Noticing

This year we have worked with the students to inquiry, notice, question and wonder. During our morning circle, I was sitting with the junior kindergarten students, and I was amazed at their unprompted comments. They openly shared how they were feeling and why. What amazed me was the way they commented on nature and what they had noticed and how it made them feel. Our focus on signs of spring opened the students’ eyes to their own surroundings. I’ve attached a pic collage of some of their comments. Thank you to the parents who have embraced this noticing stance and help their child look closely at their environment and question what they see. One of our students brought in Tiger Lily bulbs and compared the shape, size and growth of the bulbs to the tulips and daffodil bulbs we looked closely at last week. Together, we have created students who are aware of their surroundings, question and think about what they see. Thank you for your partnership in inquiry. We hope our students continue to grow and question and notice the world around them.
