Teaching Preschoolers about Strawberries
Preschool teachers can teach little ones about strawberries by incorporating hands-on, sensory learning experiences that engage all of the senses.
For example, teachers can set up a strawberry-themed sensory bin full of felt strawberries and black bean “seeds”.
If your little ones like this idea, check these out:
- Strawberry Lemonade Sensory Bin from Putting the Pretty in Preschool
- Strawberry Letter Recognition Sensory Bin from ABC’s of Literacy
If you have access to a local u-pick strawberry farm, take a field trip to pick some of your own. Once you bring them back home, let your preschoolers taste some.
You could also try the strawberries in these recipes:
- Strawberry Milk Recipe from Kids Eat in Color
- Strawberry Oatmeal Snack Cake from Happy Kids Kitchen
- Healthy Strawberry Muffins from Yummy Toddler Food
Additionally, teachers can incorporate children’s literature that features strawberries, such as “The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear” by Don and Audrey Wood.
I happen to have printables to go with this story.
By providing opportunities for children to learn through exploration and play, teachers can ignite a love of learning about the world around them and strawberries in particular.
