Learning about flowers

We were given such a spectacular display of flowers for Teacher Appreciation week that we thought it was time to bring out our floral works!

Beautiful Vases

Sensorial Exploration

Smelling

Touching Pollen

Different Kinds of Flowers

We have a ridiculous number of picture matching cards and they’re all out on the shelves!  I may donate some of these to a needy teacher this summer. Almost all these images are from flower catalogs.

Parts of a Flower Puzzle

We love all of our botany puzzles!  The older children have been enjoying tracing and coloring the puzzle pieces.  I need to dig up a picture of that activity in action.

A bird’s eye view of the materials I pulled out for our fine motor works.  The dry transfer activities have tiny flower shaped pasta.  Fun!

Watercolor

Somewhere along my teaching journey I had picked up these lovely blacklines.  Finally added them to our art shelf for the children to use with the watercolors.

Flower Arranging

We typically have flower arranging available for the children.  I don’t have a current photo, but here’s an oldie!

What a great idea to use flower catalogs for matching flower cards – one of those *DUH* moments when I wonder why I didn’t think of that one already! Thanks for the great ideas!

I love the small to large picture match up, I remember that being a challenge for the kids when they were younger.
