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.

Continuing on with our spring unit we have been learning about parts of a plant and their needs.  We learned a song, “Flower, Stem, Leaves, and Roots”, followed motions on our bodies pretending we were the plant and read a written copy of it.  This was done to differentiate our reading comprehension to our learners that are more musically inclined, and kinesthetic learners .

We then took what we learned from the song and the dance and created a diagram of a plant and labeled it’s parts and the things it needs to grow.

We then took beans and and put them in a little bit of water to see if we could get them to grow.  First we will just add a little water and put them in soil later once they’ve started to sprout a little bit.
