What we’re reading in my 3rd grade ELD class this Spring! We just finished Chapter Two. It’s about a little night fairy that hates bats. Well, she should, one of them broke her wings and now she has scars. She is living in an old giantess’ garden in a cedar birdhouse. She just discovered her stinging spell by stinging a squirrel! This action packed tale interlaced with perfectly timed imagry paintings has all of our imaginations flying with Flory.
I celebrated today and the time shift by planting this with my daughter. She added the ducks and bowling pin because she said the flowers needed company. The soil ended up a little too moist but hopefully we’ll continue to have some sunshine and the container will dry itself out a bit. The fun part was mixing the soil with the water/miracle grow/plant food mix in the wheelbarrow and then pouring it into the planting beds. Then, we dug holes and planted. It was a comfortable, sunny day in the Bay and I’m currently still enjoying the whether.
