"Seeds, Start Growing!"
This favorite line from a "Frog & Toad" book was repeated several times after my future farmers of America finished planting this year's garden seeds. We started them in peat pellets, and after only a few days we can see little sprouts!
The kids really got into it this year, making their own garden markers from plastic knives. We figured out the plastic dome wouldn't fit over the knives, so they were pulled out and saved for later. My daughter made a map so we can remember what was planted where in our little greenhouse. Once we get things growing, spelling will be next to master.
