Toddler Playschool: Y is for Yum! Food is Fun {free printable}

Pin It
For the letter Y I thought we'd explore something that most kids like: food. Food is a fun topic for kids because it's something familiar, but also presents the opportunity to explore new things. So I culled our books and found our top five favorite books on food and planned activities around them. Check out the toddler activities on food that I put together in this free lesson plan for the letter Y.
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

If You Mix Red and White
(If You're Happy and You Know It tune)
If you mix white and red, you get pink
If you mix white and red, you get pink
If you mix white and red, you get pink, that's what I said
If you mix white and red, you get pink

I'd Eat it Anyway (Imagination Movers)
5 Little Peas
(Five Little Ducks tune)
Five little peas sat in a bowl
One pea said, "I'm getting cold!"
It rolled over onto a spoon.
Four little peas said, "We'll be there soon!"
(repeat until no little peas left)
--Andie Jaye
Y Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
