In other plant news, I have a bunch of parents that love ordering from Scholastic Book Clubs this year. I love it because with every order online we get a free book for our classroom! I have been saving up my points all year and scored a bunch of non fiction readers to go with our plants unit, as well as our upcoming unit on butterflies.

In other news… we just finished our “How-To” Writing Unit and it was so special to me because in this unit our little kinders really become authors and illustrators. We ended with a writing celebration…the kids were amazing! How hard it is to be 5 years old and have to stand in front of 60 adults and read your book (in a microphone no less) with a smile! They did and they were fabulous!
