Hello everyone. We are talking about leaves again this week. It’s been so lovely to have this nice dry, sunny weather to appreciate some crunchy dry leaves and also to soak in the brilliant display of colors that the foliage is offering this year. This week we will be focusing on the role that leaves play in the life of the tree, and on why leaves are turning colors and dropping off at this time of year.
Next week we will begin focusing on the whole tree.
At the park we have been having fun climbing hills, trees and inventing games with big leaf maple leaves. Since school began I have seen some real advances in everyone’s agility and ability to handle rough terrain with confidence. I also have noticed an improved awareness of birds calls around us, and some people are starting to identify the calls.
Have a great week!
