In Nursery we have started our new unit of study: Plants!
What is a plant? How do plants grow? What happens when we plant a seed? What do they need to grow? We will be working on answering all these questions and more!
This week we will be putting some white beans in zip lock bags and we will watch them grow roots and a sprout. In order to develop the students phonemic awareness we will also be reading this lovely poem about a growing flower.
Also this week we will grow our very own plant! In order to do this, we ask parents to please bring a small clay pot to school someday this week. In class we will paint it, put soil in it, put some seeds in, water it, place it in a sunny spot and hopefully a plant will grow!
