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!).

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!
