In the Garden

We are just completing our first semester of the NEW Kinder-Gardeners class. They learned about the different parts of plants. It has been amazing to see how much the children are learning. Young children learn by exploration of the world around them, and what better place to explore than the garden. At home, try pulling weeds, planting a few seeds, catching toads, or finding ladybugs together. These types of activities are going to not only enhance their physical development and love of nature, but also will help to develop language acquisition and a budding understanding of cause and effect cognitive skills.
