A Flower Shop at Preschool

Spring is in full bloom! All you have to do is look out your window to be hit with the signs: colorful blossoms, the smell of freshly mowed grass, full trees, birds singing, and so many more! Sheryl, preschool teacher and creator of the blog Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds, suggests a wonderful activity that will get your students in the spring mindset; a classroom flower shop! Supplies You'll Need
- Shovels
- Watering cans
- Fake flowers
- Magnifying glasses
- Jars of seeds

Because of larger materials, this activity will take up a bit of space so you may need to dedicate a play corner to the classroom flower shop. Sheryl made sure that everything had a clearly-labeled place on the shelf. While your preschoolers may not yet be able to read, this will promote word recognition as they make associations between assigned places and objects. To introduce the new play corner to the classroom, Sheryl and her preschoolers spent time shelling edamame and playing with other seeds.
