All the classes had a nature immersion experience with Andrea (Alpenglow School's Nature Immersion Specialist) this month. During these first outdoor excursions, nature or field journals were incorporated. No matter the age or class, it was remarkable to see the pride and care the students showed in creating their nature reflections. They captured their observations, their learning and their many wonderments while outside. These journals will be a nice addition to their main lesson books and hopefully a treasured momento to this year’s learning.
The division 1 wing (Kindergarten, Grade 1/2 & Grade 2/3) also has a new weather tree. Every day, the students will record their daily weather observations by colouring a leaf. There is a leaf to mark every school day this year. However, we just didn’t expect so many ‘white’ coloured leaves this fall!
Don’t forget...if you’re interested in learning more about the school’s nature immesion program please join Andrea for an outdoor evening talk on October 16th, 5:30-6:30 pm. Meet by the fire ring behind the school.
