| A Letter written to Mother Earth|
Last week, I read one of my favorite picture books, Dear Children of the Earth, to the students in my class. It is a beautiful story written as a letter from the Earth to those of us who have the privilege of being inhabitants on this amazing planet. After we read the story, students took the time to write letters back to "Mother Earth." The writing above is one such letter. This Monday, April 22nd, is the official Earth Day. My students and I will be celebrating the day by making recycled paper and taking time to clean up our school grounds. Last week we planted annual flower seeds under lights, in the hope of planting them as the spring unfolds. Happy Earth Day! Take some time to celebrate this amazing little home of ours in the universe on Monday and everyday you have a chance!
