If I Were a Log....

We read the book:

Which beautifully describes a great pattern in nature-a tree falls, decomposes and becomes the soil for a new tree to grow. The illustrations are really beautiful and it's a process that I don't think we consider very often. After reading the story and discussing the pattern and vocabulary, I asked the kiddos to imagine that they lived in that log, what would life be like from that perspective?

If I lived in a log, I would wish it wasn't so stinky. would transform into a bus

I would dream of My Little Pony

I would be glad animals live on me

I would paint my house lots of colors

I would roll.

Pin It!


  1. Isn't it great to already see the improvement in both their thinking and writing abilities? You do great things.

    1. It is great to see! One of the reasons I love teaching the little ones-you can see why you are doing it every day! :)
