HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Ah.....the colors of autumn.
Create a seasonal feel of falling leaves right in your classroom! (No need to write names on each hand...it's a community effort and fun to wonder who's hand it is.)
Trace a hand on fall-colored construction paper. Cut out. Punch a hole. Thread through hole. Hang from ceiling.
A report from National Trust presents us with compelling evidence that we as a nation, and especially our children, are exhibiting the symptoms of a modern phenomenon known as ‘Nature Deficit Disorder.’
"We look at what this disorder is costing us, why it’s proving so difficult to reverse, and gather current thinking on what we must do to eliminate it..." (Natural Childhood, by Stephen Moss)
