Preschool Community Helpers: Grocer Theme

age 3-4 community helpers exploring our community grocer preschool Jun 02, 2021

In Week 28 Grocer, your little one(s) will immerse themselves in a grocery related activities.  We touch lightly upon food groups and do a grocery store dramatic play center.  We increase our language reading challenges with CVC middle /a/ and /e/ mystery words which you child will need to read without images.  We also begin reading multiple words with simply phrases.  By the end of the next three weeks your little one will be reading if they haven't started already.  Science includes two experiments and math includes Encouragement Elves M&M jar and activities focusing on weight and additional subtraction practice.  Enjoy!


This week, Kylie learned all about what a grocer does. A little known fact about Kylie is that she is a grocery store connoisseur. We have always lived within walking distance of a market since Kylie was born. So part of our daily rhythm has always been walking to the store to get all the fixings for meals each day. Before kids, I was a serial crisper-drawer-forgetter! Once Kylie came along, a daily walk to the store got us both fresh air, and allowed me to buy just what I needed for each day. No waste! It was a win win!
Kylie thought our theme boarded need a little more spunk, so she added the produce magnets because "that's what you get at the Sobeys."
Sometimes we do our lessons at the table, and sometimes we like to get comfy on the couch! For this wake up, warm up, Kylie read some short CVC phrases.
Because sequins make everything better :)
Our art block this week had us painting with produce! We offer a few suggestions on the art reference page, but our house favorites were: taping paper to the tray, covering grapes in paint, and then shaking the tray to make the paint cover grapes roll all over the paper! And pictured above, using green beans for paint brushes!
We pulled out the kitchen scale for this math activity! Kylie went 2 for 3. She thought a very big strawberry weighed more than a kiwi, but she was not correct.
How have I gone 30 (cough couch) years without knowing this was a thing?!?!?! We regrew lettuce! And it tasted great! Over the course of 2 weeks, we observed our little stub of a romaine heart grow 5 inches!
Double science week! We also experimented with different liquids to see if they would make ice melt.
