Day 12: #beauty
I love flowers, but my late kitty had a habit of chewing on them (Subject seen here studiously pretending to be a still life painting until I go away), so I rarely got them. I'm grateful for seeing them in nature--and for the rare times my husband gets them for me!
“Chrysanthemum” by Kevin Henkes is a sad, but fulfilling F story about a young mouse named Chrysanthemum who absolutely loves her beautiful, long name! She begins to get made fun of by a few of her classmates which results in her despising her name. This Notable Children‘s Award winning book would make a great RA to teach good morals. #UCFLAE3414F19
My princely sons are known as drones-
Not one of those boys ever phones!
When it's too crammed,
Then I take a wing.
With such a life-
Who needs a king?!“
I would used this book in my classroom because it could spark interest in one of the children and further create questions about bees that I could use to incorporate in my lesson plans.
