Adventures in Learning | Trees!
This may be my most favorite episode yet! In this episode of Adventures in Learning, I called up my neighbor Teresa to teach us about trees. She’s a trail guide and is passionate about nature.
Teresa is one incredible woman. My kids love her. I love her. Not only is she former police officer (who just happened to appear on the show Cops—for real!), and mom to three teenaged boys, she once rescued an injured hawk we found in our backyard. No joke. A HAWK! In our teeny tiny back yard. Have you seen their talons?!
ps. This series has been an incredible experience for our family. It is one of the first series of its kind: parenting. In fact, no one has wanted to touch a parenting series before, but PBS Parents is taking the risk. We are essentially the guinea pigs. Eek!
My goal is to show useable ideas and inspire kids and parents to make connections beyond the classroom. Parents don’t need to be educators, it’s more about learning with our kids as we go along.
If you like it, please share it! Tell your friends and watch it with your kids. (I’ve been told kids really like the series ;) You can use #AinL. Maybe we can help encourage others to develop content like this. It would be incredible if there was a new wave of programming that showed different styles of parenting and families, wouldn’t it?
If there is something you’d like to see, please feel free to let me know.
