I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Kindergartens come up with the sweetest things they are thankful for, like garbage trucks, the grocery man and ‘my teacher’! I love hearing them share their ideas! Wonderful fall weather led to some marvelous days outside last week. We ventured down to the creek at the bottom of the hill (and made it all the way back up!) counting woolly bears on our way. We got up to 13! There must be a woolly bear population explosion this year! Students got to finally use their whistles as we practiced what to do if you get lost in the woods. All LEAP students are working on finding creative ways to play, as alternatives to destructive or risky games with sticks. Here are some examples: sliding down trees, caring for critters, acting out stories with toy animals, and building things.
The week ahead: October 12-15
