Hello, Sunshine! How happy we are to finally get a chance to see you in the garden this month!
The kids at Sullivan Prek love to play in the dirt; so today we talked about COMPOST. Together we read a book, narrated by a little girl who told us that her garden grows from garbage. She defined the kind of garbage that can go into her compost bin — fruit and veggie scraps and garden leftovers — as well as water to keep it moist. Sometimes her mom even mixes the pile with a pitchfork. After some time the materials DECAY and turn into soil for their garden.
The students had a chance to look into the compost pile in their garden for themselves; and to touch real compost, collected from the bottom of the bin.
What fun it is to see this magic happen in real life!
