Our food school today was about colours and food. We are trying to show her that her eyes can be tricked, but it is still the same piece of food. It might change colour, change texture or change shape - but dont be tricked - its still the same.
Our first item for the day was mandarins. And just look what Emma did.
THREE CHEERS FOR THE STAR PUPIL - MISS EMMA
Anyway, we were very happy with this, but it was not the end of the session. Food school today revolved around injecting different food dyes into mandarins and seeing how they change colour, but are still mandarins. Still smell, taste and feel the same, but are just different. Tricky on the eyes isnt it. -)

Look at that... still mandarins - just different colours. Of course, it was not without stress, but Emma worked through it and between her and Lainy worked out a coping strategy for her.

The last exercise before clean up, was to get Emma to squeeze the mandarins, to see, yes it is the same, just different colours.
A very successful session. WTG Emma! .
