Description

Set the tone for positive classroom behavior with kids in grades K through 5. To be read aloud to younger students or read independently by 3rd thru 5th graders, teachers can establish clear expectations about both positive and negative behaviors. Using garden imagery, the story teaches children how to ignore distractions, refocus, and stay on task at school. Classmates Maci and Trey love to have a good time, but it sometimes gets them in trouble. When their teacher, Mrs. Julian catches them behaving badly, she warns them “flowers fade every time a bad choice is made.” Mrs. Julian explains the importance of making positive choices – and growing a garden in your mind.

This richly illustrated picture book offers valuable life lessons to young readers so they can take responsibility for their behavior and “grow their garden” in school and at home. Teachers will welcome this imaginative approach to behavior management. 40 pgs.
