Jack and the Beanstalk and Planting Grass Seeds July 26, This week in summer school we have been learning about plants. We have been studying what are plants, what do plants need to grow as well as reading fictional books about plants.
It is a FREE resource for teachers to get fun and engaging literature on almost any topic. I created a login using my school email and that was it! Each book tells you the age range, the reading time and Lexile measure so I was able to pick appropriate books! We actually would have planted bean seeds but I was worried that we would not see a significant change in time we only had 5 days of programming left.
The students were SO excited when they received their grass seeds. Some students made observations and wanted me to help them record what they notice. Some students are not writing yet so I wrote for them. Collecting data with little ones was easy! I made a grass observation data collection sheet that looked like this: Students wrote their names and colored in the grass pictures we were working on coloring a page using real colors; as you can see that is an area of need J and color the cups to look like their plants.
Then, I taped it to the bulletin board so students can see the progress. Imagine my excitement when the students were actually using vocabulary from the text to describe what they were seeing! There was a lot of discussion about stems and soil and roots.
And some students lift the cup up and noticed the roots at the bottom! When planting seeds, I definitely recommend using clear plastic cups for this activity.
Students were able to visibly see the different parts of a plant. Click the images to download the worksheets that I used for this activity!
Please share your plant stories in the comments section.Using the talk 4 writing planning phases, this is a plan for a year 2 class. Some resources added too.

Following on from my post about planning your learning environment I thought I’d write a little bit about the Leuven scales for emotional well being and involvement (developed by the Research Centre for Experiential Education at Leuven University, under the supervision of Professor Ferre Laevers).
These are two sets of indictors that should be considered when planning any educational setting. A retelling of the popular fairy tale that mixes live action and animation. This Jack and the Beanstalk One-and-Done project will fit right into your study of fairy tales! 3 choices for the recording sheets and 2 writing pages!
