Preschool Plant Unit
Little Sweet has really showed an interest in plants. She was so excited to see the flowers blooming and the leaves on the trees. I thought it would be fun to do a unit on plants. My mom also thought we needed to start a garden so she bought Little Sweets these great crayola plant starter kits.
Little Sweets is planting the tomato seeds in the soil.
She is watering the seeds.
Little Sweets used unifix cubes to measure how tall this plant is.
She is helping daddy build a bed for tomato plants. Hopefully, I will show the planted tomato plants in the bed in another post. We just haven't planted them in it yet.
Here is one of Little Sweets journal entries. I am encouraging her to use invented spelling.
This was an interactive writing activity. Little Sweets dictated a sentence about plants. I wrote the words she didn't know and she wrote the words she knew. I also encouraged her to draw a picture that matched the words. She labeled the rain with my help. I encouraged her to write the sounds she heard. She wrote "ran." I helped her out by adding the i and explaining that it changes the sound of the letter "a."
We also took a field trip to the strawberry patch.
I link up to these great parties.
