News from the Forest

Nature K is in full gear and the class is enjoying the perfect weather as they make their way into the forest every day. They have taken up the challenge of being the caretakers of the forest and their compassion for the creatures they have encountered is extraordinary.

The current focus is on forest safety and gaining awareness and appreciation for the wonderful things nature has to offer. Last week, the students focused on “awakening their senses” to the textures, smells, sights and sounds around them. This included searching for specific textures, going on a silent walk, and searching for things that are camouflaged. They learned the meaning of “perseverance” and have discovered that they are getting stronger every day.
