Prep was super easy!
I printed the seasons page on some brightly colored paper.
Then I printed the illustrations out on white paper.
I gathered some scissors, glue, crayons, and pencils for each child and we were all set!
Making the Seasons Flap Mat
First, I handed out the illustration page and some crayons.
Together, we talked about what season each picture was representing and then decided on the colors that we might use to color in each picture so it looked like the right time of year.
The children colored their pictures and when they were complete, we cut out the four boxes and words, making sure that we only cut on the dotted lines.
We glued the words onto the correct season picture and folded on the solid line to make a flap.
Next, we glued the flaps onto our colored piece of paper.
Finally, I asked the kids to help me name all the months in each season.
I wrote down each month under their season on the board, with the children helping me with spelling.
Then they carefully copied the months under the correct flap on their mat too.
