My Seed to Plant Project and Sort of Visual Plans for the Week

24 March 2013
I am off next week for Spring Break.  When we get back, I would like to start planning for our plant unit.  I decided to revamp my My Seed to Plant Project packet.  I added some crafts to go with read alouds and the "Seed to Plant Observation Log."  Click below to check it out on TpT.  Re-download if you purchased this packet last year!

 For directions on how to make the newspaper seed cups, check out Garden of Eden's post here!
This donation letter can be free in my plans download :)

These two crafts are extension activities meant to be used after reading How Does Groundhog's Garden Grow by Lynne Cherry.

 This sunflower craft is an extension activity to be used after reading Sunflower House by Eve Bunting or This is a Sunflower by Lola M. Schaefer.


On to my plans for the week...

As you can see, these are not my usual plans, but I did not want to leave you hanging.  I also hope to hit the gym and meet up with friends.  I just did not want to put it in writing and overcommit for my week of non-commitments.

BTW - I am no expert on DoJo but DeeDee inspired me to check it out.  I think it will be good for the one credit course I am teaching.  

You can click the plans to download and grab the freebie.   Have a great week!

  4. Awesome unit!! I too am going to be doing a seed to plant unit upon our return.. I will also be sleeping late...hehe.. Enjoy the break.. and the spring snow coming our way!! Yuck!

  5. I am glad that I am not the only one who has not finished up her taxes!! My plant unit is right after spring break, too. One of my favorites! This year I am looking for a small shelf unit to put on the counter in front of one of my windows, so I can grow things I have not been able to, because I have not had enough room.

  6. I am so sad my spring break is over! I need a vacation from my trip to Mexico! The groundhog story is in my basal!

  7. Hi. I've looked over your visual plans when you post them. They look really great.
    How long do you work on a given set of plans each week?
    Enjoy your week off.

  15. family first think anything not based on economic reality is doomed to failure. Whether it’s farming, mining, tourism or small business, it is a truism that capital goes where it is made welcome and stays where it gets looked after. And whilst Australia is indeed blessed with abundant natural resources, Australia’s real wealth is not beneath the ground, it is between the ears! family first believes property rights, free markets, voluntary arrangements and effective safety nets provide the best opportunity for Australia and Australians to prosper.
