The Wonder of the Garden

                                                                          The Chives

A summer garden provides many rich learning experiences. The children watch their seeds bloom into glorious flowers. They sample the rich tastes of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and celery. Herbs are shared with the school chef.  And of course, with meticulous precision, they transfer the images of the wonders they see to paper.


  1. It is amazing for children to see a garden grow, to be able to feed the flowers, give them water. It is a great way for the children to understand that flowers and plants need food and water in order to grow, just like humans. It is also great for the children to see the final product and to be able to draw a representaion of it, very fun experience.~Sabrina

  2. First off I would like tto say supertb blog! I had a qjick question which
    I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I do enjoy writing butt it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure ouut how to begin.
    Anny ideas or hints? Thank you!

    1. Thank you! Writing is an integral part of like. Aside from this blog, I also write on - I'm also a children's author
      It's not easy and the first 15 minutes-I have them too sometimes-as I try to gather my thoughts. Just write what you feel and think, then go back and edit!
