Kids' Healthy Kids' Garden Activities- Teaching Students Gardening, Fun Online Kids' Gardening Activities, Teacher Resources Printables, Worksheets

Gardening is very interactive and engaging activity that excites kids to not only learn more about healthy fresh foods but actually cook and eat them! What better way to show kids how much fun fresh foods are then by letting them plant a garden. It can be as simple as one plant in a single pot or a full designated garden onsite. Either way, kids will enjoy seeing the "fruits" of their labor. Make healthy foods and nutrition fun for kids to learn about. We have created some special learning and activity pages to prepare kids for a garden program.

DLTK's Transportation Coloring Pages/Posters. Nursery Rhymes. It’s Nursery Rhyme Time! A Mother Goose Unit That’s right – it’s time for your kindergarten kids to meet Mother Goose and her cast of characters. Let Little Miss Muffet, Humpty Dumpty, and that contrary Mary teach your little ones some lilting language and then use some of our favorite activities to add to the fun! We usually do this unit during the first few weeks of school and then revisit the rhymes during different themes and holidays throughout the year. Children for generations have enjoyed the silliness of the characters’ antics. Nursery rhymes also introduce children to a cast of characters who are likely to reappear throughout their school lives.

Why Use Nursery Rhymes? They are familiar to many children They have rhythm and rhyme They can be sung to familiar tunes Oral language precedes written text They are great for phonemic awareness They have short, simple, rhyming text that is easy to memorize You can teach concepts about print in the context of familiar materials o ~Character.

Humpty Dumpty at The Virtual Vine

One year I provided my students with boiled eggs and markers to decorate and make their own Humpty Dumpty. Afterwards we let them recite the nursery rhyme and let their Humptys fall off a “wall”. Then they ate them. (Be sure you provide non-toxic markers in case some of it seeps through the shell.) Provide each student with a copy of the rhyme to add to their Poetry Journals. Put the rhyme into the pocketchart and provide another “cut up” copy of the text for the students to use in matching the text. Provide the students with a copy of the rhyme in the pocketchart, but leave out the words Humpty Dumpty. Scholastic also offers a commercial product for the pocketchart that has the sentence strips, matching pictures for each line, and even a pocketchart puzzle of Humpty sitting on top of the wall. Look for Scholastic Interactive Nursery Rhymes Pocket Charts. I’ve done this next activity several times and it always turns out cute.
