Welcome to Classroom in the Woods, and the 2014-2015 school year! I have created this blog as a means to communicate the happenings and events of my second grade classroom with families, colleagues, and anyone else who is interested in checking-in. I have decided to take a long view of “classroom” with this expedition. I’ll use this blog as a means to regularly share how I explore nature and the natural world with children, both in the traditional four walls of Room 14, and in the world outside of those walls. Let the adventure of another school year begin!
