Next, have the children match up the flowers to the flower pots by letters.

 Plant Pot Flower Letters A, B, C Match Up

Flower Letter Match Up
Review Letters A – J

You will need 10 small sturdy plastic plant pots and label them A, B, C, D through the letter J. If you don't have any plastic flower pots you can use then see if you can find some metal cans (no sharp edges) from canned spaghetti, canned veggies, peanuts or use you may be able to use sturdy plastic cups; such as yogurt cups, or the covers from liquid soap (washed out) or sturdy plastic drinking cups, etc.

Flower Directions: Print out the flower tops onto white cardstock paper and color each flower top with a marker, use one color, such as red, orange, purple, green, brown and blue, color the centers yellow as you will need to write the letters into the centers of the flowers, if the centers are a light color you can use a marker onto the flowers center otherwise you will need to use circle stickers to write the letters on.

After all the flower tops have been colored attach them to jumbo craft sticks.

Lay all the flowers face down onto the floor and have the children sit around the flowers. Line up all the plant pots A, B, C...J in order in a row.

Have the children take turns picking a flower from the floor and holding it up and showing you which letter is on the flower and then have them match it to the matching letter on the flower pot and place the flower inside the flower pot, repeat with each child.

After they are done with this activity, teacher can mix up the flower pots and see if the children can help you get them back into the correct alphabetical order.

Song/Rhyme: Who Took A Blue Flower?

You will need the flower card file, cardstock paper, and a cloth bag or pillowcase.

You will need to use the flower cards again on day 4 and day 5.

Print out the flower cards onto white cardstock paper and place all the flowers into a cloth bag and have the children take turns picking one flower from the bag, have them hold up the flower and then sing the song below.

Repeat for each child for each colored flower that he/she picks from the bag.

There are only six flower cards, as they become used up, you will need to place them back into the bag and continue until everyone gets a turn.

Tune to: "The Farmer in the dell"

Ryan picked a flower,
Ryan picked a flower,
Hi Ho the dairy oh, Ryan picked a blue flower!

Note: As you sing the song above, change the name Ryan in the song above to the child's name that picks the flower from the bag and change the color of the blue flower to the color of the flower that he/she picks from the bag.

Art Time: Flower Poster

You will need white cardstock paper, flower poster file, sunflower seeds and crayons or markers.

Print out the flower poster onto white copy paper, print out one per child and have the children glue a few sunflower seeds to the seed circle, have them color the soil circle brown, the water circle blue and the sun circle yellow, have them color the flower any color they would like.

 Flower Game

Learning Time: Flower Game

Explain to the children that to grow a flower you first need a flower seed and the flower seed needs soil, water and sunshine to grow.

Then tell the children they are going to play the flower game and the first child to get all four items that the flower seed needs to grow into a flower will be the winner.

Flower Game Directions: The children will need to collect all four items (seed circle, soil circle, water circle and the sun circle) to win, place the pictures around the flower on the circles.

Print out the flower game and flower game pieces onto heavy paper such as white cardstock paper you will need to print out one flower game board per child. There are enough flower game pieces on each page for 2 children, print out enough flower game pieces for all the children.

Lay the flower game pieces face down onto the floor. Give each child a game board and show them the four circles on the game board and explain that in each circle is what the flower seed needs to grow into a flower. Tell them that they need one of each picture and as they collect the pictures they will match them up to the pictures on their game board, if they pick the same picture twice they need to put the duplicate picture back, face down onto the floor, and then the next child will take his turn, the first child to collect all four items is the winner.

Letter/Number: Pick The Sunflowers

Flower Directions: Print out the sunflowers onto white cardstock paper, print out two to three flowers per child. Cover the flowers completely with clear contact paper or clear packing tape and then cut them out. You will need old fashioned clothespins, the ones that don't have a spring in them, and in the opening of the clothespin place the stem of the flower and tape it in there so it won't move, repeat with each of the flower print outs.

Cards: You will need a deck of playing cards and take out all the numbers 2 – 4 from the deck, you will be using only the playing cards with the numbers 2 – 4 on them, shuffle the cards and lay them face down onto the floor.

Activity: Have the children sit in a circle around the cards and take turns picking a card from the floor. Have them hold up the number they picked from the floor and tell you the number on the card and then have them pick that many sunflowers from the sunflower garden. After all the flowers have been picked from the sunflower garden, have the children plant the sunflowers, by putting them back, have them pick a card and put the sunflowers back or plant them, after all the sunflowers have been planted, then have them "pick the flowers again". Repeat until everyone has had a turn. Help the children as needed.

Preschool Curriculum Program

Our preschool curriculum program is geared towards children 2.5 up to 5 years old. Our curriculum is aimed at teaching the children their shapes, colors, upper and lower case alphabet and numbers, learning to tell time, learning a few beginning sounds, simple science activities and so much more. Children will be using glue, paint and working on learning how to cut, trace, tell time plus work on pre math, pre reading, and science. Some of the simple science projects would be sorting fruits and vegetables, growing grass, watching an ant farm and so many other exciting activities!!

Our todder curriculum program is available for every month of the year. Our toddler themes are geared towards children 16 months to about 2.5 years. Our toddler program provides lessons on teaching the toddlers their colors, shapes, numbers up to 10, and some of their alphabet. These lessons are for children beginning to paint and glue. We also provide the words to songs/finger rhymes along with other fun activities. Our toddler curriculum is sold seperately, please click here to view our toddler program.

How Our Program Started. We decided to develop a toddler/preschool curriculum program because we couldn't find one that we liked. We have worked very hard at developing a good toddler/ preschool curriculum program. I bought several books on Preschool Themes and even tried a few programs that delivered every thing to your doorstep. My problem was that became expensive and the books I purchased were not quite what I was looking for. I would go through the whole book only to use one or two activities. I was determined to have a Great Toddler/Preschool Program. I have taken several classes on creating your own curriculum and have learned a lot of new ways to teach children. So I finally decided it was time to come up with my own curriculum. I find my program works really well with my home daycare but all the activities will work for a larger daycare setting or preschool or even for Mom who is lucky enough to be home with her child. All children need daily stimulation and my program provides a lot of fun interesting activities. We hope you enjoy the curriculum as much as we enjoyed putting this program together.

Getting Ready For School. We have found that when children are having fun and enjoy what they are doing, they learn quickly, which is what our program is all about, teaching the children through fun activities. Our program is like providing a mini nursery school and preschool program in your own home. Parents like the idea that their child is having fun participating in daily activities, art projects, songs, finger plays and games, which is teaching them and getting them ready for school.

Weather Chart

Weather Chart

My preschool curriculum provides a circle time, art time, learning time and a special activity for five days per week. We start our morning program off each day with circle time. To begin our circle time, we discuss with the children the weather outside. We have the children look out the window and then we ask them "what is the weather outside?"If you have a lot of younger children they may not be able to answer correctly, then we give them hints; such as, (Is the sky white or blue?) if its white does anyone know what that means? (It’s cloudy) "Is it raining outside?" "Is snowing outside?""Is it cloudy outside?""Is it windy outside?"We have a weather chart and each day we have one of the children move the arrow to the correct weather for that day. The weather chart is included in the toddler or preschool curriculum.

Next we focus on the calendar. I will ask the children "Does anyone know what day it is?" If no one knows what day it is, I will tell them, "Today Is Thursday."I made a felt calendar with numbers that have Velcro on their backs to stick to the calendar. The children take turns putting up the numbers each day to show that days date. The Toddlers are too young to understand what a calendar is but they still have fun sticking up the numbers. Our calendar is in my dining room and the children need to climb up into a chair to be able to reach the calendar to put on the numbers. I always stand nearby when they are climbing onto the chair incase they start to fall. After the number for the day is put up, we start at number one, on the calendar and I have the children count with me, to the new date that we just placed onto the calendar. As they say the numbers I point to the numbers on the calendar to help to teach them their numbers.

Circle Time – We start our Toddler / or Preschool Program off each day with circle time. We try to get all the children to sit together in a circle on the floor. We never force any child to participate, but we do try to encourage participation. You will find in the daily lessons which activity to do each morning for circle time. Our circle time activities could be a talk or discussion but usually involves a fun activity such as a learning activity, games, singing songs, hearing a story, etc.

Fun Way To Learn – We have found a lot of fun ways to help the children to learn while they’re having fun. After out circle time activity we focus on the calendar. I made a Velcro one with Velcro numbers. The children take turns putting the numbers up each day. Toddlers are too young to understand what a calendar is but they still have fun sticking up the numbers and singing our seven days of the week song. All the older toddlers can sing most of it.

Seven Days Of The Week Song

There are seven days in the week, seven days in the week. There are seven days in the week. "Hold up 7 fingers"

And I know them all. "Point to self"

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Saturday is the last one. Saturday ends the week. "Teacher will point to each day on the calendar"

Repeat song.

Singing Songs And Reciting Rhymes - Each week we teach the children a few new songs or rhymes for that week's theme. Children like repetition so don't be afraid to sing any song the children really like on a daily basis, but try to add a few new ones each week. Don't expect the toddlers to sing with you but they really enjoy music so please sing. In time they will be able to copy the hand movements to the songs and nursery rhymes they hear often and before you know it they will start to sing a word or two. Be sure to include some of the children's favorites each week. Some of our children's favorites are listed below.

  • The Wheels On The Bus
  • If You’re Happy And You Know It
  • Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
  • ABC Song
  • Old McDonald Had A Farm
  • The Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • One Two Buckle My Shoe
  • Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed
  • Five Little Monkeys Teasing Mr. Crocodile
  • Plus others.

Weather Chart - The weather chart is included in every monthly curriculum package. We start our morning program off each day with circle time. To begin our circle time, we discuss with the children the weather outside. We have the children look out the window and then we ask them "what is the weather outside?"If you have a lot of younger children they may not be able to answer correctly, then we give them hints; such as, (Is the sky white or blue?) if its white does anyone know what that means? (It’s cloudy) "Is it raining outside?""Is it snowing outside?""Is it cloudy outside?""Is it windy outside?"We have a weather chart and each day we have one of the children move the arrow to the correct weather for that day.

Daily Circle Time Activities

Art Time - There is a daily art project (craft) for the children to do each day that goes along with that weeks theme. After circle time we have the children come to the table and sit down and get ready for art time. Look in your Toddler or Preschool lesson plans to see which craft you will be doing that day, and if you need to print anything out for that days craft. If we are going to use glue I place the glue into tiny plastic cups such as the kind you get with the sample play dough. I only put a small amount in the cup; just enough for that days project. I give the toddlers large brushes to use and the preschoolers smaller ones. If we are going to paint I make sure each child has some type of paint shirt on. If you do not have enough paint shirts, you can always use an old sweat shirt and cut off the arms. Anything will work. We use our old and stained up wash clothes for paint rags. I just wet the paint rag and it keep it handy for spills or for a child who is done before the others, or we may keep a dish pan with a small amount of water in it for the children who finish early to rinse off until they can get into the bathroom to wash up with soap and warm water.
