During our Teacher Training we spent time brainstorming ideas about our Tiny Treks. Here are some thoughts from our amazing teachers. Tiny Treks is that special day a week that we get together with our Tiny Treks Family spending two hours growing relationships. Tiny Treks is about intentional connections with nature, friends and family. Smell, Touch Taste Feel in nature while we educate on colors, insects, animals, science, math and teamwork while learning through and about nature. More to come…
Three Ways to Enhance Sibling Relationships
1. Create enjoyable shared experiences where there is no competition, just joyful activities. There are a few unique programs that invite multi-age children to participate and each child is able to experience the class or program at their own pace in their own way.
2. Do not compare children, EVER! This is so hard not to do, however comparisons lead to resentment, jealousy, anger and frustration.
3. Treat each child uniquely not equally. There is no such thing as equal, so if it impossible to achieve, try the unique approach. Each child come with their own special gifts, cherish them. See what they need.
Finding cover to read a story to our eager Tiny Trekkers. The wind turned the umbrella upside down! Lots of science concepts were taught in real time yesterday. Teacher Susan wrote a lovely thank you to her stellar Wednesday group who has been having a blast splashing and exploring in the puddles the past few months. Here is what some of our amazing families wrote back. “Thank you all for being you ❣️””It was a blast! I am just so in awe of these amazing kids— not one of them complained at all! They were content eating their soggy tortillas and braving the wind and rain. This is good conditioning for life. Loved watching Danny happily dip his tomatoes in his hummus soup. Great group!🌈
Hummus soup and all the positive energy in our Tiny Treks classes is the greatest testimonial for our amazing, special families and teachers. We are so grateful.
