🌈 ABC Placemat 🌈
I’ve talked about incorporating language and communication during meals, snacks, and cooking. This placemat can encourage just that!
Here are a few ideas:
🍉 Fruits: What are the different fruits you see? What other fruits can you name?
🥕 Vegetables: What are the different vegetables you see? What other vegetables can you name?
🎨 Color naming and identification.
🔤 Letter names and letter sounds: Naming foods that begin with that letter.
🔢 Counting fruits/vegetables
📝 Come up with a sentence starting with the letter you name. Come up with a sentence using the fruit or vegetable you name. Describe the fruit or vegetable.
👇🏻Finger tracing the letters.
Just talking about foods is a great way to start developing positivity towards foods! 🌈
Last, but not least, it can be a good excuse to head to Target 🎯 😉
