Kids in the Garden; Learning and Growing

Gardening with kids is a great learning opportunity to teach math, science, social studies, reading, writing and social skills.  We often underestimate the power of a garden as an educational tool.  Here at The Educators' Spin On It, we strongly urge parents and teachers to PLANT A SEED with your child and watch them grow.



Kids in the Garden; Learning and Growing

We are EXCITED to announce that this MARCH we will be hosting 31 Days of Kids in the Garden; Learning and Growing, a collection of articles all geared to help parents and teachers interact with their children in the garden.  We hope to provide you with tips on which plants to chose, how to incorporate academics into your gardening and give you some ideas on how to make your garden more "global." (Raising Global Kids is my parenting goal of this year)

If you have any questions or would like to connect with us for this and future projects, please e-mail us at theeducatorsspinonit at gmail.com

Mark your calendars for March!

Celebrate on March 31!!! 

Join us on March 31st to plant a seed with your child.  Share your photos with us anytime on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.  Let's inspire each other!!! Use the hashtag #plantaseed to connect with other gardeners!

We hope to inspire you to garden with your child this year!!!
