Muncha, Muncha, Muncha
Spring time is planting time! We can learn a lot from planting and taking care of a garden. You may wish to plant a garden outside, or start a window sill garden by planting in a cup. You can make observations about your growing seeds and learn about the things that plants need to grow and be healthy.

Writing

Draw a picture showing your favorite part of the story. Write a sentence about it. Practice counting syllables by going on a syllable scavenger hunt. Download the hunt from this link.

We can find the number of syllables in a word by clapping once for each “big part” of the word we hear. For example, clap the word “carrot.” CAR – ROT. 2 claps means 2 syllables. Using these pictures of fruits and vegetables, how many syllables are in each word? 

Make a garden!

Plant a windowsill garden. You may plant a seed in a cup and engineer a fence around it toprotect it from little munchers. Observe your seed daily. Record the changes that you see.
