We are still going strong with our farm unit. The kids went nuts over these gardens today. We started off by reading this emergent reader together and answering the questions on each page. Then I let them make their own gardens. They turned out so cute! When I made my example I glued all the vegetables down but the kids had the idea to make the soil into a pocket so they could pull the veggies out of the soil and plant them again. I snapped these pics before they added their writing but they wrote all about what veggies they put in their gardens.  Click here to grab the book.
