H is for Hamburger ~ even in Portuguese!


For my Afternoon Program, which I do Tues, Weds and Thurs, one room at a time, we are using the alphabet to determine our activities and learning.  This week was H!  H is for hamburger and it’s also for “hora” which means hour and also, loosely, time.  They’ll ask, “a que horas?”  meaning, “what time?” etc.


There aren’t a ton of words that start with H that were practical for our program so we focused on time.  And hamburgers!  We made out own clocks, so fun!  It took a little trial and error but most of them got it.


I chalked out a huge clock in our main room and the boys had to pick a number and find their place in the clock.  Then we took turns laying down to form the big and little hands and had the boys lay down to make a time we had called out.  I say “we” because I took a turn laying on the floor being the big hand as well!IMG_3561


After working up an appetite, we came back into my house for the highlight of the day!


You should have heard those boys oohing and aahing over how good these hamburgers smelled cooking!  We didn’t have buns so we used regular bread.  I think the part they liked best was that I slathered them in ketchup, or as they call it, “tomate sauce!”  They love it!  I think I could just give them a cup of ketchup and call it a snack!

I really don’t think any of these boys had ever had a hamburger.  They certainly aren’t served here and when they go out, it’s always for chicken or pizza.

Needless to say, they loved it!
