We continued our Nutrition Unit by reading Protein, by Valerie Bodden. Our class had a nutritious breakfast this week. We made scrambled eggs, toast, and drank orange juice. We ate 4 out of the 5 food groups for breakfast that day! Protein and dairy group (milk in the scrambled eggs), Fruit group (orange juice) and grain group (toast).
We also had a discussion about good dental care after reading Peppa Pig's Trip to the Dentist by, Scholastic Inc, Bear's Loose Tooth by Karma Wilson, Sugarbug Doug by Dr. Ben Magleby, Clarabella's Teeth by An Vrombaut, and Dentists by Quinn M. Arnold. For snack, the children made their own teeth out of apples and soy butter. The children spread soy butter (from our protein group) onto apple slices and finally added cubes of apples, (from the fruit group). They put it all together and voila! a set of teeth!
We learned a new tooth brushing song (Melody of Row, Row, Row, Your Boat):
"Brush, brush your teeth, gently up and down,
Visit your dentist twice a year and you won't have a frown."
We also took a picture of each child's teeth and put then up on our class bulletin board. Can you guess which is your child's teeth?
In music class, the children practiced rest position and holding position of the foam violins. After, they played the rhythm sticks while singing "Tide-O and Humpty Dumpty."
On Friday, we concluded our nutrition unit by exercising and learning yoga positions. The children did a phenomenal job!
Denise taught the children many yoga positions and Deb taught the children several aerobic moves. We have a very active group!
Please pack eating utensils in your child's lunch and or afternoon snack.
We will be having our parent-teacher conferences coming up this Wednesday, May 22nd.
Have a fun weekend,
Love, Ms. Bonne & Ms. Denise
