We read the story of "Pumpkin Jack" by Will Hubbell in the fall. In this story, Tim carved a pumpkin for Halloween and named him Jack. After Jack began to rot, Tim set him out in his garden and watched him slowly shrivel and decay. As the winter came, Jack disappeared and Tim was sad. When the spring came, Tim saw that Jack had sprouted and he took care of Jack's vine all summer. In the fall, Tim found his Pumpkin Jack again! So .........we did the same thing with OUR Pumpkin Jack and put him out in the school garden after Halloween. Look what we found coming up in the middle of our garden on Wednesday - It's our Pumpkin Jack! How cool is that???
My class gave me this beautiful hibiscus for my end of year gift! Isn't it beautiful? My Room Mom enlisted the aid of our art teacher and the kids all signed their name on the pot and used their thumbprints to make the flowers - cute, cute! Now I just have to make sure that I keep the plant healthy over the summer!
Happy summer to everyone and I'll be back in a few weeks - don't forget me!
Peace and blessings,
