Kindergarten is one of the greatest journeys you and your child will ever experience. Our Kindergarten team believes deeply in a developmental approach to educating this age group and so we strive to provide experiences and guidance that will nurture our youngest students. A weekly Children’s Garden class allows our children to learn classroom group dynamics as well as science, social studies, and math concepts. Large and small motor skills development is a priority during class time. The Kindergarten team is always available to any of our Kindergarten families to add additional support.

December in the Garden
We brought in the holiday times by learning different traditions of various families. We read Night Tree by Eve Bunting and we discovered the magic of two versions of the Gingerbread Man/Baby. Our last story will be The Nutcracker, an adaptation of Tchaikovsky's story and ballet.
We did harvest our kale and roasted it with sea salt for a delicious snack. We continue to nurture our garden into the winter.
Artist of the Month
Our artist this month is actually and couple of printers named Currier and Ives. In class our discussion will begin with what the students notice about the winter scene and what they wonder about this piece of art. We will continue a conversation about primary and secondary colors, lines, and the horizon line. They will use oil pastels with a water color wash to make their own winter scene.
