Make it Monday: Big Blooms
SHARED By: Leslie Edleman, Teacher at York Avenue Preschool
We read a story, “Grow Flower Grow” by Lisa Bruce and learned that flowers need soil, sun, seeds and water to grow. We also sang a special song to continue our flower theme.
“Inch by inch, row by row
Going to make this garden grow
All you need is a rake and a how and a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row
Please bless these seeds I sew
Please keep them warm below
Till the rain comes tumbling down”
To help the students learn about the different parts of a flower and what some flowers look like, we made our own paper blooms! We used our fine motor skills and cut out circles to resemble the flower. Then, we used muffin liners as the center of the flower and glued it onto the middle of the cutout circle. Lastly, we tore tissue paper and glued it on as decoration.
What You’ll Need:
- Colored construction paper
- Glue stick
- Muffin liners
- Tissue paper
What You’ll Do:
- Trace a circle on your construction paper
- Cut out the circle with scissors
- Glue down muffin liner in center of the circle
- Tear tissue paper
- Glue tissue paper on the muffin container
We are looking forward to planting our own seeds in our classroom and watch them grow into beautiful flowers!
