Today was our first Forest Friday! The weather was partly sunny and windy. There is only a little snow left in the woods.
Before we went out we worked on our Forest Plans, thinking about what we wanted to do in the woods today.
We had to hike to our new woods. We went through a lot of branches and they smacked Josie and Jaydon in the face. 😦 We had to cross over a river on a branch. We had to climb on the branch and it was slippery! It was hard to get across. Ella jumped. Jaydon fell in twice! He almost fell in the mud. Josie got scared. Mollie almost fell in too!
We had Morning Meeting in the woods. We listened to the sounds around us like the wind, the creaking trees, and our friends moving. For our Message, Ms. Atkins said it and we repeated it.
Henry, Josie, Beatrice, Alexis, Jaydon, and Ella played on a big log. Beatrice pushed Henry off by mistake, but he was okay. There were a bunch of trees close to the log and we didn’t know how to go around them. But Josie figured it out by putting one leg on each side. The log was really slippery! Jaydon was racing to cross the log very quickly.
At the fire circle, Mollie, Alexis, and Reuben were walking on the stumps. Some of them were slippery. We jumped off of them when we got to the end of the line.
Before lunch, Reuben, Mollie, and Ella tried to get everyone to come up to the fire circle by calling out, “It’s time for Art!”
We ate lunch at the fire circle. Ms. Atkins moved the stumps to make tables for us. Ella and Mollie shared a table. We had one glove on and one glove off, so that both of our hands didn’t get cold.
We loved our Forest Friday! We are so excited for next week.
