Flowers are Blooming
I know your calendar says different but I TRIED to plan for and LIKE the magnet unit but honestly… it was just pretty lame, After spending the weekend wedding gardens and planting flowers I decided that our unit on flowers would be perfect.
In a sensory bin the children used miniature and gardening tools to scoops and poor black sand ( our play dirt )
There were new puzzles about gardening out.
There were flower creation toys.
There was also a flower fairy head to play with. The girls loved to comb and play with her hair.
Ms Dallas has an observation for her CDA on Wednesday so I am letting her be ” lead ” teacher this week so it will feel more natural with her visitor here. Though we work as a team we each have our own responsibilities. I have to admit that I still smile a little when things get a little wonky in the classroom and she needs my help. 🙂
In small groups they played a matching game with seed packets
They planted seeds in a small pot.
in large groups they read the book by Eric Carle called “The Tiny Seed. ” It is a book about the life cycle of a seed. The finished up large group by watching the video I shared on facebook last night about dandelions.
The computer is being a little cranky so I am going to post the pictures as an album.
