It’s Mother Goose time. There is a rhyme called Pease Porridge. You can clap along.
Pease Porridge hot,
Pease Porridge cold.
Pease Porridge in the pot,
Nine days old.
Do you know what porridge is? What about oatmeal? What about cereal? What do you like to eat for breakfast?
Sesame Street: Michelle Obama & the Most Important Meal
After reading a book about breakfast, MAKE breakfast. (It doesn’t matter what time of day it is – have breakfast for lunch or dinner!) Discuss how breakfast (or eating a healthy snack in the morning) is the most important thing you can do to get your day off to a good start.
