Miss Rumphius - FIAR Co-op

After missing our last FIAR Co-op meeting, the kids were very excited to be back together with their book-reading buddies.  It was my turn to lead class, and the book we rowed was Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney.  I really enjoyed this title, and it had a great message...  "We can all do something to make the world more beautiful!"

During our meeting, we colored lupines, read the story, located Maine on the U.S. map, learned how seeds travel, finger painted, crafted flower bracelets, made floral bookmarks, and feasted on tulip cakes.  No doubt, we had an activity-filled morning.  Most of all, everyone had fun learning together.
