Today we read stories about food!! We first read How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food by Jane Yolen, about the good and bad eating habits a dinosaur might have. Next, we read I Really Like Slop! an Elephant and Piggie book by Mo Willems. In it, Piggie convinces Elephant to try some of his favorite food, slop. You can imagine what happens!! We finished the hour with Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper, about three woodland friend who share the soup-making experience and what happens when one of them wants a different role.
Then we used all sort of materials and craft items to build a representation of our favorite meal on a paper plate. See the plate with spaghetti, marshmallows, and peas - and the pizza with cheese and pepperoni? YUM!
