Vegetables! All week long!
The children are having fun learning the names in French. Some of them are easier to remember such as: carotte, céleri, salade. Some are long: pomme de terre. They had a hard time with the literal translation : apples of the ground. What?… 🙂
One munchkin asked:” why can’t they call it fries?”
Just like we did with the fruit, we observed, smelled, touched and ate the vegetables.
We organized them by color and by size.
Thank you for bringing the items needed. You are the best!
Next week we will be cooking our friendship soup!

This week we began our new theme: the vegetable.
We had to make the difference between fruit and vegetable. We talked about the way they grow, we discovered that sometimes we eat the roots, sometimes the leaves…
On Tuesday we tasted carrot and celery. The teacher was very surprised because many of us liked celery a lot and we asked for some more. Of course we drew them as well.
Then we tasted broccoli and pepper. The teacher showed us garlic, onion and leeks as well. But of course we didn’t taste them. The garlic smelled awful: we made a funny face when we smelled it. The entire school smelled of it!!!!
We continued our work on the syllables. We used the name of the vegetable. For example: oi-nion 2 claps, 2 syllables.
We sang the songs ‘j’ aime les fruits’ and ‘tous les légumes’. Our teacher was very proud because we did it pretty well.
As we are wonderful painters, we are allowed now to paint our own paintings and we like it a lot.
