Jack and the Beanstalk

This week we've been reading this Jack and the Beanstalk story by Nick Sharatt. It's a lift-the-flap book which the children always love. It also came with an accompanying cd so we can play the story again during rest time. This version of the fairytale classic differs a bit than the usual story. For a start the golden goose is a hen and the giant isn't so much into "I'll grind your bones to make my bread." My son had been doing a fairy tale focus at his school this term and that's all I…

Plantes The kids loved watching bean seeds sprout. We put five beans in a ziploc bag with a folded wet paper towel. The bags were taped to our classroom window (with names written in permanent marker).

This week we began the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. Today I thought I would share a few of the math activities we have been doing. They are obvious ideas but perhaps new in the application in this story! I wanted to take the concepts of "enormous" and "giant" and bring them to life with math. The Giant's Hand and Estimation I had a super large hand photocopied on paper that we estimated how many beans would fit in the palm of the "giant's" hand. Guesses ranged from 4 to 1000. We counted…

Jack and the Beanstalk Play Dough!

As part of our Jack and the Beanstalk Growing topic, I made a batch of play dough following my usual recipe (see at the bottom of the post) then coloured half brown and half green. I set it out with two little terracotta pots, some green craft sticks and green pipe cleaners, a bowl of dried french beans and some little garden tools we had from another set. These are some of the things the girls did with it.... Recipe: 2 cups flour 1 cup salt 2 tsp cream of tarter 2 cups water 2 tbsp oil Mix…

Start with one "magic" bean taped to the bottom along with an invitation to draw what it would become. Reading Jack in the Beanstalk together would be a nice rainy day addition to this project.
