Ms. Newman's Class's Literary Garden



Ms. Newman's class is planting a literary garden. In the garden, the plants will have something to do with fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and tongue twisters. For example, we are planting beans to go with Jack and the Beanstalk. We are growing pumpkins for "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin-eater". We are growing carrots for "Tops and Bottoms". Have you read the book, Holes? If you did, you would know onion are in it. Since it has been raining for two weeks, we have planted some seeds inside and they have started to germinate. Germinate means that the seed has sprouted. Some of our plants that we planted inside are watermelons, radishes, and peppers. When it stops raining, we can put the little plants in our big garden plot. We planted many different kinds of seeds. Even though some plants are big, the seeds are tiny. Our tallest seedling is two thumbs tall. Seedling means a small plant that has just sprouted. After our plants are no longer seedlings, they will look beautiful. Just like Ms. Newman's class! We hope you like our literary garden.

Your garden is going to be really COOL you are planting a variety of plants. It is cool how you are using the story Jack and the Beanstalk. I think it is nice that you are using fairy tales in your garden and I can not wait to see how nice it is in your garden area.
Can't wait to see your garden, Mrs. Lenard's CLass
