We are starting the alphabet in PK3 and plan to have a different snack that corresponds to the alphabets. I am looking for any websites or references of simple recipes that can be provided the children at snack time. Thanks.
A wondeful book that I use is called "Alphabet Recipes for Snacktime" it is published by scholastic the ISBN #: 0-439-30359-1
These are all no cook recipces and most are nutrious. It also includes a poem for each snack which I like to put on chart paper and have the class come up and circle letters they recognize. (I let mine circle any letter they know not just the letter of the week) I love this book. If there is specific letter you are struggling with let me know.
Our favorites have been the Wishing wand for W (pretzel rod, peanut butter, chopped nuts, and a few cookie sprinkles so they sparkle) and the Lion for L (small flour tortilla, peanut butter, pretzel sticks, rasins, mini ritz cracker, and shoestring licorice).
Here are some celebration days for each letter (I know they are not a snack but they are fun)
