    just love it, we read this today, I know what to do tomorrow

KMG-This is a great charting activity with plants and can be used toward the end of the lesson to ensure that the students understand the lesson. The parts of the plant and what the plants give are more complex complex concepts for kindergarten, but it is still okay to introduce and teach it. I just will not require reciprocation of the information in order to achieve mastery.
