Soooooo....here's what happened...
We went to water our plants after lunch. Mrs. Rainer went with us. - Jaycelyn
We looked on the shelf when we walked in the room and our plants were gone. - Ivy-Grace
There were some other plants, but they weren't ours. Those plants were big and ours aren't that big yet. - Jaycelyn
We know ours are smaller. - Ivy-Grace
They had these names...Mrs. Rainer readed them but they didn't say "Mrs. Erickson's class." - Marie
We looked down low and up high and didn't see them. - Ivy-Grace
And on the bottom, too. - Jaycelyn
We went to the playground and telled Mrs. Erickson, "Our plants are gone! Our plants are gone!" - Ivy-Grace
I wondered if someone moved them out into the sun. - Marie
I thought they might be in the courtyard. - Jaycelyn
We wondered where our plants might be....
At the farm.
I think Mrs. Riddle took them home.
I think they jumped away!
I think they're in the courtyard.
I think they jumped in my car and went home with me!
That's the oldest trick in the world!
In my brother's pocket!
But they couldn't fit in there!
Mrs. Riddle might have took them because they were taking a long time to grow.
I think we should go out to the farm and see if we can find them.
How will we know we found them?
They're about this big...(holding up fingers).
Some stems had 8 leaves.
They will be green.
I don't think they have flowers yet!
Put on your detective eyes and let's head to the farm to see if we can find our plants!
Plant detectives, meet me on the line! Here we go!
