Plant Cells

Who said that learning about plant cells should be boring? Learning about this subject can be fun by engaging the students in different hands-on activities and projects.

Here are the activities we had on this topic:

This activity is a part of my unit about plants. Click here to view it.

My studens also received a very exciting homework assignment. Their task was to make edible plant cells. Wow, the results were amazing!
See for yourselves.

 Children could not wait to try their own creations. We had a big "plant cell" celebration that day!

If you are looking for a new way to decorate your bulletin boards, then maybe you will like these.

I wanted to add a pinch of color to my posters and boards. After going through boxes of  art supplies, I came across ... Yes! Pom-poms! In no time I decorated the poster I created for school and everyone loved the results.
You might ask: WHY??? Well, because, first of all I live on an island :) and there are no Teacher Supply Stores here. And secondly, because I love everything DIY!

Students' Birthdays

It's been only a week since the school began, and we have already celebrated the birthdays of two of my students :)
Every year I put together so called "Birthday Folders" for my kiddos. They love them! It's such an inexpensive way to show you care :)

Birthday crown craft is not included in the pack. However, you can download all sorts of wonderful crown templates for free HERE.
