  • Large poster board for each student
  • Crayons, markers, glue, tape, scissors
  • Copies of vegetables and recipe “Garden of Virtues” for each student

A recipe for living with warm thoughts through the New Year

First, Plant 3 Rows of Peas:
Persistence, Patience, Peach of Mind

Next, Plant 4 Hills of Squash:
Squash Gossip, Squash Grumbling, Squash Selfishness, Squash Apathy

Then, Plant 3 Rows of Lettuce:
Let us be kind, Leet us be responsible, let us be respectful

No Garden is Complete Without Turnips:
Turn up with a smile; Turn up with a healthy attitude

Water regularly with confidence and love and
let your garden bring forth much fruit.

If we could all remember to cultivate this, no challenge would be too great;
And what a wonderful world this would be!
