Say the word potato and then write it on the board. Draw a line under the second o and tell pupils that this o is pronounced like the o in go and so. Ask children what a potato is (a vegetable). Have children name as many vegetables as they can. List them on the board. Then have each child choose a different vegetable from the list, draw a picture of it, and label it. You may wish to have children separate the vegetables into two groups: those that grow above the ground and those that grow underground. Help children construct a bulletin board of the labeled pictures, to which other vegetables can be added during the week
