Notes from the Trail #15, 4/18/17

After having been away from the outdoor classroom for a few weeks due to the school schedule, our first graders were eager to explore and notice signs of spring around the forest and vernal pool. Beginning with this entry the class is assuming responsibility for some of the blogging. This effort will be a meaningful exercise to support these developing writers as they learn to use writing to purposefully communicate. As the first graders learn to maintain this blog they will incorporate their technology skills and their writing skills to share experiences. I’m eager to try something new and to release more responsibility to these capable children!

I saw an acorn with about 20 ants and about 20 ant eggs. The ants were scurrying everywhere; they were protecting their eggs. A whole bunch of ants started to crawl on me so I had to put the acorn down.
