Students are introduced to sustainable practices through their daily routines in the classroom environment, instilling early stewardship to the care of our earth.
• Students recycle materials such as paper and plastic.
• Students see the cycle of organic material from consumption to seeds to plants and back again to food.
• Through snack time, students learn about compostable materials and compost foods.
Consistent observing and tending to plants’ needs for watering are part of the children’s daily experiences.
Photographs of combustible materials and of recyclables are new materials for the toddler program.
Laminated picture cards and vocabulary cards are inserted in fabric sleeves, and directors can use them to connect with the actual use of recyclables in the classroom and what the students can put into their compost buckets after snack and lunches.
Teachers plant seeds with the students and utilize the school’s compost for those plantings.
Students adhere to sustainable practices in the everyday life of the classroom, broadening their awareness and sense of responsibility and relationship to the earth. The ultimate goal is for students to become active stewards of the earth and to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for our relationship to the larger ecological environment.
