Creating a flower collage in preschool

Collages are a simple way for children to extend their understanding of different concepts that they are exploring or showing an interest in…

Collage materials can include any kind of materials you can possibly think of. These children are making what I would consider one of the most basic types of collages using pictures and glue. The children are simply cutting out flower pictures and gluing them to their paper…

As the children create their collages, the teacher can invite conversation about the different kinds of flowers that are in the pictures…

By providing a large variety of flower pictures, the children are able to sort through the pictures and pick the ones that appeal to them the most…

Some children may want to add each type of flower to their collage. Other children may only want to add a few flowers or even several of the same kind of flowers to their collage. The key is providing plenty of materials so that children can make decisions and explore the process…

You can let children hunt for flowers in a magazine, print some photos from the internet, or go outside and find some real flowers. The way to make the process more inviting is to provide lots of choices!

There are many ways to explore the process of making collages. The links below are some wonderful examples of collages using a variety of materials you can share with your preschoolers…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
