The story had begun. Our family calls English peas – “green basketballs” (I don’t remember how that started, but that’s what we call them). FRitW’s story begins with a dropped green basketball and soon teams of 100 red Cardinals and 100 Blue Jays and playing basketball with a leaf net. They even have numbers on their feathers and a Black Capped Chickadee to act as referee.
FRitW dictated his story to me and has already illustrated it (all his own idea!). He has planned to mail it to someone special so I’ll also discuss addressing an envelope and writing a friendly letter. I think we can call this a successful bit of schooling – don’t you?
