Here is a journal entry after we read a book about how plants grow. We discussed how plants make sugar for themselves. I love her reaction to this news!
|"I learned about that plants eat sugar. And sugar is sweet. I wish I could have sugar everyday. But I really do not want to do it because my teeth will fall out. And it's not fair that plants get to have sugar!" I LOVE this journal entry!!!|
During our writing workshop time another student wrote about roses. We have been discussing seasons changing lately. I love how he tied this in to the ending of his story.
|"The rose is growing and it is getting water."|
|"The dirt is wet and it (the rose) is getting big."|
|"Now it is Winter! The rose is dying and it is dropping it's seeds."|
We've also been observing our seeds in the science center each week. Some of our plants are doing better than others. I always feel bad for the few who's seeds just won't grow and I try to add a few extra seeds to their pots to try to help them out!
|"My plant is growing. It got sunlight."|
|"It needs more sun. When will my flower grow? I wish the sun was out."|
