Rice Babies

Pre-K girls loved their rice baby project.
The girls made Rice Babies - a true fan favorite over the years. During centers, Pre-K girls scooped rice into socks in the baby station and then decorated a face with buttons and pom poms. The girls brought in information about their own births from home to share. Each girl has shared her birth weight and length and the story of how she got her name. They then put their math skills to work and measured and weighed their rice babies. Students used our rekenreks to reinforce the numbers and compared them to their actual birth stats. Each girl decorated a shoe box to be used as a baby crib for the unit. The Pre-K ladybugs are having a wonderful time singing and reading nursery rhymes to their babies, and the classrooms are filled with stories of, ‘I remember when I was a baby…’
