I am feeling a bit on the stressed side this week. We will be out of school in 3 short weeks (yes 3 weeks) and I have so much still to cover. I am determined to finish up my plants unit for science and I will also be doing Mrs. Abby’s Oz Unit with my kids this week during their testing. I was trying to come up with some cute activities and centers for my kiddos that had a plant theme to it, so here’s what I came up with. I hope you enjoy!
We are still really working hard on our nonsense words and we will be testing over this next week, so I made a planting words center for my kids to do during their Daily 5 time. It is a cheap and fun way for the kids to practice and I made a recording sheet to go along with it.
I just used Styrofoam cups taped to the back and pipe cleaners for the stem. I am thinking green Popsicle sticks may be better though. They are a little more sturdy.

I am also planning on decorating my door with a spring/summer theme and I figured I could also turn this into a learning activity. I am going to have my kids make a synonym and antonym flower to add to our garden (classroom door). I made a template that I plan to copy onto different colored construction paper. The word goes in the middle and the synonyms/antonyms go on the petals. You can grab your copy by clicking on the image below.
I will post more pictures from my Oz week and some fun freebies for testing. I like to leave my kids little treats on their desks during end of the year testing. I have labels that I make to go with them. Those will be posted up soon. Have a wonderful week!
