A Snake to Celebrate Autumn

I think the writing we did together today speaks for itself. Otherwise, it was a glorious first Fall Forest Day, with climbing, fort building, “dirty baths,” worms, pretending to be puppies, apples to taste, and mushrooms to discover (and not taste!).


Our shared writing (the brown part is someone’s hands holding the snake).


I am a huge fan of reptiles and amphibians of all kinds, and I was a tiny bit hesitant about letting these Kindergarteners hold the garter snake we found, but shouldn’t have been. They were so gentle with it! 


We sat in a circle and took turns holding the snake, letting it wind through our fingers and feeling its slippery scutes and rough back. What a treat!
