Flower Literacy Activities


Your kids will love this hands-on flower theme literacy activity. Use it to teach letters, letter recognition, letter sounds, and beginning sounds.

This flower theme literacy activity printable is one of my favorite resources in my store.  I had so much fun designing each of the flowers and I love how kids can place them inside each of the flowerpots.  The resource is a great hands-on learning activity to help you teach letters of the alphabet and beginning sounds.

  • lowercase letter flowers
  • uppercase letter flowers

How to Assemble the Hands-on Activity

What makes this resource so unique is that the flower pots are actually little pouches and the letter or beginnings sound flowers can be placed in each flower pot pouch.

You will need to do some assembling to create the pouches.  If you don’t have time for assembly or if you don’t like crafty projects, you can just cut out the front, colored portion of each flower pot and use it for a matching activity.  But…..I guarantee that it’s worth the time to assemble the flower pots.

Kids love “planting” flowers in each pot.

You will find step-by-step assembly instructions in the resource directions, but I will give you a quick overview of how to assemble the pots.  After printing the alphabet flower pots, you will need to cut them out.

After printing your flowerpots for your flower literacy activity, go ahead and cut them out.

Fold the flowerpots in half and place the folded pots inside a laminating pouch.

Fold your flowerpot in half and place it inside a laminated pouch for your flower literacy activity.

After laminating the pouches, cut them out so that a border of the laminate holds the sides together.  Finally, you will need to cut a slit in the laminate on the top of the flowerpot to create an opening.

TADA!  You can feel proud that you made such a cute activity for your kids.
