Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that four months of outdoor school have already come and gone. We are in awe of how well the children have adapted to outdoor learning and are so grateful to the parents who continue to send their child/ren bundled up and ready to embrace any kind of weather.
The gumdrop tree is (finally!) blooming again. This is a magical tree that only blooms at BCNS…and only in January. Each day, the children are invited to pick a gumdrop off the tree and share a special hope or wish. As you can probably imagine, some of these wishes are very entertaining.
Gumdrop Tree (by Teacher Kari)
We have a little gumdrop tree,
Its flowers are so sweet,
First, I make a special wish,
Then I choose a piece to eat.
Which color shall I choose today?
Green, pink, white, or blue?
How does the gumdrop tree keep blooming?
And will my wish come true?
