California's State Flower - The Golden Poopy

We're learning all about the great state of California in social studies this week. We're studying our state bird, tree, flower and our flag. 

Do you know about California's state flower, the Golden Poopy? You should have heard my class laughing this afternoon. They never thought they would hear their teacher utter the word "poopy" in class, let alone write it on the board. 

My students received an important lesson in spelling this afternoon. You see, friends, one letter can make a huge difference. It's the Golden POPPY, not the Golden POOPY!

It's a short post, but let it be a lesson to you all. One letter can completely change the meaning of a word. Spelling is important and it's best you double check your work!
