Week of May 11 – Colgate

As they say, April showers bring May flowers, so we are learning all about Flowers this week. Here is a special message from Miss Kathryn all about Flower Week:

Miss Jasmine would like to share a book called Biscuit in the Garden:

Gross Motor Activity – Flower Number Line

Now that the weather is a bit nicer, this would be a fun activity to do outside if you are looking for something more than just “free play” outdoors. Here is a link to print colored flowers that are numbered 1-20 You need to create an account, but the download is free; but I am sure the creative moms and dads out there can create their own flowers as well. You can tailor this game to whatever developmental level your child is at, but basically, you place the numbers randomly on the ground and when you call out a number your child has to jump to that flower. Here are a few more variations of the game:

  • Placing the numbers in the correct order to form a number line and jump along it
  • Using different gross motor skills to get between numbers including hopping, skipping and jumping
  • Counting backwards from 20 to 1
  • Jumping on odd numbers and then even numbers
  • Jumping in fives

This activity can be found on:
