The boredom bags you find in my Teachers Pay Teachers store go far beyond busting boredom but do a clever job of providing learning opportunities disguised as fun.
Your child will:
+ design menu cards with his/her artistic flair
+ create a weekly lunch menu
+ develop food vocabulary
+ practice decision making
+ explore nutrition
+ develop real-life skills of meal planning
This activity is great for independent work or collaborative engagement. The kit includes a variety of suggestions for extending the activity both for pre-readers and readers.
Use this activity as a rotating center in your classroom OR to engage a younger sibling in independent, creative play while you provide direct instruction to their older sibling.
