JUNE

This month we will be working on the food pyramid, we will start with the unity of food and nutrition, with that we will learn the different types of food that we have fruits and vegetables, meat, wheat and dairy, as well as sweets.

These foods give us fiber, vitamins, and essential minerals for our growth. We will learn how to eat well and balance out the meals we have through out the day, as well as realize how important breakfast, lunch, and dinner are while we learn about good manners in the table.

We will be talking about good eating habits and the precautions we have to have with our body so it functions well being healthy and free from viruses!

We will see that we all have a different weight and size, and what to do to  stay in shape. We will share how things that are NOT HEALTHY such as smoking, abusing the sun, or the food, and not exercising  are damaging to us.

We will also understand and learn that the preparation of food is very fun and exciting with a project where we will have a fabric to make a healthy and nutritional granola . We will prepare the items from the beginning and go through the entire process of making it to packing it, then in art class we will make a store, give the product a name and an image as it was our very own creation. At the end of the month we will invite the parents to buy our healthy gourmet products!

These are some of the activities we will have during the month where you can participate and help me in!

Rhyme of the Month

Ay que vaca tan salada
tolon tolon, tolon tolon.
