Classroom Activities

Dear Ivy Hawn Families,

     First, let me start off by saying how much I miss you all!!  I hope everything is going well with online schooling (I’m a parent too…I understand), even in our time apart, I think of your children and I’m wishing you all well.  As we continue our Remarkable Agriscience series, we’ll be completing our pollinator garden.  I’ve enjoyed creating this garden at my home, watching the pollinators arrive, but more than that, I’ve enjoyed sharing this space with your children!  They ask so many questions about “Mrs. Potter’s home” and having this unique opportunity to be transparent with them and at the same time, share agriculture from our small farm, it brings me joy.  The times may be like nothing we’ve experienced before and nothing I certainly hope we ever have to again, but my wish for all of my Ivy Hawn families, is that you are finding the blessings…we’ve found them in our time together creating this special garden.  Enjoy and please check out the questions below.  🙂

Sending virtual hugs,

Mrs. Potter
