Welcome to Becca's Early Childhood Education blog! I was a bit surprised that a kindergarten teacher posted in a Facebook group that her and her students were bored, that class days had been dreadful. Shock! I was sure that all kindergarten teachers and kiddos would be wrapped up in a whirlwind of activities.
So with May starting this weekend my response was to create an alphabet review based on flowers. Yes, make sure to chant "April Showers Bring May Flowers" or even use as the title for a wall display. Can't you just picture a huge basket overflowing with flower cut-outs that each feature a letter of the alphabet?
Build your basket as you progress or reverse it--start with a full basket and work backwards to make A on your last day or close to it. Whether you start with Aster or Zinnia, there are many choices for each letter.
Several websites have lists with or without photos to help you plan. This is one site:
Also use technology with the students like a virtual tour of Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, Netherlands that have hundreds of tulip varieties along with grape hyacinths, jonquils, daffodils, and more. Very beautiful!
