Community Helpers Grocer--Grocer, although a term used less and less, can help describe the people who work in our grocery stores, markets and supermarkets. You can also include many words and terms to the children such as cash registers, cashiers, store managers, shelves, freezers, deli, etc. This theme page is filled with preschool activities and ideas for all areas of your classroom.
A week or two before this theme, send a note home to families asking them to save cereal boxes, labels from cans, plastic milk and juice bottles and other food packaging that you can use in the classroom.

Use macaroni and beans to make art collages. Use heavy tagboard or cardboard. When given enough time and freedom to do their own thing, you'll end up with some great collages! We've seen planets, animals, shapes and names!
Favorite Food Collage
Materials Needed: magazines, glue or glue sticks, paper, scissors
The children cut out pictures of their favorite foods and glue them to paper.
