In observing my kiddos, I have noticed they all explore differently. Part of this may be dependent on age, maybe even gender differences. But, I think most of it can be attributed to them being individuals with different personalities, needs, and objectives.
Downy feathers the color of rain clouds litter the landscape around our home. Soft cooing can be heard from the eaves of the house. Wings whistle as birds take to the sky. Yes, it is autumn in Missouri, and it is also dove season. Mourning doves are the first species of birds we have chosen to study.
Learning environment can make or break it for kids. Too much going on can equal distraction for some, too little action can quickly mean boredom for others. One place I can always take my kids where the setting is just right is OUTSIDE! Nature surrounds us, and peace envelops us.
