A great weekend presenting with Gail Molenaar at the Outdoor Educator Comference. Love connecting with like minded educators. Was perfect way to invigorate us for our first day of session!
Perfect weather for outdoor play – enough nip to keep us energized but not so much to make us feel cold and we enjoyed our first batch of Cedar Tea made by the children for a little bit of extra warmth.
Can’t wait to start our place based learning for winter session. Fridays we are having Annishinabe Community Members and Tracks, an aboriginal organization from Trent University coming in to do teachings for the children and their families. Annishnabe teaching fit so well with child directed learning. Children are allowed to come and go with the understanding that what they hear is or will be important for them and what they miss they weren’t meant to hear right now. Love place based learning.
