Each thematic unit includes a set of focus words, reading games and writing activities. In our Vegetable unit, children can practice reading by playing memory, hide and seek, and dominos. These are different than your typical sight words, rather they are words that will excite your child. Our focus words for this unit are: carrots, corn, eggplant, asparagus, tomato. Included in this packet are handwriting sheets that let them trace the letters for each set of focus words as well as an activity to hep make a grocery list, Sentence Writing, Tracing
Since math and science go hand in hand, we have these lessons together. In this part of the unit, we have lessons that:
grow lettuce seeds
extract pigments from vegetables using chromatography
determine the acid and bases of foods
show capillary action using a celery soak up water
We have learned that children need to express themselves creatively. For this reason, each thematic unit includes Creative Arts activities. These activities include art, music, and dramatic play. Here we have you make vegetable stamps and we go over some favorite vegetable songs with hand motions. These creative arts activities will keep your child entertained and learning for hours.

Here we go over vegetables from all over the world and what their nutritional value is.
