Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they
substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds, teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the
lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.

Summary: An original collection of 15 poems and paintings about baseball. Each verse in the booklet focuses on one element of the game of baseball, from the baseball to the position players, hitters, and even the fans. The beautiful paintings add to the poems by bringing the words to life, illustrating the movements of the players.
