To begin our theme on flowers and plants I read the story The Tiny Seed by
Eric Carle! This story beautifully illustrates the sequence of a flower!





Each child gets to plant their own lima bean! We talk about what a plant needs to survive...sun, air, and water. We observe and water our soil everyday! We record our observations in our Plant Journal!  Print journal cover here.



Each child gets to observe their three Lima Beans growing roots!



I spread seeds all over the playground blacktop. Students get to walk
around in their socks to see if their socks pick up any seeds! This helps
 students see how seeds travel!  



We categorize living and nonliving objects!



We read our Sunflower House take home book with our butterfly pointers!


Students have fun observing flower seeds in the Science/Math Center!



Students helped sort my groceries into fruits and vegetable categories!
Once we sorted the produce, students got the opportunity to taste different kinds
of vegetables! We looked in the vegetables for the seeds and tasted
 carrots, squash, cucumbers, green beans, red potatoes, green bell pepper,
and of course the winning favorite...WATERMELON!  


This is a fun little poster I created for my Emergent Readers!
I downloaded free clipart from google.com images to accommodate
my non readers and ESL learners.


Students have fun matching alphabet letter watering cans to beginning sound
flowers at the ABC Center! Get your own flower set at the link below!
