This week our theme is fairy tales. I started off day one with Jack and the Beanstalk. I made this very large beanstalk outside my classroom door to get my kids thinking about what we would be learning this week. I also left a little note outside the door for when they arrived. I tweaked this just a bit and got the letter idea from
Babbling Abbey. She did something similar for her Wizard of Oz unit. The kids loved this and it is a cute display.
We also planted lima bean seeds and are observing our plant growth. I got these cute Lima Bean Experiment books from teachers pay teacher. You can find the link for her fairy tales unit at http://www.firstgradebrain.com/ Her unit has lots of cute ideas that I will be posting throughout this week! I will be posting more pictures tonight from my home computer.
