I hope you are all having some luck with your shoebox gardens. The children really enjoyed putting them together in hopes that we might see some flowers start to bloom. Remember, when you do get a bloom, you need to repot it. They won't last in the shoebox!
On that note, when the children made the shoebox gardens, they got to look at the seed packets to choose what kind and color of flowers they wanted to grow. They all seemed to take a lot of time in choosing just the right ones, for just the right reasons. When Jack's mom came to get him, she asked him what would be growing in his shoebox garden. He thought a second and then said, "I don't know...I guess a shoe plant." As a woman, I know that if Jack grows a "shoe plant" he will indeed be set for life!
Yesterday morning, as I walked into school, I headed right to Ms. Carly's room to say good morning. Alli looked at me with the biggest smile on her face and said, "Ms. Lori! You're wearing clothes!!" I have no idea what that meant or where it came from, but she was so, so proud of me for it! I thought Ms. Carly was going to have to leave the room!
Thanks to everyone who made a point to dress your children for "Character Day!" They enjoyed it so much and it was such fun to see them all in costume. Check out our picture blogs to see the photos of our day!
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine and warm weather!
