Planting seeds with my Kinder Kids

I am a full time Kindergarten teacher. In my room we are always busy learning and creating something! This week we have been learning about plants. I received my March issue of the Family Fun magazine in the mail last week. Family Fun always has some really great ideas that I can use in my classroom. I was really excited to see several activities involving plants. I am always excited to try something new! This is what we created this week!

Basically, it is just a baseball card holder. We planted 3 rows of 3 different kinds of seeds. I had 2 kids at a time come up and help me with each pocket. They were excited and very eager to plant their seeds! Now they can hardly wait to see them start sprouting! I will post a picture in a week or two after they have sprouted!

  1. What a cute idea! I'll have to stop by and see them when they sprout. :D

  2. I will have to stop by too. :) I am boring. Bags on their desks. My kids are itching to see something growing. :)

  3. So fun! We did this when I taught 1st grade too! Kids always love doing things like this. Thanks for stopping by!


  4. That is a great idea! So clever! Visiting from Blue Cricket Design and I am a new follower!
    Have a great week!

  5. What an amazing idea. I stopped subscribing to Family Fun when they raised the price for Cdn. subscribers, and you have reminded me how much I miss the magazine.

  6. aw what a cute idea! i love finding other kindergarten teachers :o) I'm a new follower now!

  7. This looks great. I think we're going to do their other planters - the plastic bottle ones. We'll see how it goes.

  8. I need to use that for myself! Great idea!

  9. Hey cutie,
    Great idea!! I am featuring this on my blog on Monday.--connie,
