Today I made a fruit and vegetable printable for you. This printable can be used as part of a food/healthy food or grocery unit in a classroom or tot school. The printable can be used in many ways at home as well. I love to think of different ways that resources can be used. Here are several ways that you can use this fruit and vegetable printable.
Grocery Store Scavenger Hunt:
Place the printable list of fruits and vegetables on a clip board. Take it, along with a pencil or crayon, to the grocery store. While you are shopping, your kiddo can hunt for the fruits and vegetables on the list and place an X on the foods as they are found. How many can he or she find? Which foods have he or she tasted?
Motivation to Try New Foods:
Look through the list with your child. How many of the foods has he or she tried? Ask your child to select a new fruit or vegetable from the list to try. Your kiddo can even write a grocery list.
Place a laminated fruits and vegetable printable list in your writing center. Kids can practice writing the names of the foods.
Make two copies of the printable and laminate them for durability. Cut out one set of food squares and place them in a pile. Kids can select a square from the pile, name the food on the square, and place the square on the fruit or vegetable on the printable sheet. Cut out both sets of squares and kids can play a memory match game.
Initial Sound Matching:
Print one of the printables and cut out the fruit and vegetable squares. Ask kids to find the foods that start with the same letters or find foods that start with the first letter of their name.
Add a laminated fruit and vegetable printable to your dramatic play kitchen. Kids can select a toy food from the play kitchen and check to see if it is on the grid. Kids can also use the printable to create a shopping list.
