Play to Learn: Planting a Numbers Garden


Keeping the Littlest Diva interested in learning her numbers is a task.
I have to keep things fresh, exciting and of course fun 
if I want to keep the attention of my 4 year old.

Spring is here & she loves flowers 
(she is a Garden Fairy these days!)
so I knew just how to use that to get her attention,
I told her I needed her help....
Planting a Numbers Garden

This was easy to put together and I used things I had on hand
(though I admit I do have lots of crafts and school supplies stocked!)

What You Need:
card stock or construction paper in various colors
poster board
markers
scissors

What To Do:
1. Cut out various flower shapes
(amount depends on numbers you want to cover)
2. On poster board arrange your flower cut outs and using your markers,
draw stems right onto the poster board for your garden scene.
3. Write target numbers onto your flower cut outs.
4. Mix up your flowers and have a cute little helper plant your garden
by arranging the flowers in order.


We focused on 10-20 and then 0-100 counting by 10's.


Look at her big smile when she completed her garden & it was correct!


Tasks like these foster their confidence in learning,
and are meant to be simple, fun and focused.
Score!

Alternatives: This of course can be used for other topics as well.
I already have a "Plant a Sight Word Garden" version ready!
Some other things you can review: 
math facts -
write a math problem on the stem & answers on the flower
child has to match them up correctly
 color words  - 
make flowers with middles and write color words on the middles
have flowers in corresponding colors & child matches the color word
to the correct flower.
ABC order
uppercase/lowercase letters -
write one on flower and other on stem & child has to match them

What else can you think of that would be suited to this activity?

  8. Absolutely a great and innovative idea to grab to attention of the kids to learn something their loving way. I was impressed how you thought and implement the summer gift into a learning platform. That's really fantastic. The colorful summer indeed can touch everyone's heart and innovation. Happy to see Littlest Lil had been concentrated herself to create such numbering game on the colorful poster and flower. Life is really fun loving. I can also share the Princess mommy chronicles and her Living life that really makes you please and cheerful. Thanks for sharing.
