☀️ We begin each day of school with a yoga session led by @browneyedbec

⛰ Outdoor yoga has been a wonderful way for our students to get moving in the mornings before we start our academic classes. It definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day!

🧘🏽 What’s your favorite yoga pose?

🍀 At Clover Community School, we believe that everything is special.

♻️ Nothing goes to waste here! Wooden planks become race tracks, steel triangles become spaceships, and anything can become an experiment.

🌱 This is what learning is supposed to look like: real life applications with real life friends in a real life place.

⚡️🐁 Do you have a favorite Pokémon?

🎴 Our students sure do! Every Friday, our students bring their cards to play and trade together.

🤝 It’s a great opportunity for them to practice social skills while having fun with their peers!

A day in the life of our school:
Ms. Erin and Ms. Sharon reviewed social skills with students, diving into rude behaviors and how to defeat them! We role played and had real discussions about things teachers and students have seen here at school or home. Our focus today was: laughing at people when we shouldn't, using tissues, using a napkin at lunch and eating slower so as not to make a mess and give others weird thoughts.
We had a lovely outside break with our animals then students wrote a bio poem on a person that is not ourselves or a family member. Great job!

This afternoon Ms. Becca's groups did a follow up tree check to observe changes and note any possible signs of spring. Mr. Tyler's groups started fires using solar energy! Perfect, sunny day for it!

🎁 Our students got a special treat on “Foodie Friday” last week!

🍒 After sampling fruit leathers made from dehydrated strawberries, cherries, and blackberries, we enjoyed some cookies!

🥳 I bet you can guess what the kids were more excited about!

👓 What are you reading today?

📖 Reading time is an opportunity for our students to wind down a bit and focus on the topics they are interested in.

🏛 Our school library is stocked with everything from “Captain Underpants” to Greek mythology. Students can take their pick!

📚 Most of our books are donated by folks in the community. We are so grateful for the generosity that keeps fresh batches of books in our library!

🥾 Our students don’t let a little mud prevent them from having a great day here at the farm!

🌱 Getting dirty is part of being a kid. So much learning happens from simply interacting with the environment. It’s always inspiring to see dirty boots and big smiles at the end of the day!

🍀 What’s something new you learned about the Earth today?
