We read one of my favorite books to begin our unit about seeds. We read The Story of Frog Belly Rat Bone, by Timothy Basil Ering. This book was the author's first book, and it is great. The story is about a little boy who visits a dump called Cementland. It's gray and dirty. He finds a a treasure, locked in a box. The attached note says, "Put my wondrous riches into the earth and enjoy." Ask me to tell you what the wondrous riches were, and what makes the valuable.
Here's the author, Timothy Basil Ering, talking about what inspired him to write this book.
We looked at our ten cube measuring stick and estimated how long our feet were. Rather than trying to measure our own foot, we took a shoe off and traced our shoe on paper. Then we made an estimate as to how long our shoe was. We checked our estimate with cubes, then cut out and colored our foot.
