This week in our reading program we’ve been learning about plants, and the letter f.

So to celebrate we learned about the parts of a flower, even though we usually talk about this during spring time.  We started off watching a few videos on plants growing and we sang the song “Flower, Stem, Leaves, and Roots” a song sung to the tune of “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”.

Then we did a cut and paste activity by labeling parts of a flower and decorating our flower.

Then as Thanksgiving draws closer, for math, we read the story Countdown to Thanksgiving and practiced our number recognition as we read the book.  To celebrate the letter F we talked about our favorite thanksgiving foods and made a graph about what food group the food belongs to.
