Well spring is finally in the air, and we started our unit on plants! We’ve learned all about the different parts of the plant this week, and then we discussed what parts of a plant you could eat. I don’t think my kids realized how many different plant parts could actually be eaten! They were loving it!
We made this little anchor chart as we brainstormed the different parts that would be yummy in our tummies.
After we thought of as many as we could, we made some plants to put in our “class garden.” I saw this idea on pinterest and just knew that we had to do it! It turned out so adorable!
Here are some close ups of the vegetables and fruits.
You can download the labels in the picture below!
Next week, we’re working on the –ump and –unk chunk. Since Easter is just around the corner, I decided to make some word work eggs that I had pinned way back when! Here’s how they turned out. I added some tape around them to make the letters more secure. The labels kept wanting to peel off.
I also made a symbol chart and data sheet to go with them. I left the chunk section blank on one copy so that you can use them with different words. If you’d like to download, just click on the pictures below! Hope you enjoy!
Freebie with the –unk and –ump chunk.
This freebie has a blank space for the chunk so that you can choose your own!
We’re starting to wrap up our Texas symbol unit. We made a few more Texas crafts. We made these cute pecan trees that I saw on my sweet sister-in-law Jaymee’s blog, Adventures in First Grade. We also made the Alamo. They turned out so cute, and the kiddos always love to paint!
That about wraps up this week! So glad that it’s FRIDAY!!! Hope ya’ll have a wonderful weekend!
