I was wandering around the delight that is the Language Garden blog and felt uplifted by what I saw and read there. It just made a connection in my brain and was so fresh and ... well enchanting.
Then today in class as they were trying to make sentences out of word cards I'd given them ... they started to connect the days of the week words and the afternoon, morning, evening words and something in my head clicked. The next thing we were growing the bloom you see before you and I loved it! I always clean my board after a lesson. I think it's rude and inconsiderate not too but I was too proud of this... so I confess I left it for the next person to use that classroom!
