Hi Garden Families,
Thank you all who attended our play on Saturday. We are so proud of all our students! They practiced long and hard and each one of them gave their all on Saturday! Thank you to our homeschool parents and students who came daily the last three weeks. It made a difference for the children and the quality of the play as well.
Last week was a busy week of play practice and prop making. The Upper grade students dyed the fire silks for the play and the Lower grades wet felted Iduna’s golden apples. The children also modeled the life cycle of a butterfly in clay while enjoying a story about a little green caterpillar’s metamorphosis. We played in the creek and had a wonderful wetlands walk with Ki Sonya where we discovered a baby turtle, water spiders, tadpoles and a dragonfly nymph among many other interesting nature friends.
As the weather warms up, the children get wetter during creek play. Please help your child come prepared with extra clothes and a wet bag for those wet items. It is also the time to change from rain boots to closed-toe, rubber-soled water shoes if desired.
Ki Melissa and Ki Kathee
