Verda Deirzen Celebrates Fruit Week

During the week of Sept 12-16, Verda Deirzen Early Learning Center celebrated Fruit Week. Each day was assigned a different color. Each day students and staff were asked to wear the color. Teachers talked to students about what fruit was the assigned color and how that fruit was good for the body. Students were encouraged to bring fruit for snacks and lunch and hot lunches offered the color fruit of the day for students to eat. The cafeteria was decorated in the color of the day. And in gym class, students played color games or fruit games.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Staff and students all participated in wearing the color of the day.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students learned about different color fruits and even tried different fruits

What improvements have you seen at your school?

More children are bringing fruits as a snack or as part of their cold lunch. Students that eat hot lunches are trying the fruits provided more often.
