Bring Spring into your Classroom!

Spring has Sprung in our Classroom!


Hello! It's Gloria from 2 Scoops of Kindergarten! We are very busy in our kindergarten room!  Right now we have chick eggs in the incubator, butterflies coming next week and planting seeds happening right now!  What fun! 

Every chance we get we try and integrate Science into our curriculum. One of our required assessments in kindergarten is for our students to write an expository paper. 

The writing prompt is "How do you plant a seed?" So before the kinders start to write, we read a lot of wonderful books about flowers and seeds. Here are a few:

 From Seed to Plant by Gail Gibbons
From Seed to Plant by Allan Fowler
Planting a Rainbow by Lois Elhert
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle


Then we plant seeds. One way to show the labeling of a plant is to use a cd case, like this one.

This year we even have a green house where we are taking care of our plants before we plant them in the school's garden outside. 


Now we have some background knowledge of how to plant a seed. 
Here is the graphic organizer we use and an example of one filled out.  This is what we will be doing in the next couple weeks.

 

These organizers are a part of the product Kindergarten Expository Writing. You can view this product here. This product can be used in a K-2 classroom.
