Haaaaave you met Yosemite? 🌲This cool guy is back and ready for another action packed summer of plant identification, nature walks and licking banana slugs 🐌 This will be Yosemite's 2nd summer as a counselor and if he had his choice of s'mores, all of the marshmallows would be burnt! 🔥 #campsilvercreek
100. Yıl İlkokulu - #okuldışarıdagünü yaptı.Öğretmenleri Fatma Gül AKDİN eşliğinde ilk olarak zeytin alanının çevre temizliğini yapan öğrenciler sonra zeytin ağaçlarının altına kahvaltı yaptı ve kitaplarını okudular. 🌱🌿 Doğadan buldukları bir nesnenin resmini de yaptıktan sonra "istopbaşına" oyunu ile günü dışarıda tamamladı.
More rain equals more puddles, more puddles equals more fun! 🌧Our environment is our 2nd teacher and it's our inspiration from these experiences that drives our curriculum. We learn about why rain is important, how rain helps our world and how it happens by learning about the water cycle! What a WONDERful world, indeed! #naturepreschool#outdoorschool#optoutside
My child is a rockstar this is true. It is the freedom and the allowance of his surrounding cast that can either bring this to the forefront or confine it to the guiding lines that are typically given positive reinforcement. For those that can see through the defining lines and understand the importance of not breaking the wild I believe you can truly see beauty. Images such as this show not of a nicely defined structured clean well behaved and learned setting but one of creativity, real world, learning, expression and creation that is emphasized and nurtured. However that saying goes the unbeaten path is not always the easy one but it leads to some pretty amazing places. . . #blueskykids#natureschool#outdoorschool @thenativeschool
My youngest daughter opal went to outdoor school last week with her grade school for a few days. Our freshman in high school @emberlife26 got to go as well as a camp counselor which was super awesome since she is the first freshman ever to be excepted as a counselor there. They both had so much fun and were so good. Swipe to see pics of @emberlife26 in the canoe race and for more pics of Opal at camp as well as a snap of my beautiful wife @rubyslipper81
Funny Nature Book Friday:
Grumpy Bear Edition!
This isn’t a new one, but it’s definitely beloved. 🐻
Bruce preferred to live life on his own in the woods. But, he became the “victim of mistaken identity” and ended up becoming Mother to a gaggle of goslings when his eggs (which were supposed to be delicious) hatched. 🐣
With lots of humor and heart, Bruce quickly became a favorite read-aloud in our home. If you like this one, there are more books by @ryanthiggins featuring Bruce and his woodland pals.
Instructor Scot helping put up a shelter but not quite able to reach the branch he was going for... Good thing there were some tall students around to help😂thanks @talltree_sarahb for the awesome shot from 2015/2016 🌲🌲🌲
With only two more weeks of school I’m beginning to have to face the fact that I have to say goodbye to all of these beautiful little souls I’ve grown to love so much over the past year 🌲💚 I feel honored to have been their teacher, and I am so incredibly thankful for all they have taught me. Very excited to continue helping grow little minds and spreading my love for our earth on my next adventure 🌈🌴 1 month and a few days left in SC, so bittersweet. #santacruzforestschool
