Connection

I am overwhelmed with how much these children are learning each and every day; here at Nature School, at home and in their community. They come to school ready to learn and ready to share their knowledge with others. The sharing part is what really is interesting, our need to connect with others. I recently watched Brené Brown’s TED talk on vulnerability; she speaks a lot about connection and it made me watch these children with a different lens this week.  As you look at these photographs, look for ways you see the children connecting- to one another, to themselves and to our land.

Conor enjoys time in the creative play area; there is a wide variety of materials there to offer different types of imaginary pursuits. It seems that children always end up using materials in ways we could never have imagined.
