Part of our fun when learning about the letter g and its /g/ sound has involved getting into our garden. We certainly got grubby and had lots of fun planting our seedlings. We even planted a gardenia bush. The ground was quite dry and hard so we had to use big muscles and lots of perseverence to get the holes deep enough and we gave the ground a big drink of water before we planted each plant. We were careful not to damage the roots or the leaves of the plants so that they can still get their sunshine through the leaves and their water and nourishment from the soil. We also know that if it doesn’t rain enough we will have to water the plants each day. We have a special watering can that makes the water look just like raindrops or a shower. Such concentration and care to carefully extract the plant from its pot!
After our successful gardening session we put our landscaping skills to work in the the sand pit – just for a bit more fun. I happened to notice that Charlotte and Indigo even included a working waterfall in their sandpit garden. What a shame I missed the photo of it! You will just have to use your imagination.
