Making the World Beautiful....

It does not seem like we have been in school for a month already! I feel like time is flying by so fast.

But anyway, one of our reading response activities this week was for the book:

This is one of my favorite books. In it, Miss Rumphius makes 3 promises to herself: she will see the world, live by the sea and make the world a more beautiful place. Not bad goals to have!

So I asked the kids to think creatively, what would they do to make the world more beautiful. This is what they came up with. I do like that they are starting to give me more of a variety of answers now. :)

Pin It!


  1. How wonderful and nice and beautiful! And maybe some of them will continue to think about making the world more beautiful.

    1. I hope so Sara! :) Thank you for your comment!

  2. What a great way to help them see how they can help. You are such an inspiration. Today, while I was reading a book out the back of my mind I was thinking, "What would Miss Trayers do to have kids apply something from this book?" Thank you for that!

  4. I honestly didn't love it when I first read it, but it has grown on me! I really like the message. It has me thinking myself...hmmm, what could I do? :)

  5. Those are lovely. I wish I could make the world more beautiful by doing magic, too:)
