See How My Garden Grows

Today's post is short story number four. Here's some discussion questions for you to ask after your child reads the story.

  • What kind of things can you grow in a garden?
  • Would you need a large area outside to plant a garden?
  • Can you grow things inside too?
  • What things would you need to plant a garden?
  • What things does a plant need to grow?
  • How long do you think it would take for a tree to grow very tall?

HINT: Combine this reading activity with a science activity. Buy some seeds and help your child plant them outside in their own special garden (it doesn't have to be a large area) or in small pots in the house. Give them the responsibility of caring for the plants.
