There are allot of activities this week. It is up to you if you want to do them all or chose your favourite.
I have seen your fabulous photos of the children cooking at home. So this week i would like you little chefs to make a vegetable soup with the family.
Giglets: Book: Eating Vegetables
Talk to you children about how to stay fit and healthy and why it is important.
Task: Explore vegetables with your senses. What can you see inside the vegetables? Where do your vegetables grow? Can you make a Mr potato head with your vegetables? Can you print your vegetables? I would love to see your fabulous creations.
Task: Make soup. May be you would like to write a list of ingredients or draw the vegetables you like in your soup and cut them out. Can you help peel some vegetables? Happy Cooking!
Maths: Measure and weighing
Task: Make play dough following the play dough recipe.
This week we are learning about measure. I would love your children to make their own super worms. Can they roll five worms, of different lengths. Then measure them using objects around the house. The objects need to be the same size. Oxo cubes, blocks or even small cars. Line the objects underneath the worms, making sure you start at the beginning of the worm. Count the objects together. Write a number on paper or use a flash card and put it next to each worm. If you like you can decorate your worms using sequences, jewels or buttons, if you want.
Questions to ask your children,
Which worm is the longest?
Which worm is the shortest?
How do you know?
Can you order the worms, biggest to smallest?
Can you together collect different objects around the house and measure them. Find out how long or short they are. If you want you can use the objects to find out which weighs the heaviest and lightest. Using a weighing scale.
How to make a weighing scale
1 clothes hanger
2 paper cups or 2 beach buckets (same size)
Make 2 holes in the paper cup.
Tie the string through the holes in the cup to make handles.
Hang the cup or bucket each side of the hanger, using the handles.
