Variation: Flip TEN-Fun addition card game from Guided Math. Kids line up cards in four rows of five. Then, they flip two cards over. If the sum of the two cards equals 10, they keep the cards and replace the cards with two more from the deck. The game ends when there are no more matches left.

He is very friendly offers me a big smile, “Is that your little girl?” Boo is too busy working to notice what is going on.

I write for a small community newspaper. When I go out on 'assignment' Boo usually comes with. The spot we were dispatched to was a corner lot under a giant billboard where a local woman has turned blight into beauty. But not everyone sees it as such, the City wants the tall flowers gone. That is the story I was sent to write.
In the garden Boo wrote her own.
The main character is a snail.
Which Boo tried to feed to the hens
but they wanted nothing to do with it.
