As summer draws to an end many teachers are returning to school to prepare their classrooms for their incoming students. Emmeline Cook second-grade teacher Madeline Knoblock ’18, of Oshkosh, said it is important to create a space that doesn’t intimidate but creates a positive learning environment for her students.
Last year Knoblock’s students won the Readers Roundup Garden Creation contest after they submitted a garden design proposal to the Sheboygan Bookworm Gardens. The students’ design– based on Mossy, Jan Brett’s story about a turtle with a beautiful garden growing on her shell–is on display now at the gardens.
Fueled by a love of books, Knoblock looks forward to the 2019-2020 school year to inspire the next wave of second graders.
