US Grade 3 - 6
When young people have regular opportunities to experience nature they grow a better understanding and appreciation of how to healthily interact and live within the natural environment. Time spent outdoors allows them to develop their coordination, motor skills, and better assess their own abilities when taking risks - which leads to greater self confidence and self awareness.

Students will learn to share outdoor experiences, stretch their creative muscles, exchange ideas and stories, and take turns with kindness as they practice their communication and cooperation skills. While outside, they will learn self-awareness, improved balance and coordination, and continue to develop fine and gross motor skills. Students will practice the valuable skills of imaginative play, asking questions, decision making, and problem-solving. Students will grow in their appreciation and connection to the natural world, learning to observe and respect the things around them.
I received my certification as a Master Forest Kindergarten Teacher from The Wauhatchie School/Forest School Teacher Institute, and have taught in the fields of Forest Kindergarten, nature schools, and outdoor education for over 20 years. As a teacher, I greatly value listening to children and giving them gentle guidance and a warm and encouraging space to follow their interests and try new things. I believe that every child can and should be able to experience the wholistic benefits of the Forest School philosophy, regardless of their access to a traditional program... and I hope this class will allow us to bring the wonder and joy of nature to your child, wherever you may be, and however you are able to bring them outdoors.
Homework OfferedThough not a requirement, students are encouraged to create a nature journal, bring a found natural item to class, or create other nature-inspired artistic expressions of their experiences to bring and share with the class... But just showing up and talking is fine, too!
