Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Chicka Chicka 123 this week.  Since the alphabet climbs a coconut tree, we did activities that involved coconuts.  We actually examined a coconut, sampled coconut milk, and tasted fresh coconut.  The children did not like the fresh coconut or coconut milk.

We put a piece of paper on the sidewalk and then dipped small plastic bowling balls (pretend coconuts) in paint and rolled them down the sidewalk to paint.  We had some unusual murals when the children were finished.  While waiting our turn to paint, we used chalk on the sidewalk, played hopscotch, and drew on a piece of paper.

Vegetable Garden a Huge Success

Our vegetable (container) garden was a big success.  The children harvested their vegetables, cleaned them, and made a large salad.  Everything that you see in this picture came from their garden except for the tomatoes.  I had to purchase those since they aren't ready yet.  Most of the children had seconds on salad because they said it tasted so good.  I overheard two of the girls discussing how healthy the salad was for them.
