Spring Preschool Centers

When I think of spring, my memories take me back to when I was in Grade 3 or 4. I remember waking up to the sound of Australian birds chirping in our gum tree and Banksia bushes. I remember the warmth of the morning sun as its rays peeked in between the tall trees. The air smelled of divine freshness as I walked to school with my older brother and younger sister. I remember touching every bush and flower and breathing in their scent as we walked along… Alrighty! Enough with the reminiscing! Time to get to the reason we are here: to give you all a sneak peak at what’s included in my Spring Preschool Centers. PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Spring Preschool Centers packet. You can download the free sample pages by click on the photos.

I am a firm believer that correct letter formation cannot be reinforced enough, and so I included alphabet tracing cards in this packet too. I laminated my cards and made a hole with a hole punch in the top left corner and secured the cards together with a key ring. (* Formation for lower case “d” has been corrected. ) (Click the photo below to get letters A-F.) Next, there is a letter and beginning sounds matching activity. After laminating and cutting our the flowers, I stuck them on to some colored Popsicle / icy-pole sticks and voila! You could put them into some pots with a label on the front and ask children to put the flowers into the correct pots. (Click the photo below or above to get letters A-E.) If your kiddos are confident with alphabet order, they will definitely love this next activity! They have to clip the missing letter in the correct spot to complete the alphabet sequence. You could attach Velcro dots on the back of each frog and empty spot, but I am not really a big fan of that; I prefer using clothes pegs because little fingers get a good work out as they squeeze to clip and unclip the pegs. (Click the photo below to get some sample cards.) Next, I included a syllable counting activity. Children read a word and clap out the number of syllables. Once children have learnt letter sounds, they can move on to reading CVC words. The next activity requires children to say the CVC word on each pot and identify the missing short vowel sound.... read more
