My first picture book Weeds Find A Way will be out on February 4 and on Christmas Eve, as I lay in bed sick with the flu, my husband brought in a package from the doorstep — my book!! An early copy!
We may not think of weeds this way, but they’re a valuable educational resource — and they’re free! Download curriculum about weeds — Science, Common Core Writing, Art, and Social-Emotional Development activities — on my website at www.cindyjensonelliott.com so you can use weeds as an amazing — and, yes, sometimes annoying — resource.
Here are a few weeds living in my garden this week: purslane, a dandelion relative, grasses, stinging nettle, and cheeseweed.
