On these last few days of school, we have been learning about
flowers! I thought this would be a good end of year activity since I am sure my little kiddos will be seeing flowers all summer on their trips to the park and around the neighborhood. So we began by reading "Planting a Rainbow" by Lois Ehlert. After reading
the story, we discussed the different types of flowers. We looked at
colors, leaves, and shapes. I then passed out the
student booklet "In My Garden" and the children illustrated their own
booklet. They wrote the color word of the flower on each page and
created the flower from paper following step-by-step illustrations. What
fun we had AND the children learned some flower identification as well
as practicing their reading and writing color words! If we had lots of time, I would take them out on a walk and we would sketch the flowers that we see around the school property. But unfortunately, we will have no time for that in our crowded last 3 days of school!
also did a little math measuring with Unifix cubes. This activity is
not my original idea. I think that I got it from Kim Adsit, but I just
revised it a little so that my kinders could do it independently!
