Grades Oct 16 - 20

Hi Garden Families,

It is so nice to welcome in our cooler weather!  Please be sure your child/ren wear clothing appropriate for cooler mornings and warmer afternoons.  Also, now is the time to swap out water shoes for rubber boots as we will still being enjoying trips to the creek.  Finally, please label all you can of your child/ren’s outer wear.  It’s a big help for those items that get left behind during the day. 😊

We all enjoyed the week at school.  In Nature Study, the students learned and drew about invasive and native plants, while in Handwork the children worked steadily on their knitting.  It’s wonderful to see how much they have progressed so far this year!  In Spanish the children continue to play large and small group games while immersed in Spanish.  There is lots of laughter involved!  The first flute class was a great success as the students practiced one of the songs we will be singing at Martinmas on November 9th.  

This past week the children also wet felted hedgehogs as we continued our Human and Animal block and casted deer hoof prints found outside near our creek with Mr. Lee.  They wrote about the various animals as well as drew about them in their Master Books.  During the Jataka Tales block the students completed their reader books about cats and continued hearing, drawing and writing about the various tales.  The children also made wreaths out of kudzu as well as planted an herb garden for Ms. Nina with Ms. Kathee.

Warmly,

Ms. Melissa and Ms. Kathee
