the surprise daffodil day.

Every year I get what I like to call 'the surprise daffodil day.' As if out of nowhere, sunny clumps of yellow appear everywhere. This day was yesterday.

One school I worked at planted daffodil bulbs with the children towards the end of the year. The following spring they were able to take them home just in time for Mother's Day. The children followed the whole process patiently until their surprise daffodil day came along. Product represents a sense of achievement, but process is the real deal and where learning progresses the most.

A little late blooming this year but I knew they would make it.

  1. I love that idea. We planted radishes in kindergarten and I can still remember how proud I was of my little runt!
