This week was our last Forest Monday. We read the book All the Places to Love by Patricia MacLachlan and talked about places we love– at home, school, and in our woods.
We wrote our last Forest Journal about the place we love best in the woods.
Isaiah: “I play Minecraft at my tree.”
Avery: “I love my tree because it is so peaceful.”
Henry: “I love the whole woods because it is beautiful.”
Ian: “My favorite spot is the climbing pine because I can fall in holes.”
Ainsley: “My favorite spot in the woods is the log down the hill.”
Isla: “I like to play on the pine tree because it is fun to play on.”
Willow: “I like the apples because it is yummy.”
Gregory: “My favorite spot is the stream because it is beautiful!”
And here are a few pictures from our last Forest Monday:
Ainsley took a big spill and Paisley helped cheer her up.
Dakota and Ian discovered how to pull up the whole plant, roots and all.
“Look, this plant has five leaves!” We also noticed they were shaped like hearts.
Willow and Dakota found a nightcrawler!
Willow in her Sit Spot.
Avery at her tree in her Sit Spot. She was copying the songs of birds.
Henry in his Sit Spot.
Isaiah. I think his stick was a rocket launcher.
Paisley in her Sit Spot.
We found tons of Indian Paintbrush.
Dakota was pointing out blackberry plants everywhere!
Remember, families, please take your kids out to the woods this summer. They would love to share their favorite places with you. Thanks for a fabulous year!
