The Paper Whites Bloomed!
On the first day back from Winter Holidays we planted paper white bulbs with our children. Each day they came to school, we had a number of eager children checking out the bulbs to see if they had grown.
Mrs. Bombardier placed a number of measuring items (standard and nonstandard) and a tracking sheet next to the bulbs and encouraged the children to record their observations.
This past week the bulbs finally bloomed and filled our classroom with a wonderful spring smell! The children were amazed at how tall the bulbs had grown! Many were eager to measure the plant and compare it with their previous recording.
