This watermelon is great for a summer theme, picnic theme or even a letter Ww day or week! There are 8 different activities included in this bundle. Read below to see what all is included!
Watermelon Beginning Sounds
This is a great activity for practicing beginning sounds and letter recognition. Each watermelon has four seeds. 2 pictures that start with that letter, a capital letter and a lowercase letter. There are also 8 worksheets included to go along with the center.
Watermelon Comparing Numbers:
This center is great for comparing numbers. Children choose a card, count the number of seeds on each side and then clip the side that has more.
Watermelon Cutting Practice:
Cutting practice is a great way to practice cutting skills and build up those fine motor muscles. These pair well with any space theme and I know for a fact my preschooler cannot get enough of these. They could sit and cut them all day. Print on colored paper for added fun!
Watermelon Letter and Number Sort:
This is a great activity for a pocket chart in a preschool classroom. Children sort the watermelons by number or letter. They can also sort by capital letter or lowercase letter. There are worksheets as well to reinforce this skill.
This is a great activity for practicing number sense. Children will match 4 seeds to each watermelon. 2 seeds will have a number, one has a dice and the final has a domino. There are also 2 worksheets included.
This center is great for working on fine motor control. Print and laminate the cards. Children can then use a dry erase marker to trace the dotted lines. There are 12 cards included.
Watermelon Math Around the Room:
This fun math center will get children up and moving. Hang the cards around the room and provide enough recording sheets for everyone to have their own. Children will find a watermelon with a number, identify it, and then find the corresponding number, tally, watermelon, or ten frame on their paper and color it in. This continues until all watermelons have been found..
Watermelon ABC Tracing:
This is a simple to use literacy center. Print, cut and laminate the cards and cut apart. Give children dry erase markers to trace the capital and lowercase letters. I find that using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works best for getting the cards clean. This set includes 26 cards with both capital and lowercase letters on the same card.
