I put the "ER" in TEACH

Science chapter this week : Plants/Flowers

Science lesson for the day "Observe" different types of plants and flowers in your yard.

As I stand outside and stare (pretty blank, I might add) I notice....We have no plants. We also have no flowers.

What I did notice? weeds
We have weeds.
We have lots of weeds.

(Some even smell like big girl's armpits *onion-y-ish*) Hey, those were her words not mine.

thinking....
thinking....

Conclusion: Weeds are bad, kids. Weeds are very bad and prevent plants/flowers from growing.
Pull every weed that you can see.

.....while mom sits here and eats 1/2 of this package of bonbons.

Oh wait, I just came up with our math lesson for the day--Fractions!

I love it. I have some weeds in my yard they can come destroy. I also have no flowers to observe in my yard, they have all croaked :)

I love your teaching technique.

One whole bon-bon minus 1/2 a bite = oh heck, forget it. I'll just eat another bon-bon!

Love it! You know what else is good? Telling your kiddos whomever pulls the most weeds...gets a prize. ;-P
