We started the program by reading a few poems from Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein. There were some great poems involving food in this one!
The second book we read was "More Pies!" by Robert Munsch. This group always likes to read a Robert Munsch book to end our reading for the day.
Steal the Maple Syrup
To play this game split children in two teams. Have a line down the middle of the playing area to designate each teams side. Place a Jug in the middle. When you say go children must run to try and grab maple syrup first. After this point the other team is trying to steal it back. If they are tagged on the opposing teams side they must go back to their own side and start again. Set a timer for three minutes. Whichever team has the jug when the time is up wins.
