Seedlings Update

September 22, 2015

 

The first few weeks of school are behind us already and our 

seedlings are growing immensely. 

 

They have just started learning how to prepare their own 

snacks and how to compost, which is something that we will 

continue to work on throughout the year. So far, the children 

have assisted in cutting apples and bananas as well as peeling 

clementines. They have shown great focus when cutting the 

fruit and really enjoy helping out. This lesson not only teaches 

the class how to prepare the food we eat, but also gives us the 

opportunity to learn about and try new foods. 

 

We began composting with clementine peels. All of the 

children gathered around and each child brought a piece of 

peel to the compost bucket. Once the clementines were peeled, 

we placed them on our snack time serving tray. After washing 

our hands, they picked out napkins and waited patiently to sing 

our snack time song “For the Golden Corn”. The children have 

really begun to associate the song with the beginning of snack 

time. Snack time has become a sacred time where the children 

sit at a family style table and take pride in knowing they helped 

prepare the food that they eat.
