G for Garden

G for Garden



Today we dedicated part of our day to our garden

For a while we have planting and growing
some of our favorite Puerto Rican herbs

this on on top is called Recado
and the one on the bottom is Sweet Peppers



I found this article about Gardening with children that says:
COGNITIVELY GARDENING
EMBRACES ALL ACADEMIC AREAS:MATH, SCIENCE, LITERATURE, MUSIC, LANGUAGE

DEVELOPS CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
ENHANCES CREATIVITY AND IMAGINATION

SOCIALLY / EMOTIONALLY GARDENING PROMOTES
PATIENCE AND PERSERVERANCE
FEELINGS OF ACCOMPLISHMENT; PRIDE IN WORK
SELF HELP SKILLS
RESPONSIBILITY
ENHANCES SELF ESTEEM
COOPERATION

PHYSICALLY GARDENING SUPPORTS
GROSS MOTOR DEVELOPMENT
GENERAL EXERCISE, PHYSICAL STRENGTHENING
VISUAL AND MOTOR PLANNING
BODY PERCEPTION
COORDINATION
FINE MOTOR
EYE-HAND COORDINATION
WORKING WITH TOOLS
DEXTERITY
STIMULATE AND USES ALL 5 SENSES
(Touch, Taste, Hearing, Seeing, Smelling)

SPIRITUALLY GARDENING
MAKES THE CONNECTION BETWEEN GOD, THE CREATOR AND CONCRETE BIBLE LEARNING
RESPECT FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
“Children are a lot closer to the ground; they have an intimate relationship wit the earth.”

DON’T FORGET LIFE BEGAN IN THE GARDEN!
