EXPLORATION, FRESH AIR, AND FUN WITH NATURE!  But, why?  

1.  It invites children to learn science.  Children are natural explorers.  This will add literacy to the curriculum while building vocabulary and knowledge.  Children need to TOUCH, TASTE, SMELL, STUDY, AND HAVE FUN with exploration.

2.  OUTSIDE MEANS ADVENTURE, PHYSICAL HEALTH, SOCIAL INTERACTION AND COLLABORATION.  Conversations emerge through science and outside play.  Relationships will grow amongst children and teachers.  Have fun with problem solving, taking turns, learning self-control, following rules, and taking risks.

3.  LET’S CONNECT TO THE REAL WORLD…lose the computers, lap tops, and cell phones.  Children will develop more comprehensive knowledge about their world when they are given a chance to watch, observe, predict, and learn in the moment!

Words of Wisdom to ALL parents…

Lose your cell phone.  Turn off the television.  Make your children your priority in life.  Teaching moments for children are all of the time.  Cooking can include science and math.  Outside time with intentional learning activities creates joyful, engaging activities and also fond memories.  Make mud pies and forts.  These projects support STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).  Time spent outside can lead to better physical and mental health, improved sleep, and cognitive, social, and emotional gains for young children and for ADULTS!   Playing is Fun for all of us.
