There is so much to do and see outside.  I am often amazed by the kiddos and the games and shenanigans they get into during our adventure time.  Since winter hit us and snow blankets the school yard, we venture outside with only the necessitites - snowpants, boots, a warm jacket, mitts, and hat.  That's it.  No toys, no equipment, no extra materials (except for spare mittens shoved in my pockets).  Everything we need is already outdoors and the only request/comment the children can be heard making is, "I need a stick."  

On this lovely morning, while exploring the school yard and playing on a new snow mountain, the students attention was immediately grabbed by some exciting work taking place nearby.  NB Power was on the scene installing a light fixture that will making evening skating more fun and safe.  The children sat and watched the men at work for quite some time, asking some great questions and making interesting observations.

We’ve been outside a lot the last couple weeks because when you’re dressed for the weather, there’s no reason to be stuck inside.

Team K4 has defintely taken over the woods this year and really made it our own, however, it's days like these that remind us that we actually share this space with a lot of critter friends.  In this video, the boys are hot on the trail of some recent visitors.

Two weeks into the new school year and Team K4 is on a roll.  The weather has brought us a lot of snow, cold temperatures, rain, and ice, none of it is holding us back.  Thanks to Anthony Francis, the children have been climbing the snow mountains in the school yard, but most importantly, thank you to our Mother Earth for bringing the snow!  So much gross motor fun happening these days.  In this video, just a few days after our most recent blizzard, the children try to explore their forest space.  It has changed a lot and all the snow has made the familar grounds difficult, yet still fun, to navigate.  Some areas were easy to walk on, while others collapsed beneath your feet.  The children enjoyed the afternoon, jumping, climbing, wiggling, crawling, sticking and unsticking themselves from natures snowy grasps.
