Seeds, Plants and Flowers.. Oh MY!

I'm thrilled to share a new resource for you.  My kids dove into this week long learning cycle and walked away with a strong understanding of seeds, plants and flowers.

I started each day with a KWL, if provided. The kids created their own sentences and shared with the class while I charted their response. Then, I introduce the topic of the day with a short Brainpop Jr video or with a book. After, we hit key vocabulary, developing our understanding of the topic. We followed up with a task for each lesson. On day two, take the time and really model the plant needs craft. It will be the one that needs redirection when cutting between the petals. My first graders completed the task independently. The following day, we began with what we learned from the previous day, completing the L in our KWL.

Case of Stripes {Low Prep Resources}

Hi Friends!  This week I am planning for a possibility that I might need to be out.  I have prepped sub tubs but used the resources already with my kids so I needed something quick and easy.  I decided to create a file that is super easy to implement for a themed day or last minute sub plans.

Here's what's included...
