Feels like fall

As everyone gathered around for our weekly group meeting the peace pathchers shivered in the cool morning air. It finally feels like fall! As we talked about our weekly experiences everyone was eager to share their stories about the first week with their students. It was apparent to me  that everyone was excited to finally be able to share the garden we have been working so hard on, with the kids.

          After the meeting my early morning shift of Erin, Katie and Carly and I got right to work before our group of students arrived. We weeded the beds, watered and planted some more pineapples. The recently planted pineapples are looking a little sad but we are hoping that they will perk up soon. The time flew by and before we knew it we had a line of kindergarteners waiting for us.

After introducing ourselves to the group as a whole we then split up into smaller groups. We asked them questions about the garden to see how much they know. I was surprised about how much my three 5 year old girls knew about the garden. They were all excited to answer the questions and when we toured through the garden they kept rushing from bed to bed guessing what each plant could be. It is so much fun to teach when the kids are so eager learn! 

I can’t wait to see my kindergarden and first grade group on Monday!
