Earth Day Aquarium Garden

I had never seen or heard of an AQUARIUM GARDEN before Earth Day last year.

About this time last year, I started seeing the ground being tilled and mounds of dirt being formed in an area of our school. I wasn't quite sure what was going on, but thought new foliage was probably being planted.

A garden of succulents was created. 

And then THESE appeared!















So, this is an AQUARIUM GARDEN. Aren't they FUN? An artist made the fish from recycled material. They have so much personality! You can't help but smile when you pass by.

I can't wait for Earth Day this year to see what else appears.

Spring is in the air with these two new Spring math problem solving packets.




These are math story problems with a Spring theme. The problems are aligned to the first grade Common Core Math Standards. Four sets of numbers are included for each story problem. The worksheets are great for small and whole group instruction. Completed worksheets can be used for math strategy discussions. You can get them here.
