Making a flower book and other flower activities

Pink  has really gotten into her flower book that she is making.  As we see a new flower we read up a bit about the flower, print off a picture, she colours in the picture, sticks it in her book and writes a few words about it. This is really improving her writing and spelling.

We found these 2 great flower pages from the 2 Teaching Mommies website.  With both activities Pink had to cut out the shapes/ labels herself and paste them.

And we where thrilled when 3 Dinosaurs did their new flower learning pack.  This pack is huge and we have not done everything in the pack what we have done so far we have loved.  The biggest hit with Pink has been these 3 part cards which we printed off and laminated.  If you have never heard of 3 part cards it is a great way for the kids to learn the words.  I have found that doing these have really helped Pinks word recognition and I am amazed at how many flower names she now knows.
