Mrs. Kuhl’s fourth grade class has buddied up with Ms. Stevenson’s kindergardeners for a community building project in the garden. The partner classes began their year by reading about gardening and working together on an indoor project about their garden books. Outside, they went outside in small groups for a guided exploration of the garden, to help them get oriented to using their senses outdoors. This week the classes planted seeds for three different kinds of radishes — long white, red and white, and small red radishes. Inside, they painted rocks to decorate their garden bed. Now the waiting begins! When will the seedlings pop up?
