Arts & Crafts
On a dry day cut an odd number of long stems of lavender. Arrange them in a cone shape.
Bind together with cotton thread-wrapping around the flower heads finishing below the flower heads. Knot. Bend the stems upwards over the flowers.
Tie one end of a long length of cotton tightly around the stems.
Weave the cotton in and out of the stems, pulling tight as you go. When you reach the end, tie a knot in the cotton and tuck out of sight. tuck these in your drawers or under your pillow.
two 2 inch pieces of material
needle and thread/sewing machine
Pick a bunch of lavender and hang to dry, upside-down in a cool, dry place until absolutely dry. Break off the brittle flowers to use for making the bags or potpourri.
Cut two pieces of material 6 inches square with pinking shears. Pin together with right sides together and sew along three sides. Clip the two bottom corners.
Turn bag right side out and fill with lavender.
leaving a long end of thread, sew running stitches around the bag from the top. pull the two ends of thread tight to close the bag and tie a knot.
Tie some colored ribbons around the bag to decorate.
L is for Library
Take the class on a visit to the local library, and see all the books of literature, etc.
L is for limbo
Play some limbo music and have the children dance under a limbo stick as an exercise activity.
L is for Love
We start with a discussion of what is love? We ask love is sharing, what can you share? Love is inviting someone to play, who could you invite?
Love is helping your family, how could you help your family? Then inside a big red heart, the children draw a picture of what love is.
Sit in a row and count everyone's legs.
Stop look and listen before you cross the street.
Look through a kaleidoscope.
Big and little
Talk about what to do if you are lost.
Large and small
Let the kids feel lace
Talk about who lives in and around a lake. Make a boat.
Everyone come sit on my lap. Take turns, try someone else's lap.
Talk about what laws are and why we have them.
Talk about helpers.
Everyone taste it....SOUR
Everyone bring a flashlight to share and shine them.
Lick it or make paper ones to learn colors.
Draw a line on the driveway. Play tug o'war.
Where are your lips?
Help clean up litter. Don't be a litter bug.
Mail yourself or someone else a letter.
Letters and letterbox
Write letters to friends in the classroom, post them in a class letterbox and have a letter carrier that gives out the mail.
Select different types of leaves and laminate them in advance. Punch a hole in the top and string with yarn to make a necklace. Give each child a necklace and set out on a walk.
Discuss the different sizes, shapes, and colors of leaves. Have the children try to find the tree their leaf came from.
Each day of the theme, give one child a shoebox and ask them to put an object in it that starts with L.
Then during group time, give the children clues and ask them to guess what the object is.
Put ladders out for outdoor play. Make sure enough adults are present to supervise ladder play, and discuss ladder safety with the children.
An all-time favorite.
And most importantly... Don't forget to LAUGH!

I love You
I love you, I love you,
I love you divine.
Please give me your bubblegum.
You're sitting on mine!
Little Liza jane
You gota gal and i got none, Lil'l Liza jane
come my love and be my one, Lil'l Liza jane
O Eliza, Lil'l Liza Jane
O Eliza, Lil'l Liza Jane
(could do some discussion and comparison of nicknames with this song. What nicknames do each of the children have? Does your mommy or daddy call you something other than your name (like I call my granddaughter Lil' Bit)....etc.
Lavender's Blue (nursery rhyme)
Lavender's blue, diddle, diddle.
When I am king, diddle, diddle,
You shall be queen.
Who told you so, didle, diddle?
Who told you so?
Twas mine own heart, diddle, didle
That told me so.
roses are red, diddle, diddle
Violets are blue.
Because you love me, diddle, diddle,
I will love you.
here we go looby loo,
Here we go looby light,
Here we go looby loo,
All on a Saturday night.
You put your right hand in,
You put your right hand out,
You give your right hand a shake, shake, shake
And turn yourself about!
Lazy Mary Will You Get Up?
Lazy Mary, will you get up,
Will you get up, will you get up?
Lazy Mary, will you get up
Will you get up today?
No, no, Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up, I won't get up.
No, no, Mother, I won't get up,
I won't get up today.
Can have a discussion with the children about the word "lazy" and about how good it feels to sleep in sometimes.
On the other hand, about disobeying Mother by refusing to get up.
Little Bo Peep
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they will come home
Wagging their tails behind them.
Little Boy Blue
Little boy Blue, come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under the haystack, fast asleep.
Could combine Little Boy Blue and Lazy Mary and compare them. Talk about why it's bad the sheep's in the meadow and the cow's in the corn.
What was the little boy supposed to be doing? Why do you think the boy was so tired? What is a haystack? What is a meadow?
Little Jack Horner
Little Jack Horner sat in a corner
Eating his Christmas pie.
he stuck in his thumb and pulled out a plum.
And said, "What a fine boy am I!"
Have children act out each animal.
The lion walks on padded paws
The squirrel leaps from limb to limb
While flies can crawl straight up a wall,
And seals can dive and swim
The worm, it wiggles all around,
The monkey swings by it's tail,
and birds may hop upon the ground
Or spread their wings and sail.
But boys and girls have much more fun
The leaves are whirling round and round. (wave fingers in air)
The leaves are falling to the ground (wave fingers down to floor)
Round and round, round and round (roll one hand over the other)
Falling softly to the ground (softly wave hands down to ground.)
