THE ENORMOUS POTATO
Our gardening theme continues with The Enormous Potato Click Here. After reading the story, talk about the sequence. Who pulled the potato first, after that? Talk about other things that are enormous: elephants, tractors, and tall buildings to name a few. Was the mouse the strongest or was it cooperation that caused the potato to come out of the ground? What other things are better when we cooperate (cleaning up goes faster if we all cooperate, dad and mom are calmer when brothers and sisters cooperate and get along). What is a potato eye? Next time you are at the grocery store (or if you have them at home), see if you can find a potato eye on a potato.
Talk about all the things that can be made from potatoes: fries, baked, tator tots, potato chips, hash browns, mashed potatoes and potato soup are a few. Choose one or two and prepare them for dinner!
