Garden Storytelling at Hollenbeck


Students at Hollenbeck are working on English comprehensive this month, so we took those skills into the garden. First, we read a short story about a boy how starts his own garden. We had a brief discussion about the story as we read. Then students made up their own garden stories. The students were incredibly creative, coming up with all sorts of stories! One student wrote about a pepper who felt alone because it was the only red pepper surrounded by green ones, several students wrote about children growing their own vegetables and sometimes getting to eat them, another wrote about a flower who desperately wants to be picked for a bouquet, and there were so many more!
