Last Forest Monday

This week was our last Forest Monday. We read the book All the Places to Love by Patricia MacLachlan and talked about places we love– at home, school, and in our woods.

Dakota was pointing out blackberry plants everywhere! 

Remember, families, please take your kids out to the woods this summer. They would love to share their favorite places with you. Thanks for a fabulous year!
