Forest Books!

We have started an important part of our Forest Monday routine: Forest Plans and Journals. They go together to make a Forest Book, which will have each student’s plans and journal pages for the whole year. Before we go out, each student makes a plan for what they want to do, find, or play in the woods. After we return, they write a journal page about what they actually did. Sometimes they did their plan, sometimes they didn’t!

In our plans and journals, we are working on drawing clear pictures that show details, adding labels, and writing the date. Many kids are also starting to try and write sentences too.

Isla’s plan was to “climb on the fort.”

This is Isla’s journal. She and Charlotte did climb on it, and Mrs. Johnson (Avery’s mom) told her to stop because it might break!

Gregory’s plan was to play Nexo Knights. He wrote it up the side, so I helped him make it easier for other people to read.

In his journal, Gregory wrote about the most significant part of his Forest Monday: That he and Henry chopped up a huge semi-rotten log and pulled all the branches off it!

Ainsley’s plan was to lie on the big log.

Though she played in the fort for a long time with Isla and Willow, she chose to journal about her Sit Spot. It is next to Paisley’s.

Isaiah also wanted to play Nexo Knights with his friends including Paisley.
