One hour of recess is scheduled each morning and each afternoon each day, weather permitting. Our full day students will enjoy activities in all 4 classrooms:
- Language Arts: reading many stories about gardening and vegetables and have an alphabet picnic.
- Math / Music: set up a farmers market and learn the purpose of money and sing garden songs.
- Social Studies/ Art: learn about the role a farmer plays as an important person in our community and create many fun arts and craft projects
- Science/ Dramatic Play: students will be introduced to the concept of life cycles as they learn about plants, frogs, chicks and ladybugs. The students will be cultivating, planting and harvesting their very own garden in our spacious play yard. In these experience they will learn the value of group projects and cooperation.
