To start off our banana day we talked about the colors yellow and white, inside and outside as well as crescent shapes. We then looked around the daycare to find examples of things, though the only thing they could think of that was crescent shaped other then bananas was the moon!

After that we HAD to do the banana song, this song is always a huge hit with kids
(motion like your picking) Pick banana, pick pick banana,
pick banana, pick pick banana,

(motion like your peeling) peel banana, peel peel banana,
peel banana, peel peel banana,

(motion like your cutting) cut banana, cut cut banana,
cut banana, cut cut banana,

(motion like your eatting) eat banana, eat eat banana,
eat banana, eat eat banana

(go crazy!) go bananas, go go bananas,
go bananas, go go bananas

Then of course I couldnt lose out on this chance to talk about the letter B. I find a lot of kids have problems with b's, p's and d's since they all sound and look similar when they are lower case. To do this we made a banana, cut it in half and added paper to the inside to write on. For the littlest ones I made tracer letters but my big kids did this all by themselves!

Last but not least, we made banana 'ice cream'. I love this recipe, you just cut up bananas (or convince the kids to do it.. great for saving time and for them to practice their knife cutting skills!) and freeze them. Once they are all frozen stick into a blender (i love my magic bullet for this) and blend until it makes an ice cream like substance. Add some chocolate syrup and its delicious!
