Flannel Friday: Vegetables

Flannel Friday: Vegetables

This weeks Flannel Friday was part of my Vegetable Storytime.Vegetable Storytime Flannel Friday | Miss Meg's Storytime

kind of used the song from PreSchool Alphabet but really adapted and changed it to fit with my group. I handed out one veggie to each kid in the group (I usually have about 10 in attendance) and when their veggie was called they came and put it in the bucket and stirred it.  This was the song we sang:
Stir it, Stir it
Until it’s hot!
Come put the _____
in the pot!

On my outreach visits I didn’t bring the bucket and we just used the plastic baggie instead and they shook it up.


It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in FF and it is good to be back!

Flannel Friday this week is hosted by Lisa at Libraryland.

 

Vegetable Storytime

Vegetable Storytime | MIss Meg's Storytime

Last weeks theme for story time was vegetable’s!  This was an especially fun one for me to plan because my partner and I are part of a farm share this summer/fall and I have been trying so many new vegetables that we may not have ever tried just going to the grocery store (I can now confidently say I am not a big fan of beets but will eat swiss chard any day)… What better way to share my new knowledge than with the little ones at preschool storytime?!

I started storytime by asking the kids their favorite veggies… The most popular answers were carrots and corn!

Vegetable Songs & Rhymes

Vegetables
source
tune:Mary Had a Little Lamb

We are pumpkins, big and round
Big and round, big and round
We are pumpkins, big and round
Seated on the ground.

We are string beans, green and fine…..
Growing on a vine.
We are onions, round and white….
We make soup taste right.
We are carrots, orange and long…
Help us sing our song.
We are cabbage, green or red….
See our funny head.
We are corn stalks, tall and straight….
Don’t we just taste great.

Every week we have to do Icky Sticky Bubble Gum & The Goldfish Song. I actually attempted to only do one of them this last week and had a parent remind me that we hadn’t done Icky Sticky Bubble Gum yet.

We did also have an extension activity that I will post about later this week as part of Flannel Friday.

Vegetable Craft

It was a no-brainer for my to do vegetable stamping this week!  It wasn’t as great and fancy of a finished product as last weeks painting but the process was really great and it prompted a lot of discussions about colors and vegetables with the caregivers and children. I had mushrooms, celery, and potatoes available.  I cut shapes into some of the potatoes.

Also, I mentioned that I was doing a vegetable storytime to a coworker and she made this table runner (featured on the top image in this post)!  How awesome is that!? <3 <3
