Our first class was moved inside since today's high was 56 degrees. We worked with K-2nd grade EBD students on identifying similarities and differences of different animals. This was actually wonderful since the class is pretty small and we were able to work one on one with the students. I find that EBD students are actually extremely bright, they just have trouble expressing themselves, so one on one is ideal to really get to know them.
On Thursdays, I've decided to be brave an take on a second shift meaning I work with four classes pretty much one right after another. This experience is truly exhausting. Yet, I want to provide these students with the best learning experience in the garden possible, and when it comes time to leave the garden I leave tired but happy.
