Students will have time for exploration, social interaction, and creative/imaginative play with a themed nature study each week. Every class follows a predictable routine. We will begin each morning with free play and then gather together for opening circle with song, snack and stories. We like to play nature-connection games, expanding our senses and awareness of nature all around us. Then we go on our themed adventure or investigation, exploring along the trails, into the swamp, or along the lakeside. As students hike uneven terrain, climb, and balance on stones, they develop gross motor skills. After the adventure, we hike back to the fire circle for lunch and a time of sharing. In the afternoon we encourage more imaginative free play. Students will come back together for nature journaling time. We close each class with story and song around the fire circle. Sharing discoveries and learning from one another develops our sense of community.
