We just got done planting our Vegetable Gardens in "Peat Pots"......
|The boys here are showing off their seed choices....in these Peat Pots.|
|Flowers made from cupcake liners....the roots are made from string....|
|Everybody picked out their 2 favorite veggies to plant in their Peat Pots....|
We read about Jack and Beanstalk and wrote about him last year. See it HERE. And this year we read about a special Garden in our Literature Book. So we brainstormed what would happen if we planted some "magic" seeds?
|The girls loved planting veggies too.|
|They really loved Mrs. Adams art using "string" for the roots....so cute! Everybody labeled the parts of the plant too....|
|Look at that ride in Adam's Donut Garden! How fun! A donut bouncy house!|
|Peter's Pizza Park is FREE on Weekends! Who could pass THAT up?|
|Here's our creative writing....Lots of fun Gardens and Parks.....just like Disneyland!|
|Here's a sampling...but they were all very fun to read about.....|
|And all these parks are such deals! Only a buck! I wish it was real life and not a fantasy park!|
|Leave it to Gavin to think up a Money Garden....where his money grows on plants! Yay!|
|Nova's and Zach's Pizza Gardens had a Pizza ferris wheel and pizza plants all over....yum! I'd take a BIG BITE!|
|Come One, Come All! Love it!|
|We wrote down which seeds we planted on sticks so we don't forget.....Some cute plant tag printables are HERE at Chart Jungle.|
Books in my Plant unit that I Love:
1. Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert
2. The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle
3. Flower Garden by Eve Bunting
4. From Seed to Plant by Gail Gibbons
5. From Seed to Sunflower by Gerald Legg
I leave these books out on my science center and kids really do get through the whole lot of them....and some of them I read aloud.....
|The book Flower Garden has such lovely pictures....one of my favorites....|
I found these "Peat pots" for $2.00 for a set of 22.....perfect for my classroom. Then I picked out vegetable seeds I wanted to plant indoors to do some "starts" for my own veggie garden. The kids got to pick 2 kinds of seeds for their "starter" plants.
|Their rotation with Mrs. Adams where they did a Plant Journal|
|And other assorted activities....|
|The boys liked the Plant and Seeds art project they did in science rotations.|
|The girls with their labeled parts of a flower....|
|Plants and seeds are one of my favorites!|
|I hope our seeds sprout up very soon....and I better get my own garden started too! Happy Spring Gardening!!!|
