foodie stories for kids

The Stinky Cheese Man costume would make ANY storytime better.

Wanted to share my FOOD themed Family Storytime lesson plan for my from some weeks back; this was by far everyone's favorite (including mine).

Music/Movement:
“Shake Your Sillies Out,” #13, Raffi’s More Singable Songs

Rhyme/Action: “Peanut Butter,” Rhyme w/ train whistle x2
A peanut sat on a railway track
His heart was all a flutter
Around the bend came number ten
Oops! peanut butter.

Rhyme/Action: “Pea Soup” Acted out w/green pom poms and pot
*I added the poms poms as the rhyme went on and when we got to the line, "And all the peas jumed out of the pot," I tossed the "peas" out of the pot with a ladle. THE KIDS LOVED IT! They also loved picking up the "peas" and putting them back into the pot for me.
PEA SOUP:

One little pea jumped into the pot,
and waited for the soup to get hot.

Two little peas jumped into the pot,
and waited for the soup to get hot.

Three little peas jumped into the pot,
and waited for the soup to get hot.

Four little peas jumped into the pot,
and waited for the soup to get hot.

Five little peas jumped into the pot,
and waited for the soup to get hot.

Finally the soup got so very hot,
All the little peas jumped out of the pot!

BOOK 1: Wild Boars Cook, Meg Rosoff
