We had a great time reading the book and discussing key words such as author, illustrator, spine, soil, compost. Then we planted seeds into plantable containers with some careful instructions (No flooding! No tipping!). Students, teachers, and author had fun, memorable times with these book talks.
The day after one particularly sweet time, the teacher handed me a large manilla envelope containing an impressive stack of thank-you notes written by kindergarteners. Oh, the joy that was in that envelope!
|Dear Mrs. Middaugh, Thank you for the book and the seed. I hope you have a great day. From Anna.|
|I love you, Mrs. Middaugh. You are the best in the land.|
As classes start up this fall, I wonder what adventures the school year will bring.
