It's Lei Day!

In Hawaii, May 1st is Lei Day!  I used to live in Hawaii and loved taking part in Lei Day celebrations!


So I brought a little of that fun to my classroom today!  Of course I had to put a Kinder teacher spin on it!


Here are a few of the completed leis.



We got all the materials together.  Colorful Dolch word flowers,  green leaves, straw pieces, yarn, and scissors.


I had the students choose flowers that they could read.  They cut out the flowers and some leaves.  The classroom was very quiet during the cutting!!!  I punched holes in the flowers and leaves and the students began stringing the leis.

Once they were done, the ends of the yarn were tied together and everyone moved around the room reading the words on their leis to partners!

We even delivered a lei to our Principal to wish her a Happy Lei Day!




Make a High Frequency Word Lei is available for purchase in my TpT store.  It is available in Dolch, Fry, and CA Treasures versions.

Aloha,
