Vegetable Teaching Picture For Younger Toddler Fall Theme Lesson Plans

Teaching Picture: Veggies

On the download page you will find the printable pages and print out today’s picture. Tape the picture to the wall in a location where the toddlers can see it.

As you show the picture to children, talk about the picture, tell the children about the picture. Talking to the toddlers is a good way for them to get started on using their own language skills. The more words a toddler hears the more he learns, even if he/she is not talking yet, they are listening and learning and all of a sudden they will be talking.

Refer to the language development section below for a few suggestions on things to talk about with toddlers about the picture, the language development will give you suggestion on things to talk about or it will show an activity, rhyme or story and then continue talking to the children about the picture, using your own words.

Keep in Mind: Any and all printed material is not safe for toddlers. So do not give any printouts to the children unless you are supervising them. These are for you to hold up or attach to the wall.
Look at your toddlers and in a soothing voice talk about the picture.

Today's Music: Folk Music

Play folk music for the children today.

Please Note: If you don't have any folk music you can check at your local library and try to borrow some folk music to play for the toddlers, if they do not have folk music, try to select some different types of music to play for the children, such as; blues, classical, country, soft rock, etc. Play the music softly throughout the day in the background and it would be nice to play it quietly during naptime also to help the children settle down to go to sleep and keep them sleeping with a soft back ground noise.

Language Development: Veggie Book (Included) Print Out
Print out the veggie book and read it to the children.

You will need:

Card stock paper (available from Wal-Mart)
Clear Contact Paper
Yarn or string
3 Hole Punch

Teacher will need to print out the veggie book onto card stock paper. Then cover the pages with clear contact paper to make them durable. Next, teacher will need to 3 hole punch down the side and then tie the pages together with yarn and tie securely.

Teacher will read the book to the children and show them the pictures.

Songs/Finger Rhymes: This Is The Way We Drop The Veggies
Tune to: Here we go round the mulberry bush

This is the way we drop the veggies, drop the veggies,
This is the way we drop the veggies,
Early this fall morning.

This is the way we pick the veggies,
Pick the veggies, pick the veggies,
This is the way we pick the veggies,
Early this fall morning.

Sing the song above and as you sing the song, drop some plastic toy veggies about the room and then as you sing this is the way we pick the veggies, encourage the children to help you pick up the veggies.

Safety Note: Make sure all the plastic veggies are sturdy and safe for the toddlers to play with, make sure they are not too small to choke on.

row of veggies activity for young toddlers during fall theme lesson plans.

Group Activity: Drop the veggies

You will need:
Plastic toy veggies
Brown Construction Paper
Clear Contact Paper
Hot Glue Gun (teacher only)
Large Jar Covers

You will need a few sheets of brown construction paper and cover these with clear contact paper and then teacher will need to cut the brown construction paper lengthwise to make two strips. (Use glue gun when children are not present)Then teacher will need to hot glue some large jar covers down the strips of paper. The contact paper is slippery so make sure you lay these against the wall so the children do not slip on them.

Lay plastic toy veggies across the jar covers that are hot glued onto the contact paper in rows like in a garden and show the children how to pick the veggies up. Tell the children its harvest time and we need to pick the veggies. Then show the children how to re-plant the garden, by placing the veggies back into the covers.

Recite the poem below with the children while picking the veggies.

1, 2, 3 pick veggies with me
1, 2, 3, pick veggies with me and you will see how fun it can be.

Safety Note: Make sure that none of the veggies are too small that the children could choke on them, always check with a choke tube. Make sure when the activity is over to put the contact paper with the jar lids away.

carrot coloring page for young toddlers.

Art/Sensory Activity: Carrot

You will need:
Carrot Print out
Thick Orange Crayons
Packaging Tape

Directions: Have the children color their carrot picture with non toxic thick orange crayons. Place packaging tape securely around the crayon, leave the top part for coloring, this will help the crayons not to break.

Please Note: Make sure the children do not put the art materials into their mouths. If they do, try to direct their attention onto their art activity and if they continue to put the art materials in their mouth, try to offer them something they can chew on, such as a teething ring. If this doesn?t work you may need to remove the item that they are putting in their mouth and substitute something safer for them to use or remove them from the area and try again later.

Taking Pictures Home: Make sure parents know that the pictures are not toys; they are to be hung up as decorations or put away as memories not given to the children to play with as they could choke on the small pieces of paper if not being watched.

Play Time: Cooking Veggies

You will need:
Small toy pots
Child safe spoons
Plastic toy veggies

Provide the children with some small toy pots or real ones with adult supervision and some child safe spoons and plastic veggies to pretend to cook.

To make it more fun offer them some sturdy plastic toy dishes to put the veggies onto.

Egg carton clothespin fine motor activity for young toddlers.

Learning Activity: Peg Board Fun

Fun fine motor activty for young children. Show the children how to push the wooden clothespins into the egg carton and take them back out, like picking carrots from the garden.

This activity needs to be supervised at all times!

You will need an egg carton per child. Teacher will turn the egg cartons over and cut a hole into the bottom of each egg cup, and then carefully turn the scissors in a circle inside each hole to widen it. Then you will need some old fashioned clothespins and show them how to stick the clothespins into the hole in the bottom of the egg carton, supervise at all time, when this activity is done, remove the egg carton, and the clothespins.

Corn, peas and carrots rhyme for young children learning about vegetables.

Nursery Rhymes: I like veggies
Tune to: Are You Sleeping

I like corn, I like corn.
Do you too? Do you too?

I like peas and carrots, I like peas and carrots.
How about you? How about you?

Print out the corn, peas and carrots print out and point to the foods as you sing the song.

Please Note: Young toddlers enjoy being read to and thrive and learn from listening to stories, songs, poetry and nursery rhymes. So please read and sing a lot to the children in your care!

Younger Toddler Curriculum Program

Our new younger toddler curriculum for children ages 12 to 18 months. We have added a lot of "hands on" fun activities that involve some "Heuristic Play Materials" such as water bottles, metal cans, metal or plastic covers, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and other every day materials.

What is heuristic play? Heuristic comes from a Greek word eurisko "meaning to discover", heuristic play was developed about 30 years ago by Educational Psychologists, Elinor Goldschmeid. Heuristic play offers toddlers different types of textures and items for the toddlers to explore to help them develop their senses; touch, smell, hearing, sight and taste. Some of the items that they would include for the toddlers to play with would be plastic jars, plastic jar covers, wooden spoons, egg cartons, hair rollers, shower curtain rings, napkin holders and many other items.

What About Sharing? Toddlers don't always like to share and the types of items we try to use in our curriculum are mostly items that are very easy to "provide a lot of them" so there are plenty of items to go around and less stress to the toddlers "feeling they need to share". One theory behind heuristic play is that you "provide a lot of materials" and only leave the materials down for a short time while the children are being "observed" playing with the items and the teachers let them play with the materials; however they want, as long as they are not hurting themselves or anyone else. We decided to use some of these "types of items" in our curriculum and to turn them into "learning activities" this way they are playing with the items and learning with them too! In our toddler curriculum we have tried to incorporate some heuristic play items with a touch of Montessori ideas and some preschool themes (changed for toddlers) to make our "hands on learning curriculum."

What Are Sensory Activities We have tried to provide a lot of sensory activities which include touching different textures such as fake fur, velour, corduroy, felt, and other types of textures along with handling different types of items such as metal cans (no sharp edges), jar covers, hair rollers, and many other items along with some water play, sand play, plus some glue and paint activities, we have included glue and paint recipes which are basically just water and flour, that way if the children put the glue or paint, that you make, into their mouths, which they will, it’s a safer alternative than them putting "real glue and paint" in their mouths, with all the chemicals in it.

Learning Through Play As you probably know a lot of "Toddler Curriculums" are not really suitable for toddlers. Most of the actives are too hard for the toddlers to actually master. We know that not all toddlers can do what every other toddler can do, so we have tried to make our activities as "toddler friendly" as possible for toddlers 12 to 18 months. But you may find some of the learning activities can’t be mastered by all the toddlers, don't worry, they should still be able to "play with the materials and they are learning through play" toddlers actually learn a lot from playing, through play they can learn a lot of new skills that they will use now and in the future.By using our curriculum they will be exposed to a lot of new ideas, sensory items to touch and lots of songs and rhymes to help to stimulate and encourage the toddlers to explore their environment.

Hand On Learning Program Our toddler curriculum was designed to introduce toddlers to a variety of play materials where they can learn and grow and discover the world around them. We try to provide the toddlers in our care with a fun activity based "hands on learning program" where the younger toddlers will learn by using their "five senses" by seeing pictures, by handling the learning materials, hearing songs and stories and the older toddlers will actually start learning a few basic shapes and colors through the songs, rhymes and stories and hands on learning activities that also include simple crafts such as coloring with chunky crayons or side walk chalk, painting and using glue with our home made paint and glue recipes which is basically flour and water so if they "taste it" and they will, it won't hurt them.

Hands On Activities Our new younger toddler curriculum has a group time, art/sensory time, play time,learning time along withe some cute songs and rhymes to capture the toddlers attention plus help them to learn, they can learn a lot through our toddler program. These activities are not only to entertain the children but to help them learn through sensory play and lots of fun "hands on" activities.

Enjoy the activities with your group. We have worked very hard on getting the curriculum put together. We hope you enjoy the activities with your toddlers. We hope your toddler group has as much fun with these activities as our toddlers do.
