Deep down he goes, the little gnome,
Deep down into his earthy home.
Deep Down among the roots he lives;
Such help to all the plants he gives.
He helps the seed to split its skin;
He helps the roots to settle in;
He helps the shoots to stand upright
And grow to reach the warm sunlight.
Sometimes he comes above the ground;
Sometimes his footprints can be found;
Sometimes, before the moon is up,
He drinks the dew from bluebell cups.
Look at all these adorable gnomes that are ready to be put into a garden gnome landscape!
3rd graders created these little guys, 2nd and 3rd graders also created clouds, trees, hedgehogs, mushrooms and painted the backgrounds of the mural.
Spotted mushrooms to complete the look
Holding a lantern
hedgehogs and trees with hand-shaped trunks..
Check at these ears! How fun!
Mural panels ready to be hung in the hallways, complete with clouds and painted flowers.
9 x 12 paper
scissors, glue, oil pastels, tempera paint
and lots of imagination!
