Tuesday is the day to share a “Slice of Life” with Two Writing Teachers. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here. Thanks to Stacey, Anna, Beth, Tara, Dana and Betsey for creating that place for us to work collaboratively.
When I think of flowers, I think of all the possible varieties, colors and locations where they can be. Some plants need a lot of care while others seem to flourish with little or no attention necessary. Some flowers grow in rocky areas courtesy of birds and other animals that have left the seeds behind.
This weekend I had the pleasure of observing moonflowers on three successive nights. They are gorgeous white trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom ONE night for approximately 12 hours. Here is a picture of one blooming.

Many schools have been in session for awhile during this 2014-2015 school year. Other schools are beginning today.
What flowers will grow in your classroom?
What care will you provide to ensure that all are growing?
How can they all “BLOOM” and reach their full potential?
How many will bloom all year long?
How can we share the “blooms” with parents, family members and our entire community?
This post was also influenced by the book Mrs. Spitzer’s Garden.
