Creating a recipe for friendship. In our Friday Creative Enrichment class, “Food, Fun & Friendship”, Explorations students imagined packaging for various “ingredients” needed for a healthy and fulfilling friendship.
Our oldest class, the Chinook, kicked off the year with a two night overnight experience together with outdoor teachers and parent volunteers. They explored the wilderness near Cle Elum, played games, and created music together.
Our Coho kids have been thriving in our play based learning classroom this year. Field trips with their Kokanee classmates have also been extra special.
Whether it was watching for salmon, exploring the beach, or learning skills like safe fire building, each child at The Bridge School has experienced learning in nature this past fall with our Wilderness Explorations Instructors and parent volunteers.
Our Arts & Crafts of Native Peoples class took a field trip to visit the Duwamish River and the Duwamish Long House & Cultural Center. They learned about the history of the Duwamish River, the Duwamish Tribe and native plants.
Learning fire building skills and roasting apples on a cold fall day.
While visiting Seahurst, the Coho class helped the Toadstool Fairy prepare the forest for winter! We learned about how and why trees get ready for colder weather, and then spread some winter fairy dust to help!
The Kokanee class used the wood chip pile in math, calculating how many buckets it will take to move the whole pile to the playground. They took turns beautifully, tallying and shoveling.
The Coho class had fun practicing writing letters with a brush and cornstarch on festive fall pumpkins. It feels fun on hands and fingers too!
The Chinook class embraced their own uniqueness by envisioning, designing and illustrating their own dream house, inspired by the book, The Big Orange Splot.
