This morning we took our kindergarteners over to the school’s farm to teach them how to plant peppers. Rain was on the horizon, but luckily it held off until after we had returned, sweaty and dirty from digging holes in the raised soil beds.
The kids really enjoyed planting their “own” pepper plants and packing dirt down over the roots. Juliet asked me, “Sydney Teacher, where’s water? My plant need water.” I told her that she shouldn’t worry as it was going to rain soon. They were so excited to be raising and taking care of something. It was really nice to see, honestly.
We gave the kids name cards to attach to their plants so that we could show them how much their plants have grown over the next few months. It was an adorable (yet humid) day at Trinity School Farm. Can’t wait for next month’s trip! ^^
