I recently visited the School of the Incarnation in Gambrills, Maryland. Special thanks to Betsy Werthmann for all her hard work in making the day run so smoothly. For Kindergarten and first grade, I read “Mallory the Forgetful Duck”, we talked about local waterfowl, and children made their own baby birds and nests. For 2nd through 5th grade, I read “Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay”, we talked about the amazing oysters, and children made their own little oysters out of coffee filters. All in all, a great day!!!
