Spring has sprung finally! It's been a long winter for most about everyone and the signs of spring are very evidents. We are doing a mini unit on flowers. A couple of the basic things covered include:

  • Flower Identification (Daffodils, Tulips, Roses, Iris, Lily, Morining Glories, Pansies, Poppies Sunflowers, Zinnias)

  • How flowers grow (Seeds, Water, Sunlight, etc.)

  • Parts of the flower (Roots, Stem, Leaves, Flower)

Books we're reading to help supplement include:

  • Flower Garden by Eve Bunting

  • Fluffy Grows a Garden by Kate McMullan

  • The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

  • Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by G. Brian Karas

  • How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? G. Brian Karas

  • Holly Bloom's Garden by Sarah Ashman

  • Flowers and Showers A Spring Counting Book by Rebecca Davis

  • Lucy's Secret by Mireille Levert

  • Allison's Zinnia by Anita Lobel

  • The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker

  • Bumblebee, Bumblebee, Do You Know Me? by Anne Rockwell

We will include several arts and crafts as well as science projects, too. I will post each as we complete them.

This unit will also compliment Mother's Day as well.
