The crocuses are once again blooming; snow drops are drooping. Today I went for a walk with just a hoodie and vest (no toque, no rain boots…) I saw a quartet of fat robins digging in the dirt. These are the signs. Spring is on its way.
At the beginning of the school year, I returned to work with a renewed connection with the natural world, and a determination to keep outdoor education at the forefront. Though my commitment has not lessened, it just seems that my energies have been drawn elsewhere these past few months (such as, writing a new class blog to share learning with families). Posting to the Create Discover blog fell by the wayside. A de facto hiatus.
Well. With spring comes new energy. Create Discover Kindergarten will continue to highlight the importance of outdoor education in early learning, and may also broach some new topics. I hope you enjoy reading upcoming posts, and will share your own experiences and connections.
