures.
    • 2-20-13
      • Attendance: 11
      • Notes: We read all our stories, but left out all the songs except Five Fat Peas and the kids weren't really interested in that. I need a bigger audience to get them involved in movement.
    • 2-15-12
      • Attendance: 25
      • Notes: I wanted a flannel to go with Edible Alphabet, but didn't have time to make it. I threw in Jeremy Tankard's Me Hungry after Edible and cut "the animals on the farm". Boots was a very...energetic song and the kids were pretty relaxed. They loved all the stories, especially Me Hungry and Wild Boars! 

Dancing time and name tags: "Boots" by Laurie Berkner from Victor Vito

Opening name song: The more we get together

Long story: Wild boars cook by Meg Rosoff

Movement: Five fat peas

Nonfiction: Edible Alphabet by Carol Watterson

Movement: Jumping Beans

Early Literacy Aside: We're going to practice our early literacy skills by reading a rhyming story next! Everyone gets to help out on the refrain, "Monsters don't eat broccoli!"

Short story: Monsters don't eat broccoli by Barbara Hicks

Short story: Me Hungry by Jeremy Tankard

Closing song: Sunny Day

Process art: Cookbook Scrapbook

Prep: Scissors, glue, magazines, recycled cardstock, crayons, markers, staplers

Kids cut out pictures of food and ingredients or people eating. They can staple their pages together into a book and write (with their caregivers' help) on them.
