Today was a busy day learning about seeds. We studied photographs of seeds and noticed similarities and differences of size, color and shape. We read several great books about seeds and a poem too. In the afternoon, we used hand lenses to look closer at fruit and vegetables. We removed the seeds and counted them. We had fun holding sugar snap peas up to the light and SUBITIZING! We just can't get enough of subitizing! We even looked inside a cactus fruit. Miss Wolfe found out the hard way that cactus fruit really comes from a cactus! Ask me about the seed investigation we did. Later this weekend our website will be updated for the new quarter. We'll have pictures of our seed investigation too!
Be sure to check your child's folder today for picture order form with the photographs that were taken of your child a couple weeks ago. There is an access code on the sheet as well. I put the sheet in each folder so hopefully it made it home!
Have a great weekend!
