Room 3's Sunflowers

Our sunflowers have been growing really big! To help them grow we used stakes and tied the plants up. They have grown really big now. Have you seen them outside room 3? The sunflowers are taller than us and they are starting to flower. Everyday we look to see how many sunflowers are out. We still water our plants and look after them. We LOVE having sunflowers outside our room.

    I love the pictures of your sunflowers. We planted some here in New York City on Earth Day (April 22nd) and they are still very tiny. Did you do something special to help yours grow so big?

  6. Fantastic! I live in St. Joseph, Missouri where spring is just getting started. My irises are just about to bloom here. However, I love Sunflowers. It always amazes me how the flowers seem to follow the sun--turning throughout the day. It is a beautiful sight. What is your favorite part about raising sunflowers?

  7. It is wonderful to walk up to the classroom each school day to be greeted by such vibrant flowers. Alexis has pointed them out to me and how much they are growing. It has created a lot of interest and vocabulary.

  9. Your sunflowers are awesome! Our science class shared seeds with my daughters' class two years ago. We planted them in spring and in fall we saved some seeds to replant the next year. We're on the third generation now and we have tons of sunflowers! My daughter and I are planning to try to make sunflower butter this fall. We never heard of it before but our school has given up peanut butter and now serves "sun butter" made from sunflower seeds. My daughter is allergic to peanuts and all nuts so we see this as a positive change. Go sunflowers!

  15. Those are really tall sunflowers! I've never seen them grow so big. You should maybe roast the seeds so you can eat them.

  19. Dear PHS,

    I think this is so cute to see all the kids caring and watering the plants. I wish we had some sort of plant in our school or outside our school that our class owned. Well you guys are lucky. Thank-You!

  21. That looks so awesome. Those flowers are so big. You should make your own sunflower seeds. I just might have to try that. I really like this activity. From Ben.
