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!
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.
I like this variation of picture matching: close-ups!
Tracing words on a wipe-off sheet. These are part of the flower pack from 3Dinosaurs
Examining the Parts of a Flower
We love all of our botany puzzles (affiliate link)! The older children have been enjoying tracing and coloring the puzzle pieces. I need to dig up a picture of that activity in action.
Dissecting a flower
3-Part Cards. I adapted these from the set available at The Montessori Printshop.
On the Fine Motor Shelf
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!
In the Art Area
Origami paper folding
Pinpunching a daffodil
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.
We typically have flower arranging available for the children. I don’t have a current photo, but here’s an oldie!
