Meet Frederick

Frederick is our new classroom plant.  This umbrella tree has gotten a lot of love from the children.  While he takes up a lot of space, it's space well designated, as plants and natural materials infuse a very positive aesthetic quality to any environment.

In the photos below, Te dons the identifying "plant care" bracelet, designating her to be in charge of the cleaning and watering of the plant.  Here she is using a tissue to gently wipe the dust off of the leaves.

Here, Te fills up a cup to the delineating marker on the watering cup to water Frederick.

Double checking that she has the right amount of water, she ensures that she will give Frederick enough water while leaving some room for other children to water him as well.

And there are definitely lots of children who are ready to help with the watering!

Thank you for the comments! Always appreciated : )

We'll just skip circle time today.

This morning, I thought the kids and I would go outside a little extra early, enjoy the nice cool weather, do the art project I had planned ...
