On May 1st we came together for our final community celebration of the 2014-2015 school year to celebrate May Day. The children had been practicing their dance and song for weeks. Families brought fresh flowers in and together we built flower wreaths for our heads. The children beautifully sang their songs and skipped around the May Pole, while the ribbons wove an intricate pattern up the pole. Our Grades children, along with their teacher, serenaded us on violin.
Afterwards we shared food, drink, and best of all, each others company. Learn more about the origins of the maypole here.
This week we begin a new series on the blog called "A Window In." They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, and these images are just that. A window into a day of vibrant learning, happening at our sweet little school inspired by Waldorf Education.
We see color, movement, exploration, collaboration, play, building and growing. We see our younger children learning from our older children during a woodworking class and our Sunflower Nursery children learning to garden. From dress ups to a circle time where a tale of the three bears is told, here is a look into Bayou Village School from this past week.
This is Bayou Village School's space to share stories, happenings, recipes, ideas, and garden and festival life, associated with our magical school.
