The Nutrition Literacy and Math theme has been created to assist you in meeting your common core curriculum outcomes.


The unit consists of:

Two emergent readers (one professionally illustrated) offered in both color and blank and white. These readers introduce key reading concepts and strategies, beginning letter sounds and common sight words that can be used for shared and guided reading.

Literacy Centers
➢ “Cruising Around the Food Pyramid”, in this game a player rolls a die and moves that many spaces around the food pyramid. They must identify and match the letter they landed on.
➢ “Initial Consonant Food Game” players draw a food card and determine the initial letter sound heard, print or mark off the correct letter on the sheets provided.
➢ “Roll A Rhyme Food Game”, players roll a die and move around the food track and must determine which picture rhymes with the one landed on
➢ “Spin A Sight Word Game” players would spin a top, say or print the sight word that they landed on.
➢ Food picture cards both in color, black and white for each food group is provided for the students to sort.

The focus in this theme is on the outcomes outlined below related to the Common Core Standards Outcomes.
