Wintonbury Garden is a GO

Last night we got the go ahead from the PTO to purchase some pre-planned habitat gardens from http://www.prairienursery.com! I’m so excited to finally get our sustainable and native garden project off the ground!  The idea is to transform our underutilized courtyard space into an outdoor classroom where students can learn about habitats, life cycles, living and non-ling, the five senses, etc. outside in the sunshine rather than out of a book or on a screen.  You can check out a copy of my garden proposal here: Courtyard Garden Proposal 2014 and read all about native plants and schoolyard habitats on Cornell’s website: http://www.birdsleuth.org/habitatchallenge/

 

WE’RE BACK!

YAY! School is here and I’m SO EXCITED! This year is extra exciting because the Technology teacher and I are teaming up to bring bigger and better interdisciplinary projects to our high school students.  I also have a brand new space right next to the technology classroom to make collaborating even easier AND I finally got to put up all of the great posters I bought last year. 🙂  Here’s a panoramic view of my new art classroom, ignore the green screen… it’ll be covered by a curtain tomorrow.
