Take sight word "are" off the word wall and leave a note from a pirate that it was taken (mistaken with "arrghhh"). Go on a treasure hunt to get the word back for the word wall (use with Pirates in Kindergarten story).
After reading the Princess and the Pea, we used scrap book paper to make this adorable craft. I took pictures of each child wearing a crown while reclining on a table. Simple hand drawn bedposts and a header were added. Don't forget to hot glue the pea under the mattresses! So cute!
Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age that's interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
