This morning, we watched the presentation that we shared during our ECES event yesterday. It was fun to see all of the images, videos, drawing, and words from our tree project last year. Leigh remember the first tree walk. “We walked around and drew pictures of the trees.”
It was also interesting to notice how we’ve learned and grown since last year. When we shared a very early conversation in which Kian said that the trees have bones, Kian was surprised and didn’t recall this. Laughing, he explained that, “Now I think they don’t have bones.”
The children also noticed that here were lots of photos, videos that included Will, and lots of his ideas and words. Well-timed, as we’ve been making him messages and thinking of him a lot over the past two weeks. The images from the cherry blossom trip generated the most excitement, as so many children had fond memories of being their with their families.
Afterward we talked about how much they know now about trees. Charlie said, “Trees keep life alive.” Austin agreed, adding, “They help people breathe. They make oxygen.”
When we opened the blinds, the children noticed our collage in the window—the one we made last year based on Big D’s tree. So many wonderful memories.
