On Halloween, the playground was decorated and the children had a blast playing super heros, hunting zombies, and saving eachother from this "sticky" trap.  In this sweet little clip, Weston is exploring his imagination (dramatic play) and playing with his classmates - "help, help, help."  Thank goodness he got away.

When you're on the move and outdoors, you never know what cool things you may see.

On this beautiful day, we loaded up the wagon with our buckets and went for a walk in search of some dirt for our mud kitchen.  While there the kiddos climbed, dug, and filled our buckets.  They were such great helps and did most of the work, including loading the buckets into the wagon.  While we worked, we watched a payloader fill a dump truck with dirt - how many scoops to fill the truck?

This week was Halloween, we also stole some dirt for our mud kitchen and watched tractors do some work, and then we end our week by playing in the rain.

 “Team K4!”  It’s our code.  We sing it, chant it, scream it, and are reminded of it daily.  We play together, eat together, cry together, laugh together, fight together, and learn together.  We have each other’s back and in this sweet little clip, after a quick Zombie hunt, these two took a break and started to pick up garbage they noticed around our forest space.  We have spoken about how litter doesn’t belong on the ground, and definitely not in our woods where we play.  Reesey Pie went into the bush to collect this bag she spotted and struggled to get back through, so Dax jumped in to hold the branches back.

Teamwork makes the dream work.

It was a lot of fun watching the children's imaginations run wild as they hunted down various prey.  Here is Moises and Jax trying to sneak up on a deer they see in the distance - did they get it?

Today we broke out the bows that Mary-Dale made for our class and the children had a wonderful time "hunting" imaginary creatures in the woods.  In this clip, Dexter shows Reese how to hold her bow properly, and was a great helper to all the kids - thank you Dex <3

In this short clip, Mary-Dale and Dexter are playing a game of dice that they created.  They are practicing their counting skills and sorting what they roll by numbers.

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.
