Thank you for sharing this! What a great resource and very thought provoking. With Common Core, all students need to be writing more non-fiction. This is a great way to hold teachers accountable for having children write non-fiction every day.
Hello. I am a teacher in a suburb outside Toronto, and I was wondering if you could give me more details about the program, specifically how you manage the growing season to work with the school year. I know your program is for schools in New York, but I was thinking I could create a similar experience for my students on my own. Any advice?
We rented a campervan (there was 4 of us) in Alice Springs then flew to Cairns (it was cheaper to fly then take the bus) and rented again and drove to Sydney. We were able to avoid some parking fees by staying in the pull offs for motorist except in the bigger cities. When we went the Australian dollar was weaker $1 US got you $1.15. Now it’;s 1 to 1. Sorry
