Parts of a Flower                           Parts of a Flower - Worksheet


 

Fine Motor/Art:

Rainbow: As we talked about rainbows and colors of flowers this week, ask your Turtle to draw a rainbow! See if your Turtle can remember the colors in a rainbow and include them all in their drawing.  

 

Sensory/Mindfulness/Dramatic Play:

Crowns: Now that the warmer weather is here, we can all spend some extra time outside! A fun activity for your Turtle is to create a crown using the different items they can find in nature! You Turtle can glue these items onto a paper crown. Once the crown is finished, encourage your Turtle to imagine that they are a “Spring King” or “Spring Queen” as they play outside!

 

Gross Motor/Yoga/Outdoor Nature based/Games:

Nature Patterns: There are all sorts of ways to create a pattern! Ask your Turtle to create a pattern using anything they can find in nature. For example, they could make a “rock, pinecone, rock, pinecone” pattern. Have them lay their pattern out somewhere they can go back and see.

 

STEM- Math, Science, Building:

Plant a seed: All plants start out as tiny seeds. See if your Turtle can plant a seed and watch it grow! You can plant your seed in a plastic bag with wet paper towels in the window or plant the seed in some soil!


Extensions

 

Extension from Circle: In circle this week we saw what a “walking rainbow” looks like. See if you can create your very own “walking rainbow” at home! If you don’t have food coloring to dye the water, you can use markers and color the ends of the paper towel instead! Walking Rainbow Directions

 

Extension from Small Group: We have some number flowers missing their petals! See if your Turtle can draw the correct number of petals for each flower. The number in the middle of the flower is the number of petals that belong on the flower.

 

Literacy:

Parts of a Flower: See if you can make your own labels for a flower in your yard or at your house. Your Turtle can use sticky notes, index cards, or pieces of paper to make their labels.

 

Fine Motor/Art:

Draw a Rainbow: If your Turtle drew a picture of a rainbow have them add the word “RAINBOW” to their rainbow picture! For an extra challenge, they can add each color word for the rainbow!

 

Sensory/Mindfulness/Dramatic Play:

Crowns: Make a stick wand to go with your nature crown. You can use ribbons, paint, glitter, or anything you want! Then your Turtle can explore the outside with their crown and wand as a “Spring King” or “Spring Queen”.

 

Gross Motor/Yoga/Outdoor Nature based/Games:

Nature Patterns: Have your Turtle draw a picture of the pattern they created! See if they can come up with any other patterns too.

 

STEM- Math, Science, Building:

Plant a seed: What other seeds can you find? See if your Turtle can find some other seeds to plant! Try checking the fruits and vegetables in your house!




FULL DAY ACTIVITIES
Children especially enjoy blowing bubbles outside and chasing them. Adding a little dawn dish soap or glycerin helps. A whisk can be especially fun use in this process.

Supply your child with an empty cereal box, colorful paper, paper towel or toilet paper tubes, glue or tape, and some markers or crayons. See what they create or encourage them to build a robot with super strength or a special skill like vacuuming.
