The Marquette University places two students with Christine Revell every semester who are incorporated in our Grade R classroom. Our Grade R classroom consists of 10 children aged between 4-6 and we refer to it as our little private school. Here the current student placements, Becca Swick and Bella Romero from USA were placed with CRCH for a period of 4 months. Twice a week they do activities with these children and during the last few weeks they were introduced to healthy eating, fresh fruit and vegetables and how to convert it in a fruit salad and a vegetable salad.
The children enjoyed this experience and fully loved tasting the “fruits of their labour.” Attached are some pictures where the young ladies under the guidance of the Grade R teacher, Mathilda, prepared the salads and enjoyed it. These activities tie into themes of healthy eating and getting to know your fruit and vegetables.
