  Math Activities

 

Place 5-7 (3 or 4 for a 2 year old class) pieces of fruit or vegetables on the flannelboard.   Ask the children which is the largest.   As they come to a consensus, remove the largest fruit or veggie.   Then say, “Now...which one is the largest?”   Repeat until only one item remains.

Taste and Choose

by Robin Suitt

 

As always, when working with food and children make sure no children are allergic to the foods you will be tasting.

 

Introduce children to different foods, by allowing them to taste the fruit or vegetable.   Gather your tasting items together.   Place the coordination food felts on the flannelboard.   As the children taste the mystery food they must guess what food on the flannelboard they are eating.   Such as:

 

Banana = Banana Pudding

Pineapple = Canned Pineapple Chunks

Carrots = Baby carrot cake muffins

Pumpkin = Pie or cookies

Orange = OJ

Grapes = Grape Jelly on a cracker

Apple = Applesauce

Lemon = Lemonade

Beets = Canned shredded pickled beets

                (careful they can stain)

Potato = Potato chips,   mashed potatoes or French fries

 

======================================

 

Find the Food

by Robin Suitt

Ages 4-6

 

Find a vegetable or fruit that starts with the letter...“P”

                (pineapple, pumpkin, peas, pepper, plum,                                        potato, pear)

A = avocado, apricot, apple

B = beet, beans, bell pepper, banana

C = celery, corn, carrots, cherry

E = eggplant

F = fig

G = grapefruit, grapes,

L = lettuce, lemon

M = mushrooms, mango

N = nuts

O = orange, onion

R = radish

S = strawberry

T = tomato, turnip

W = watermelon

 

======================================

Juice it Up!

Bring in a juicer and make your own juices!   See how creative you can get!   Apple juice base works best.   Place items on the juicer on the flannelboard.   Enjoy!

Let’s Make a Salad!

 

Place either the fruit or the vegetables on the flannelboard and ask the children, “What would you add to our salad?”   The student may go to the board and pull off one ingredient and place it in the bowl, which you have provided at the base of the flannelboard.   Follow with making you own real salad to eat !

Poem

What Color do I See?

 

See, see, see,

What color do I see?

Yellow corn, big brown potatoes,

Bright green lettuce!   Yum, yum, good!

Out in the Garden

by Jean Warren

adapted by Robin Suitt

 

Sung to:   “Down by the Station”

 

Out in the garden early in the morning,

See the red tomatoes all in a row.

See the happy farmer coming out to pick them.

Pick, pick, pick, pick, off (he/she) goes.

 

Each verse the same except replace “red tomatoes”

...“little green peas”

...”orange carrots”

...”yellow corn cobs”

...”purple beets”

 

======================================

 

I’m a Big Red Tomato

 

Sung to:   “Little White Duck”

 

I’m a big red tomato

Growing on the vine’

A big red tomato

Looking oh, so fine.

Now you can make good things with me -

Soup, juice, pizza, to name just three.

I’m a big red tomato

Growing on the vine.

Grow, grow, grow.

Which Fruit is Missing

by Robin Suitt

 

Place felt pieces onto the flannelboard.   Try 3-4 pieces   for 2-3 year olds, and 5-6 items for 3-4 year olds.   Ask children to close their eyes.   Remove one item, and ask if they can guess which item if missing.   You can play this game with fruit, veggies, phonics items, farm pieces or counting set.   When finished with the activity, try leaving out the flannelboard for free play.   The children will enjoy playing the game their own way.
