Our May Following Directions Packet: Flowers in Garden is a fun way to practice listening, build vocabulary and learn about different flowers.
The following directions packet contains five different garden scenes each one with five different common garden flowers. Your kids will follow a different set of directions for each scene to color and draw on the pictures. They will love coloring with colored pencils or crayons during this fun hands-on activity.
Target vocabulary includes: above, below, bottom, left, right, center, middle, front, back, between and more. Plus your children will learn the difference between annual and perennial flowers and some different facts about the flowers. The directions will cue them to look at the different shapes of leaves and flowers so they can start to identify different plants in nature.
Modifications are suggested in the instructions to make the activity harder or easier depending on the level of your children so this packet can be used with a variety of ages and skill levels!
And if you have preschool children, check out the kite pictures with simple directions at the end of the packet for a fun following direction activity that gets them moving and working on their colors!
First young children will follow directions to color the pictures. Then you will give them directions to place the pictures around your home working on vocabulary such as under, behind, in front of, on top, and next to. Preschoolers learn best when they move!
