Teachers should read up on the history and stages of emergent writing and reading to get a better idea of what to expect from their students. By providing developmentally appropriate experiences, materials and environments, teachers can encourage early literacy skills and behaviors to flourish and develop into conventional reading and writing down the road.
The focus on this lesson is creating a healthy lunch box. I have included the lesson plan below as long as a fantastic pack of resources. The lesson plan begins with a lesson on the purposes of food so carbohydrates for fuel, proteins for building muscles, etc. The lesson then moves on to helping the teacher to prepare a healthy lunch box, looking at a balanced diet and creating balanced lunch menu, including drink.
A lot of the resources used in this lesson plan are from Twinkl. I recommend signing up for their premium content. There are some amazing online resources for the children to use on computers or on the interactive white board related to healthy eating.
Make a Balance Plate This game is a sorting game where the children take the pieces of food and drink and put these items into their food group on the plate. Click here to load the game. A Healthy Lunchbox Children are presented with a choice of lunch box and then a choice of food.
Unmuddle the Meals This game takes the different elements of a meal and sorts them into the food groups. It shows children a more complicated version of food sorting. Healthy Eating This site has a series of different interactive white board activities to work on with the children.
As I said, Twinkl has a fantastic set of resources related to Healthy Eating. I used many of them in my lesson but there are lots more you may be interested in.
Design a healthy meal. Children could cut out their food themselves using fine motor skills and colour in the black and white version of this activity, or if you laminate the pictures the children can place their food on the plates.
Children could also use the pictures as guides for drawing their own plates. The link to the resource is here! Shopping list writing frames!
Writing frames are very different to worksheets. A writing frame gives the children a framework for which they can put in their own writing. They work really well as a guide as children have a purpose for writing. Click here to go to the resource.
Cafe Role Play This premium pack has everything you need for turning your role play area into a cafe. I thoroughly recommend signing up as a school to Twinkl as it really is worth it.
Alternatively, you can ask the children to work with you to make a cafe by yourselves, using this as an artwork project. Click here to access this resource.
