  1. This is going to be my them this year... My bulletin board welcoming them says' " Look who's growwing on _______'s Vine!" Their names will be on little pumpins (then their pictures).
    I am putting the letters for the word wall on SEED PACKETS - A for Artichoke, B for Butternut Squash, C-Cabbage, etc! FUN!!

  3. I've seen a lot of garden/bug stuff, but I am doing a Backyard themed classroom and am looking for ideas. I am thinking about tree house and tire swing pictures but am not finding anything. Any ideas?

    1. Me too!!!! I have a beach umbrella, fall leaves sprinkled around, laminated ants crawling up and down walls, draped fabric in one area as an awning and I am looking for a tree stump. My walls have butcher paper painted like green grass half way up wiht 2 plastic white fences leaning against the walls. In the spring I will add butterflies, lady bugs, and spring flowers. I would love any suggestions!
