I have 2 classes of 18 4-year-old's motivated to learn about everything! Primarily English language learners who qualify for free lunch, my students have loving, supportive families. Despite limited resources, they generously donate food items for our weekly 'cooking' activities. My students enjoy the opportunity to make their own snacks. They are also more willing to try new foods when presented in a fun, hands-on project with their classmates. For math, we taste carrots, cabbage, radishes, & celery & post our preferences on the "Which Bunny Vegetable is Your Favorite?" graph. We incorporate math & language skills when preparing a recipe like Cinnamon Bear Toast while reciting the poem "Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear." We obviously can't do these things every day, so food/nutrition-related games, activities, & literature that reinforce math, language, & science skills are high-interest, major motivators for my students!
