Verb Garden

As you know Juli and I love our school garden. But this garden can be created without any dirt!  We have been learning about verbs so my kids created a verb garden. Each student drew a flower.  In the middle is a noun of their choice.  Each petal is a verb that noun can do. The students love this activity.  It is a great and easy way to quickly see who "gets it."  Plus it looks really cute outside on our wall in the hallway. Here is what it looks like out in the hallway:
I had two boys get really into it...go figure it would be my boys! They made their flowers look like the animal they had picked. I thought they were so cute I had to share:
Aren't they adorable!  As you can see the bottom one has an adjective on one petal. We are still working on it!  He is an ESL (English as Second Language) student so I was pretty impressed with spelling of everything - I only helped with "cheetah."

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Juli is off cheering on Tennessee. I know - I don't get either! Have a good rest of the weekend and have a wonderful work week!
