Green Adventure Project
A Day In The Life
We learn by doing. We explore, create, think outside the box, and celebrate teachable moments.
Where our journey takes us...
Green Adventure Project is based on a foundation of kindness, community, and respect. We ask that our Educators and Learners work together to create a vibrant community where we celebrate our differences and learn from other's experiences. Together we create a set of expectations that guide us through our school year, these expectations will adapt as we learn and grow. We work with each individual child to develop skills in communication, problem solving, creative innovation, cooperation, and establishing a growth mindset.
As Learners arrive they're invited to participate in a games, reading stories, art, and writing prompts.
We start our days together as a group. Morning Meetings are times to discuss our expectations, set daily intentions, and warm up our brains.
Each day our learning community will come together to tidy our space, take care of our animals, help with small projects, and make sure our surroundings are welcoming and conducive to learning.
We use the forests, creek, and meadows of our outdoor classroom as a foundation for hands-on learning opportunities. Place based education helps to build confidence and awareness, while nature inspires us to seek a deeper level of learning.
We'll come together for snack each morning while we take turns sharing our favorite books, poems, and plays.
Brains On! Is the academic portion of our day where Learners are participating in lessons in English Language Arts, Math, and Science. Learners work in groups of similar ages to build their confidence in learning.
Lunchtime is intentionally reserved for eating, open-ended play, and thoughtful conversations. Unstructured free time helps to develop friendships and community.
Nature exploration fosters a sense of respect and stewardship for the natural world, develops an opportunity for imaginative play, and encourages creative innovation.
We end our day together reflecting on work we've accomplished, share gratitude, and look forward to the next time we'll be together. After a great day together our Learners are picked up or join our optional After School Program.
