Monday Munchies

In our class, every Monday is "Monday Munchies". Mrs N will be bringing in a food each week for us to try. She's hoping that we'll discover some healthy, new foods for our lunchboxes, or to eat at home.

Today, many of us DID discover a new food we liked. It's called broccolini and it's like broccoli, but has smaller stems. It's a great source of Vitamin C, which is important for keeping us healthy. Mrs N was very proud of us because everyone tried it, even if we thought we might not like it.

Some of the adjectives (describing words) we thought of to describe broccolini include: green, smelly, outstanding, delicious, nutritious, healthy and firm.

We also learned a new song about fruit and vegetables. It's from KidsSoup.

(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Apples, pears and oranges too,
fruits are sweet for me and you.

Carrots, peas and broccoli,
vegetables are good for me.

Fruits and vegetables are good for you.
They keep you healthy and are yummy too!

Vertumnus by Guiseppe Arcimboldo

To decorate the front of our "Monday Munchies" scrapbook, we were inspired by the art of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who was an Italian artist who liked to create portraits using fruits and vegetables. Aren't our fruity faces cute?

This morning, we checked out the comments people have left on our blog and we were super-excited to see that not only did some of our mums, dads and grandparents leave messages, but we also got some from Canada and Russia! Thankyou to everyone who has taken the time to comment. We check them every morning in class.

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
