For two weeks (not including weekends), we will be sharing a daily post with an idea of a summer activity, summer crafts for kids or maybe even some summer snacks. I am excited to have some amazing bloggers on board helping me with this series!
We are also running a two week long Linky Party where you can share your Summer Activities too! At the bottom of this post, be sure to link up! I have a Pinterest Summer Board where I am sharing all these activities and some of the party link ups too so be sure to stop by and find some great ideas!
To make the data sheet, I folded a piece of construction paper in fourths and labeled each section Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4. The kids drew what they saw under week 1. I had Kayla write a couple of sentences telling me about it. Noah told me what he wanted to say and I wrote it down.
Today we recorded our observations for week 2. The roots have grown like crazy and we have leaves! The kids are so excited about their pumpkins!
They drew their pumpkin plant and wrote about it. Noah said, ‘My leaves are starting to spread. And it’s getting bigger and bigger. It’s so exciting!’
Next week I will try and guide their writing so it’s a little more specific. It’s the teacher in me….did I tell you that in my previous life I was a teacher?
Pretty soon, these little sprouts will move to our garden. Hopefully we will have some cheery little pumpkins to brighten up our back yard…and then to make a pie! Yum.
