Shimmying up trees

Posted: October 24, 2017

There is so much to do and find in the forest.  On Monday, the children discovered a fallen tree and took turns climbing and balancing on it.  Keeping a watchful eye, I observed the kiddos assessing the tree and plotting was to climb across it.  Some tried to walk on it, some crawled, while others sat and shimmied their way up.  Giving the children space to take risks helps use their problem solving skills and boosts their confidence in themselves.  Do you feel safe up there Silas?  Thumbs up.
