They Might be Magic Beans

       A week ago Friday when we attended the Young Farmers Exhibit 
 we planted beans. 
We took care of them all week and was amazed how quickly they sprouted.
By Thursday all of them had poked out of the soil and were starting to reaching
        for the sun shining in the window.
I thought that this would be a great opportunity to introduce the story of 
Jack and the Beanstalk.  After reading the story together, we coloured pictures 
of castles, attached them to sticks and stuck them beside the beans.

Notice the one on the left?  
It’s already starting to wind around the stick.  
I wonder how tall it will be on Monday!


  1. Wow! How cool! I bet that's an experience they will remember. :)

    Not Just Child's Play

    1. It was exciting! I've never had seeds grow so quickly. By Monday morning most of them had grown up to the castles.
