the great noun search

is for nouns
the great noun search is on.
i read about this idea in a book my dad
bought me and brought me yesterday.
the kids are searching for ten nouns in the yard,
they are putting them in a pile,
we are going to assign adjectives to each noun
and they are going to write about the things they've
found. i've never seen so much enthusiasm to
do english/grammar!
we're expecting rain tomorrow
so this gives them time outside
and we're getting school
done as well!
oh, and the book, in case you're wondering,
here it is:

i just started it yesterday, but the very first chapter
talks about how
and we've been throwing some ideas about just
that around these parts lately,
so i think i could be on to something here!
