Flower Day

 Language Arts Lesson
for Flower Day

Objective:
The students will write about a magic flower seed.  (This lesson coincides with the Art Lesson.)



Materials

  • A book about flowers turning into fruits or vegetables, such as One Bean by Anne F. Rockwell, It's Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall, or The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall.

  • Paper

  • Writing Utensils

  • Seeds of any type (one per student)

 

Procedure

  1. Read the chosen book and discuss with the students how many flowering plants bear fruits and vegetables.

  2. Pass out the seeds and tell the students they are going to be able to write about their own magic seed.  Their magic seed will begin growing as any other plant and eventually flower.  However, the flower on their plant will turn into anything they wish.  

  3. Pass out the paper and have the students write about their magic seed.

  4. Younger students may complete simple sentences such as "My seed will grow into a ________________."  Older students may write longer stories explaining exactly how their plant will grow, flower, and produce the desired object.  

  5. Proceed to the Art Lesson.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Have a phonics lesson on the fl blend or the ow sound.

  2. Write flower poetry.

  3. A bunch of flowers is called a bouquet.  Using Ruth Heller's book, A Cache of Jewels, have a lesson on collective nouns.
