Friendship fruit salad
Our reading series has a story, Fruit is a Suitcase For Seeds. Each year the students bring in a fruit that we then share for a friendship fruit salad. This year we had mango, kiwi, watermelon, plum, strawberries, blackberries, and cantelope. We examine the seeds up close and then share our friendship with one another. YUMMY!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
