Cherry trees produce fruit for people to pick and eat during the summer. We looked at the Inspiration Photo and talked about the different colors, shapes and textures. During this Invitation to Create, the kids built and designed their own interpretation of a cherry tree. They used stickers and tissue paper to represent their own cherry tree art. During the process, children made choices and constructed a plan of their own.
We played "Counting Petals." They took turns rolling number cube, identified number and placed that many sticks in the play dough like flower petals.
For fine motor, they traced lines or drew in their journals.
