good honest work
Compared to many of our friends, we did only a little to educate and inspire, but there was some work involved. To see our investment of time, money and energy come to fruition leaves (heh heh "leaves") me with a feeling similar to that captured in this poem from Amy Ludwig Vanderwater, which my kindergarteners are currently building at the Pocket Chart and illustrating in their Poetry Anthologies. She posted it last year and it went straight into my classroom. Thanks, Amy...and thanks, Maryland!
If you're a teacher and you want a copy of my "Raking" pocket chart, just let me know and I'll send it to you. The roundup today is over at Think Kid, Think! with Ed DeCaria--jump in!
