Natural Writing Nooks

We've had a magnificent fall at Birches. Taking advantage of the lingering warm weather, we've been getting outside as much as possible. This week, one group decided to go outside for Writing Workshop. They weren't writing about nature or the outdoors, but they decided it just feels nice to sit and write while the sun warms your face and a gentle breeze blows across your back.

These 1st Graders found their own spots where they could curl up and work on their All About Me books. Given a bit more space and a fresh environment, all the children were completely invested in their writing, and this engagement showed in their finished work!
