Grades 1/2 March 27 - 31

Hi Garden Families,

It was a beautiful spring week at The Garden School!  We enjoyed a lot of outside time at the creek.  The children are ready to dive back into full-on creek play (literally), so please be sure your child comes with extra clothes, shoes and a bag to keep wet gear contained in backpacks.  You may choose to send your child to school with bug spray if desired as we will be spending most our day outside in our forest classroom following break. 😊

This past week we finished our math block with the red gnome named Divide.  The children quickly picked up on the concept of dividing amounts into equal groups and we drew many connections between division and the other three mathematical operations we have studied.

The children had lots of fun during pentatonic flute classes this week with Mr. Ben.  He had them jumping and moving to the notes, told funny stories, and had the children enjoying their daily lessons.   In Handwork, they are continue knitting projects with good success.  Our garden is taking off and the chicken coop is nearing completion.  The children have had lots of fun practicing yoga with Ms. Nina on Wednesdays as well.

When we return to school following break, we will dive into our last Language block combined with Nature Studies while sharing Native American legends. 

Have a lovely and safe break!

Warmly,

Ms. Melissa
