Discussion in 'Early Years' started by DinahL, Apr 22, 2007.

  1. Hey guys

    Am growing beans next week with my yr ones and would like to make a diary the children can use to record the growth of their beans.

    I have looked on the resource bank and cant seem to find one - was wondering if anyone had one they wouldnt mind sharing?! or you could give me info on making my own (im not great with computers!)

    we made our own, using clip art put a picture of a bean on the front cover, with words My bean diary 2007 a weekly record of growth by......................

    on back page I cut and stuck, steps and levels from K&U and maths, when they had finshed we then highlighted the area/level covered.

    If you have a digital camera its nice to photograph a bean each week and sequence the pictures for the children we did this with sunflowers last year. There is also a lovely book by Discovery World.
     
  5. Perhaps I could make one???

    Let me know exactly what you need (ie... how many pages, wot to include on each page... etc).

    I guess it would be A5 size - 2 pages to each A4 sheet that can be folded?

    Let me know what you all want!

    Yes its the one from Discovery World really good for showing the children
     
  9. Yes please Sparkle - Seed diary would be better so could be for other things apart from beans :eek:)
     
  10. PLEASE SPARKLE Pleeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaase!!!!!!!

    I have tried to come up with something using word and have been on the computer for hours but i am totally rubbish if im honest!!!

    I was thinking of a booklet which is A5 size - like you said with 2 pages to each A4 sheet which can be folded.

    It would be nice if each A4 page could be a weekly update of the bean/seeds progress with a space for the children to note the changes with their bean/seed in a drawing and also with some writing (maybe what they noticed? anything they did differently? added?). Also a bit where the children can measure the height of their bean to show the changes in height.


    Sorry if this doesnt make much sense but i have been on the comp for hours fighting with blooming microsoft word!!!
