Blooming Flowers Preschool Storytime

Storytime for 3 to 5 year olds:

  • Color literacy activity flannelboard - Flower Colors
I got a song at a workshop a few years back about the colors of spring flowers written by Lorraine Burdick. I passed out different colored flowers to the children. Then I sang the song changing the color of the flower each time I sang it.  The children with the colored flower that I just said comes up to the place their flower on the board.  

  • Book #1 - Fran's Flower by Lisa Bruce, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw

  • Stand-up activity - Little Flower Open Up (action song written by Carol Hopkins to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star")
Little flower begin to grow
Open up your petals bright
Swaying in the sunshine light
Come and let the bees buzz right
Little flower in the night
Closing up your petals tight

  • Activity - Ten Little Flowers (fingerplay written by Carol Hopkins)
10 little flowers standing in the sun
10 thirsty flowers begin to droop
Along come the clouds
And the rain begins to fall
10 little flowers lift their heads to the sun again


  • Art experience - Muffin cup flowers with bingo paint dabbers to create seeds, stems, and leaves
