Down on the Farm
After reading the book Big Red Barn children were given the opportunity to create their own Big Red Barn scene.
This child used watercolors, permanent markers and collage material to create her scene.
The children are still observing the progress of our beans in the jar and recording what what they are seeing.

Here's what happened last week
We had a group discussion about planting after we tallied which bean we thought would grow the tallest.
After we planted a variety of bean so the children could see how they grow.
The bean jar was placed in the science center with a glow light handing above it.
Day 5 the beans had already began to get roots on them and the children documented what they were seeing.
At work time the children painted a carpet tube different shades of green so that we could turn it into a beanstalk.
The beanstalk was placed in the science center next to the bean jar.
Children measured the beanstalk using Jack and Giant foot prints, they then recorded their findings.
During small group time we worked on farm yard rhyming words.
We also worked on saying and writing our numbers.

Measuring how tall the Beanstalk was in the classroom turned out to be a very exciting and fun hands on learning activity. I am always looking for ways to develop children's understanding about measurement. How Many Foot Prints was a hit.
