The national summer reading program this year is Dig Into Reading, and we are completely ready to dig in! If there is one thing my boys are always ready to do – it's getting messy. They love to dig in to anything and everything!!
I've joined with a group of bloggers to bring you some excellent book related ideas that center around the Dig Into Reading Theme.
Throughout the summer we are sharing book related activities about gardening, underground animals, construction sites, and treasure hunting. I'm sure you'll be inspired by these wonderful bloggers!
For the Dig Into Gardening theme, our book choice was obvious to me. The Curious Garden by Peter Brown. This is one of our all time favorite books. The story is wonderful and the illustrations are incredible. The boys enjoy it almost as much as I do!
To go along with the book, I decided to use 3-Part-Cards from the Gardening Pack at Homeschool Creations. I printed them and cut them out. Then I sought out the gardening items we have to match and set them all out.
