What about some how doing a lesson connecting Sent from my iPhone
Hi all,Can I bookmark this discussion thread?! As an elementary school counselor in VA, and a novice garden enthusiast, this combo makes me so happy!For the first time this year, we have an instructional class called "The 5C's" (Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking and Citizenship - a state-wide initiative.) These 5 "essential skills" jive with the 5 core components of SEL (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Responsible Decision Making, and Relationship Skills) and, because we don't have an existing garden - we're in the VERY early implementation stages - we've been able to create lessons that address garden (and related tasks), and building these "SEL" skills.Your teacher wants to connect the garden to "How The Grinch..." - I'd ask if they'd be willing to address the social awareness/relationship skills aspect of the plot and tie that into a garden activity.Thanks for your question and to this amazing community of educators!
